Arkansas The University of Arkansas is planning to carry out a full restoration and renovation of the Agriculture Building on its Fayetteville campus. While structurally intact, the Collegiate Gothic-style building, completed in 1927, requires full modernization of its mechanical; electrical and plumbing systems; complete repair of the building envelope; and replacement of windows, which must meet the profile and fenestration patterns of the originals, because the building is landmarked. The project is valued at $20 million. University of Arkansas, One University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, 72701. DR#17-00594751.
