MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - Kansas State University is planning a groundbreaking ceremony for a $75 million renovation of expansion of a 100-year-old campus building.

The ceremony for the Seaton Hall renovation is scheduled for Friday at 11 a.m. The building houses the College of Architecture, Planning & Design, or APDesign.

The project is being paid for with $60 million in state bonds and $15 million in private gifts and student fees. The project on the 194,000-square-foot project is expected to be ready for fall classes in 2017.

Tim de Noble, dean of APDesign, says the project will turn Seaton Hall into an environmentally sensitive and technically innovative building. The project also will include improved security and technology.

The Regnier family’s V+H Charitable Foundation made a lead gift of $4 million to the project.
