Week of May 18, 2015
The brick and stone work on the east wing of Alumni Hall is quickly moving along. The contractors have completed the brick work on the west side of the east wing and will be continuing the stone work on the north and south sides of the east wing. The contractors will begin brick work on the north wing and the east side of the east wing will follow. The brick and stone work is on schedule to be completed by the end of June.
The interior work on Alumni Hall continues. This work includes sheetrock installation for the non-modular areas on the first floor, priming and painting the corridors and lounge spaces in the upper floors.
Residence Hall B
The footings and foundation work for both the north and south wings will continue this week. Deluxe is continuing on the production on the modular units for Residence Hall B.
There is site work scheduled to raise Martin Road 8ft to align with the new campus quad and residence halls. This work will begin on Wednesday, May 20th. The campus road off of Entrance 3 from the new service road leading to the new Farm House will be closed off to vehicular traffic during the day with only one lane of traffic opened for emergency egress. The road will be plated in the evening and opened to traffic. The major work that will disrupt traffic in this area will last approximately 4 weeks. While this work is underway, Shirley Beth’s Way will be open to vehicular traffic to allow circulation to the north and west part of campus. Pedestrian traffic will be separated by barriers while Shirley Beth’s Way is opened to vehicular traffic. Please see the logistics plan on page 3 for exact location of the work.
Landscaping around the campus continues this week. There will be work around Choate Pond as plantings occur.
There will be work behind Mortola Library this week as the contractors continue the work of data line installation that will lead from the Kessel Student Center to Willcox Hall. The data lines will run behind the Mortola Library, across the pedestrian pathway and staircase through the road way to Willcox Hall. The contractors are scheduled to cross the staircase later in the week. The work will take place early in the morning to reduce the impact to the community. Please use caution and adhere to the alternative pathways around this area.
The steel work will continue this week on the new Field House. Please expect an increase of delivery trucks while the steel is delivered to campus. This work is expected to be complete in June.
All work is weather dependent, we will promptly notify the community of any changes.
