By 1964, the Civil Engineering program at the University had "the largest full-time enrollment and award[ed] more degrees than any other civil engineering department in the country". In the 1963-1965 biennium, an appropriation to fund Phase I of a new Civil Engineering Building was approved  and construction on the $4.2M  Nathan Newmark Civil Engineering Building was to be completed by November of 1965. 
The building was to "provide facilities for the fields of soil mechanics, sanitary engineering, and reinforced concrete structures".  It honors Nathan Newmark, who began in 1930 as a graduate research assistant in the Department of Civil Engineering, before taking over as Department Head from 1956 to 1973.
