The Capital Facilities Planning construction project update page is intended to let you know what projects are under construction around campus and how they may impact our students, faculty, staff, and visitors.
The page is typically updated every two weeks and will follow the current college semester. Projects are listed alphabetically and give a short synopsis of what construction work is scheduled and what the campus can expect as far as disruptions and/or inconveniences. There are also links under each project to the projects site page for those looking for additional information.
Week of September 21 through Week of September 28
We hope everyone is safe, well, and Covid-free. Here’s what we’ve been working on this summer!
The Contractor has finished the majority of their work on the building, and is focusing on completing the work on their punch lists. We are also finishing upgrades to the building security systems.
This summer, we completed heating and finish upgrades in C-Wing, including renovations to a number of corridor bathrooms. We also replaced the complex’s emergency generator to accommodate future card readers on the exterior entrances into Big Haus, Crossroads, and Farside. The card readers have been delayed to next summer due to the current pandemic.
Outback having finished another (22) bathrooms last past summer, this summer we renovated the remaining four ADA suites in the building.
In both the S-Street and the M-Street buildings, we installed new sprinklers this summer, including a new exterior building to house the pump. Work has been completed, with a few remaining punch list items remaining.
We had to delay the start of renovation work on the Perception Lab in Visual Arts due to the current pandemic. It is now currently scheduled to being in December. Additionally, we are in the process of awarding the design for renovating Studio A in the Music Building.
Due to a break in an old section of piping that feeds The Commons, additional repairs were preformed over the summer at the north end of Lincoln Avenue. We are also working in the Physical Education building replacing old boilers to new energy efficient units. Please refer to our Construction Advisories page.
The first of two phases of mechanical room upgrades to the Dance Building started last summer. The contractor cleaned the existing ductwork and began the preparations needed to replace the large air handlers in the building’s mechanical room. We also replaced the old and tired ceilings on the lower level and renovated the main office suite. This summer we finished the work of installing new air handlers as well as a number of other upgrades. We are now address punch list items as we close out the project.
We completed a new accessible pedestrian pathway along Pine Walk South and the Crossroads residence hall which runs from the Main Plaza down to the Physical Education building. The pathway is now open for use.
Work continues on the renovations to the West 1 and Central 3 parking lots. In West 1 they are complete with the exception of new stripping in the recently paved section. The contractor has just completed their work in the West 2 parking lot. Renovation work in front of the Physical Education building is complete and they have poured the new concrete ramp and stairs near The Commons. Please also refer to our Construction Advisories page.
