Vulcan Materials donates construction materials for VCU Inger Rice Lodge project
December 9, 2016
The VCU Rice Rivers Center has received tons of support — 475 tons, to be exact — from Vulcan Materials. A donation of rock aggregate has created a stable foundation for a new overnight lodge, a project that will allow up to two dozen students and researchers to stay on-site for intensive fieldwork and instruction.
The 5,000-square-foot lodge, and planned 14,000 square-foot research laboratory, will bolster the center’s research capabilities and teaching mandate.
