Kummer Student Design Center Dedication

On Friday, May 20th, the official dedication of the brand new Kummer Student Design Center took place. The event kicked off at noon with a VIP luncheon to honor the building’s major donors. The “three wisemen”, the ones who spearheaded the project, were long time friends and alumni Richard Arnoldy (CE’69), Robert Brinkmann (CE’71), and Barry Koenemann (CE’70). A donation of $1.25 million from Fred (CE’55) and June Kummer topped off the $2.75 million needed to complete construction.

After the luncheon, the dedication was opened to the public to take tours and talk to the student design team representatives and check out the latest projects. The completed center includes a large fabrication area, machining shop, composites lab, electronics lab, student design suite, kitchen, meeting room, executive offices, and commercial retail space. 
The Solar House Team is thankful to all of the donors who made the Kummer Student Design Center a success. Thank you!
