SOUTH BEND -- A building boom is about to begin at the University of Notre Dame, which plans to spend more than $712 million on new construction and renovation projects during the next five years.
"It's 1.3 million square feet of new space," said John Affleck-Graves, the university's executive vice president, who described the latest campus master plan.
In addition to new buildings, there will be at least 100,000 square feet of substantial renovation work in Hesburgh Library.
The projects are expected to provide many jobs, offering a boost to the economy and the area building trades.
