U Idaho's Boise campus gives new lease to a historic building

Today I got a walk through of the U of Idaho College of Law's new building here in Boise, which renovates the historic WPA-era Ada County Courthouse.  It's a great piece of historic preservation and will place the law school's Boise campus between the State Capitol, the State Supreme Court, and the Idaho State Bar building.  It will truly be a great new home for the College's Boise campus.  We move into the new building this summer.  

Incidentally, the building will also be a model of sustainability as it is tied to the city's downtown geothermal heating district, which is the largest in the country.

Below are several pictures of the work-in-progress.
