Update: View a time-lapse video from the month of December showing the first progress of the steel frame below.

There’s nothing quite like watching a building materialize where there once was open field. We experienced just that as the Leah Peterson Learning Commons on campus progressed from concrete foundation to steel frame. The crane set the steel girders in place that will be the frame for the new building, incorporating NNU’s current two-story John E. Riley Library for a comprehensive 56,635 square foot facilty.

You can follow the construction by viewing a live camera feed at nnu.edu/learning commons.

The multifunctional Learning Commons will house the library’s traditional book and periodical collections, a variety of spaces including group study rooms, a quiet reading room, a study space with secured 24/7 access, and individual and collaborative computer workstations designed to address different learning needs. The Learning Commons will also accommodate the University’s network data center and academic services units including Academic Advising and Testing, Academic Support Center, E-learning Services, Information Technology, Technology and Media Resources, and University Archives.

Also housed in the commons will be the Center for Innovation in Teaching and Learning, which will focus on preparing future teachers for the 21st century, training of current teachers (PK—college professors) and administrators, and equipping NNU faculty to bring technology into their teaching.

The Learning Commons is scheduled for completion fall 2014.
