IOWA CITY, Iowa - A number of high profile projects will make the next several years the busiest construction period in the history of the University of Iowa.

"It is the largest amount of work we have ever done on this campus," said Rod Lehnertz, UI's director of planning, design and construction. "[It] probably will be the largest amount of work we'll ever do on this campus in one period of time."

The University is in the midst of an 18-month span where they will bid out an estimated one billion dollars for various projects, Lehnertz said.

A $292 million Children's Hospital is likely the most visible of the projects.

"This is truly transpiring, and it's exciting for all members of the UI campus to see the progress being made," said Scott Turner, executive director of the Children's Hospital.

The Children's Hospital is expected to be completed by 2016. Next year the new 200-square-foot Pappajohn Biomedical Discovery Building on the medical campus is scheduled for completion.

Crews are also preparing to replace Hancher Auditorium, among a number of other flood recovery projects.
