The push of the button by ITS Chancellor Prof. Dr. Ir Mochamad Ashari MEng, company partners, and ITS leadership ranks marks the start of the construction of the ITS north gate.

ITS Campus, ITS News – After receiving positive reactions from the Surabaya City Government (Pemkot) last year, Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) started the construction of the north gate of the campus. Beginning the process, ITS held a groundbreaking ceremony or laying of the first stone for the building of the north side gate located in the Jalan Mulyosari area Thursday (30/6).

The ceremony was attended directly by ITS Chancellor Prof. Dr. Ir Mochamad Ashari MEng IPU AEng, Secretary of the ITS Board of Trustees (MWA), Dr. Ir Lily Pudjiastuti, Deputy Chancellor II for Planning, Finance and Infrastructure ITS Ir Mas Agus Mardyanto ME Ph.D., and Head of the Inspectorate Surabaya City Dr. Ikhsan SPsi MM and several company partners and ITS leadership ranks.

In his remarks, the rector, often called Ashari, said the construction of the north side of the ITS gate aims to protect state assets mandated to ITS with ​​187 hectares. “Therefore, it is important to protect these assets so that there are no problems in the future,” he said.

In addition to protecting ITS assets, the construction of the north side of the ITS gate also aims to beautify the appearance of the environment around the campus, located in Sukolilo, Surabaya. “This iconic design is expected to become a new icon for Surabaya, and road users will be presented with a more beautiful view, of course,” said Ashari.

This ITS Electrical Engineering Professor revealed that ITS launched the plan to build the north side gate of ITS in 2018. Then in 2021, this development plan will receive support from the Surabaya City Government. “However, because it was delayed due to the pandemic, the north side of the ITS gate has only started construction in 2022,” he said.

The north gate of ITS is targeted to be completed in the next 160 days or in November 2022. The north side of the gate itself will be divided into three parts, namely the central part, the eastern part, and the southern part. In the east part, a gate will be built as a marker of the entrance to the ITS campus area. Then in the south part, we will make a park and ITS name as in the current front gate.

Meanwhile, ITS will build a three-dimensional representation of the ITS symbol in the center of the gate in the form of a roundabout. In the middle of the roundabout, the ITS roundabout monument will be built, surrounded by the Wijaya Kusuma flower monument. “Then the roads around the roundabout will be painted and painted to resemble the teeth that have become an ITS icon so far,” Ashari added.

The ITS north gate is one of the three ITS gate constructions that have been planned. ITS will build two other gates shortly, which are located on the west side (direction to Jalan Kertajaya) and the south side (approach to Jalan Arief Rahman Hakim). “The three gates to be built have different designs, and it is hoped that the construction will run smoothly,” concluded Ashari.
