Project Update as of August 31, 2015

The contractor is nearing the completion of their work in the Farside building, with just minor punch list items left.

Additionally, new piping has been installed in order to upgrade the building's heating systems. The majority of the vertical elements and new fin-tube units going into the individual rooms are complete.  New finishes and corridor lighting has also been installed as well as completion of the remaining renovated bathrooms in the building.

New interior signage has also installed.

Project Overview

The original u-shaped student dormitories, designed by the architectural firm Gwathmey-Siegel, and referred to as Big Haus, Crossroads, and Farside have not had their originally design and built bathrooms upgraded since the buildings were constructed in the early seventies.  These bathrooms do not meet the current code requirements for accessibility and suffer from leaks and failing fixtures.

The College is undertaking a multiple-phased rehabilitiation project to correct these difficiencies.  The project scope includes complete renovations of the existing bathrooms and will include all new sinks, showers, toilets, floor, wall and ceiling finishes, and removal of any hazardous materials.  Additionally, the project includes an overall abatement of hazardous materials in the building.

The first of these projects will focus on Farside.  Due to the scope of the work involved, this project will be done only during the summer months to have the least impact on the students living in the dormitories.
