Academic Restroom Rehabilitation Project

Full renovation of over sixty restrooms on campus to ADA compliance and sustainability standards.

Project Update as of March 15, 2021

We’ve received construction bids back for the first phase construction, which will include renovating restrooms on the 1st floors of the Natural Science and Social Science buildings.  The work also includes new gender neutral restrooms.

The project (which also includes the remaining restrooms) will be divided into multiple phases over the next few summers.  The intent is begin upgrades the first group of restrooms this summer (Phase 1) and then release work in the other buildings in future summers, with the goals of having a set of new renovated ADA accessible restrooms in all of our academic buildings.

A future project will include renovating the remaining restrooms in the buildings, not included as part of this project.

Project Overview

The existing restrooms in many of our academic buildings are original to the buildings and have exceeded their useful life. There have been some periodic upgrades over the years, but many are still in poor condition and need of rehabilitation. This project will rehabilitate these restrooms to be ADA compliant and address sustainability issues by bringing them up to today’s standards.

Project Scope

The project will include full renovations to over (30) restrooms on campus in the Visual Arts, Music, Natural Science and Social Science buildings, both Campus Center North and South, Physical Education, and the Library. Renovations will include removal and replacement of existing toilet and urinal fixtures, lavatories, toilet partitions, ceilings and light fixtures, and wall and floor finishes.

As the buildings will be occupied while the work occurs, the project will be phased so that occupants still have access to working restrooms, with the majority of work occurring over multiple summers.
