TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The University of Kansas is asking to expand its new School of Business building before construction even begins.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports the school plans to ask the Kansas Board of Regents on Thursday for permission to expand the proposed building.

The four-story building was expected to cost about $65.7 million. But the school of business is growing faster than expected, prompting the request for more offices and teaching space.

The estimated cost of the addition is $6.8 million. The university is seeking private funds for the expansion.

The project will be funded with $62.5 million in private funds and $10 million in university funds.

The building is expected to be completed in time for the 2016-17 academic year.
