RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - Virginia Commonwealth University will cut the ribbon to its newest engineering building during a virtual ceremony on Wednesday.

After more than two years of construction, the College of Engineering’s new facility will officially open on Feb. 3 after a ceremony at 4 p.m.

The event will be attended by university leaders, elected officials and community members, and will be followed by a tour of the facility.

The 133,000-square-foot building at Belvidere and Cary streets will expand the college’s laboratory capacity. A university release states it will support advanced research, economic development initiatives and hands-on approaches to engineering.
