Our tagline is ‘Using Today’s Technology to Build Tomorrow’s Landmarks’ and the new football stadium will be a landmark that we all will be very proud of for generations to come.”
BurWil Construction Co. has been a long-standing partner with ETSU, having completed multiple construction projects on campus. A few of those projects have included the Buc Ridge Apartments Phase III, the Pharmacy School Building No. 7, Married Student Housing and renovations to the College of Medicine Building 119.
