PAC Underpass and Natural Science Door & Storefront Rehabilitation Project
The existing doors and storefronts in the Performing Arts Center underpass and on the Natural Science building were old, and in some cases original to the buildings, and in a state of disrepair. Some did not have automatic door openers and some that did, were not function properly. Many were also hard to open or did not provide the level of desired security.
The project replaced the existing doors and adjoining glass and metal storefronts with new better insulated glass to help in saving money and energy consumption, increase accessibility into the buildings, allow us to upgrade security at these locations, and also enhance the overall appearance and use at these main entrances into both buildings.
The project also included upgrades to the existing box office ticket window in the PAC and enhanced a concurrent construction project by providing greater accessibility to both our visitors and guests parking in West 1, our faculty and staff parking in West 2, as well as access to the New CMFT building and exterior elevator to the Main Plaza.
