PAC Underpass and Natural Science Door & Storefront Rehabilitation Project
Project Update as of August 26, 2021
The contractor has completed most of their work on the doors in the PAC Underpass and a number of door replacements on the Natural Science building.
The Natural Science plaza entrance curtain wall is currently being worked on. The contractor anticipates completion by the end of August.
Unfortunately, one of the new glass panes in the PAC Underpass was broken. We’ve ordered a replacement pane and will install as soon as the glass arrives.
The existing doors and storefronts in the Performing Arts Center underpass and on the Natural Science building are old, and in some cases original to the buildings, and in a state of disrepair. Some do not have automatic door openers and some that them do not function properly. Many are hard to open or do not provide the level of desired security.
This project will replace 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 includes upgrades to the existing box office ticket window in the PAC and enhances 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.
