$6M renovation for Illinois Math and Science Academy dorms

Posted: Updated:
AURORA, Ill. (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Residence halls at the Illinois Math and Science Academy in west suburban Aurora will see a major facelift.

The $6.5 million work will renovate all seven residence halls at IMSA's campus, Gov. Pat Quinn said Thursday in announcing the project. It will include upgrades to climate control, electrical and plumbing systems, and window replacement.

Roughly $6.26 million from the Illinois Jobs Now! program will fund the project, as well as $280,000 from two federal grants from the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity.

"IMSA attracts academically talented students from all around Illinois who are highly interested in a collaborative learning experience in science, technology, engineering and mathematics," IMSA President Catherine Veal said in the statement.

The Illinois Capital Development Board will manage the two-phase renovation. Construction contracts went to various businesses based in northern Illinois.
