Outback Bathroom Rehabilitation Project

Renovating 91 bathrooms in Outback.

Project Update as of December 10, 2018

The contractor completed Phase 2 work this past summer which included renovations to (22) twenty two existing bathrooms on the east side of the 3rd and 4th floors, as well as installing new flooring in the 1st-4th floor corridors.  They are also finishing their punch list work this week.

Over Winter Break we will be renovating tow existing bedrooms on the 1st floor into a new ADA suite.  Next summer we’ll complete bathroom renovations on the 1st and 2nd floors, as well as making some improvements to the ADA suites throughout the building.

Project Overview

The residence hall referred to as ‘Outback’ is a four-story modular building built in 2001. It’s bathrooms have not been updated and are now suffering from aging fixtures, deteriorating waterproofing, and cracks and leaks in the walls and floors. This project will help address these issues and help prevent future interior damages to adjoining rooms.

The scope of work will include renovating (91) bathrooms in the building, replacing existing sinks, toilets, and shower enclosures, replace the aged and damaged floor and wall finishes, and upgrade lighting in these bathrooms to more energy efficient fixtures.

Since the work will be limited to just the summers, work is being planned in phases over the next four summers.
