Construction Update

Week of March 30, 2015

Alumni Hall
The brick and stone work for the exterior of Alumni Hall on the west wing will continue and will be followed by the north and east wing as the contractors work counter-clockwise around the building. The brick and stone work will be completed by the end of May.

You will notice that Alumni hall is changing colors from green to blue. This blue color is the air and vapor barrier that will help protect the inside of the building. As the brick and stone work progresses, you will see the exterior of the building taking its shape.

The interior work on Alumni Hall is also in progress starting with the west wing followed by the north and east wings. Work on HVAC, electrical, and plumbing systems, as well as fireproofing application, is ongoing.

Residence Hall B
Excavation will continue this week for the foundation of Residence Hall B. Once the excavation is complete, the contractors will begin the footings and foundation work. Deluxe has begun production on the modular units for Residence Hall B.

Site Work
Installation of the light poles will begin Thursday this week. The work will start along the walkway from the Mortola Library to Kessel, followed by Shirley Beth’s way, Choate parking lot, Goldstein Fitness Center, Paton House and North Hall parking lot.

As the weather improves, landscaping around the campus will be planted.

To help alleviate parking near Miller and Leinhard Halls, the contractors have been instructed to park in Lot R, which is the back lot located behind the townhouses along the tree line of the woods. Contractors and staff working in the construction trailer will now park at the far end of Lot O which is next to North Hall to help alleviate the parking in Lot T. See map below for parking lot detail.

Installation of the remaining light pole bases at the multi-purpose field will be installed this week. Rock drilling is necessary to complete this work. Rock drilling will begin Monday and will continue through the middle of the week.

Work on the athletics fields will continue as the weather improves. The contractors are conducting moisture density tests in the area to record the moisture levels in the soil. Once the contractors get positive test results, they can continue work in this area.

Work on the new Field House will continue this week with the excavation for the foundation and the preparatory work for the installation of footings.

All work is weather dependent, we will promptly notify the community of any changes.
