Penn State Expected to Spend Millions on Lasch Building, University Park Airport Upgrades

By Jenn Miller

The Penn State Board of Trustees’ Finance Committee recommended the full board approve $2 million in renovations to the Lasch Football Building and $5.6 million in upgrades to University Park Airport today.

Penn State intends to spend $2 million to renovate the team meeting room and lobby of the Lasch Football Building. The project includes new carpeting, lighting, furniture, finishes and wall graphics, as well as new paint and seating at the Nittany Lion Training Table in Pollock Dining Commons.

The full trustees board is expected to vote on the spending at Friday’s meeting at the Penn State Schuylkill campus in Schuylkill Haven.

Meanwhile, the airport upgrades include replacing roughly 378 lights along with wiring, cabling and circuitry along taxiways. The university says the existing lights have reached the end of their life and the circuitry requires increasing maintenance. The new lights will feature energy efficient LED technology.

The university also intends to replace asphalt general aviation apron and demolish some hangars and hangar foundations. The project includes installation of a new general aviation apron, three parking lots, storm water management facilities, lighting, an access road, general grading, erosion and sediment controls, and signing and marking elements.
