CAPITAL PLAN PROGRESS
Purchase College continues making great progress towards addressing the critical maintenance backlog as we end our current five year 2008 - 2013 Capital Facilities Plan.
We are currently managing over $90 million dollars in critical maintenance projects, and another $35 million dollars in Strategic Initiative and Residence Hall program projects.
We have made steady progress in addressing our critical maintenance backlog during the past few years. Our strategy has been of repairing the exterior of the buildings before we begin interior renovations.
By way of example, at the end of this plan in 2012, all of our academic building roofs will have been replaced and / or will be under warranty.
All of the existing elevators in our academic buildings have been rehabilitated and upgraded.
We are in the process of rehabilitating the exterior masonry walls, windows, and doors in the Visual Arts building, the Library, Main Dining Hall, & the Music Conservatory, as well as a number of our dormitories.
Interior renovation projects are also currently underway including a complete renovation of our Humanities building, mechanical systems upgrade to the Neuberger Museum, and a renovation to a molecular & cellular biology lab suite in the Natural Science building. Additionally, we have completed (10) new technology-enhanced classrooms in the Natural Science building, Library, and the ground floor of the Fort Awesome dormitory.
We are also currently working with a number of architectual and engineering firms on a number of new projects, including the design of a center that will finally give a home to Theater Arts and Film & Media Studies programs, the exterior restoration of the Physical Education building, HVAC systems upgrades to the Dance Conservatory.
