Doral, FL (PRWEB) November 17, 2011
Millennia Atlantic University (MAU), founded in 2005, has called a modest 8,000 sq. ft. ground-floor space situated in a strip mall home since 2007. The university is now prepared to relocate to an 11,000 sq. ft. facility and occupy three of the four floors at 3801 NW 97th Avenue in Doral.
On Monday, November 21st between 12:00pm and 2:00pm, MAU will host current and future students, faculty members, business leaders, the media, and city officials at an official groundbreaking event. Although the building is constructed, the interior renovations for the university began in late October. The event will signify the ceremonial driving of the “first nails” into the walls of the new facility to proudly display an MAU banner. Guests will be treated to a light lunch, and tours of the facility will be given by university president, Aristides Maza-Duerto, Ph.D. and Brett Moss, the architect and general contractor.
“This is an exciting time for Millennia,” said Aristides Maza-Duerto, president of MAU, “The University has outgrown its current facility, and the new building will allow us to better serve our students and faculty by tripling our available classroom space,” he continued.
The architect for the project, Moss Architecture + Design Group, is aiming for the commercial interior to be LEED certified “green energy efficient” by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBG).
During 2010, MAU was granted accreditation by the Accrediting Council for Independent Schools and Colleges (ACICS) to award associate’s, bachelor’s, and master’s degrees. Earlier this year the university was authorized by the Federal government to offer financial aid Title IV funding to those who qualify. The university will formally occupy the new space in Spring 2012.
