The University of Oklahoma Board of Regents is expected to award a contract for the construction of a new rowing practice center on the south side of the Norman campus.

The contract to build the 24,000-square-foot building near the Lloyd Noble Center is one of several items the board will consider during its regular meeting Thursday in Norman.

The Varsity Rowing Practice Center will house indoor practice facilities for the women's intercollegiate rowing team, a training room, workout area, office and meeting spaces, lockers and showers, and storage and laundry areas.

The board also will review architectural firms under consideration for a proposed new Water Innovative Research Laboratory, and the purchase of weather radar equipment for the university's Center or the Analysis and Prediction of Storms.
