Phase 1A: Summer 2019 to Summer 2021

The campus expansion will happen slowly — perhaps one building every two years — and in phases over the coming decades. During Phase 1A, infrastructure and off-campus transportation infrastructure will also be developed.

Follow Our Progress

Our goal is to share the story of the campus development and the ways we will minimize its impact on our surrounding community.

Land Remediation and Reclamation

The first stage of the expansion transforms the former pumice mine and landfill into land that is suitable for development. An innovative process involves reuse of suitable landfill material, properly blended with other materials on-site to fill and regrade both the pumice mine and landfill to create buildable land. By using soil from the landfill to fill the adjoining pumice mine, the number of truckloads of external material will be reduced by an estimated 30,000.
