The Lebanese American University (LAU) is adding a new building to its Jbeil campus for the Faculty of Engineering. It will be finalized in the fall of 2016.

Abniah is the contractor of the $25 million project, which will consist of six floors with a built-up area of 10,600 square meters. It will be equipped with high-tech laboratories and research departments for six engineering specializations: Industrial, mechanical, electrical, computer, civil, and chemical engineering.

Christian Oussi, Executive Director of Media and Public Relations, said: “Gathering engineering students in one building will boost communication between them and help produce better research and studies.”

“We also have a plan to expand the land plot of the Jbeil campus,” said Oussi. The campus will increase from 100,000 to 150,000 m2 and will make LAU’s Jbeil campus the largest in the country, according to Oussi.

LAU also intends to build a library on the Jbeil campus. The project is still in the designing process and the tender will be launched in a few weeks.
