A little more than two weeks before Fall semester is set to begin, the University of Tennessee unveiled its latest multi-million dollar foot facilities services complex.
The 91-thousand square foot complex will house all of the university's facilities services employees, which the school leaders say is a welcome change.
"We were in over a dozen locations," UT associate vice chancellor Dave Irvin said. "We were in houses and and basements and buildings that were meant to be temporary when they were put up in the 50's , so to have a place we can get together as a team is really incredibly exciting."
Crews started the renovation project back in 2014. The building is off Sutherland Avenue and was formerly a marble company's factory and warehouse that was built back in 1908.
Leaders said they plan to preserve some of the original equipment from the old warehouse and reinstall them as sculptures around the property.
