HATTIESBURG — The University of Southern Mississippi plans to renovate Joseph Greene Hall and part of its Chain Technology Building for its College of Health.
The College Board approved an architect to plan the renovation, projected to cost $7 million.
USM’s College of Business plans to vacate Greene Hall early next year for the new Scianna Hall. That would free space for the College of Health and its five departments, now scattered across several buildings.
USM would first renovate Greene Hall. When the college’s Department of Medical and Laboratory Sciences vacates space in the west wing of the Chain Technology Building, USM would renovate that area.
The money would come from past bond bills approved by the Legislature. The estimated budget includes $5.75 million for construction and $287,500 for design fees.
