Construction Updates

Service Building Renovation

Last Updated: Thursday, August 6, 2015

Status: Construction Phase

DESCRIPTION AND BACKGROUND:
Facilities Operations & Maintenance, Environmental Health & Safety, Facilities Design & Construction, and the University Police Department are in need of updated facilities. The defunct kitchen facilities' old meat and vegetable coolers have been used to provide temporary storage, and those spaces are not at capacity and not easily accessible. Growing needs of the departments require additional office space and storage/filing space. University Police is compromised, as it is housed in a space that is inadequate for day-to-day departmental operations. The custodial department that has been housed in the basement of College Hall and the new Office of Campus Sustainability will be housed with the rest of Facilities Management to better meet the needs of the department as a whole.

UPDATES:
Construction is underway for Phase 1 of the project. Asbestos removal from the upper level of the Service Building is complete. Demolition is complete and interior framing is underway. The second phase (completing the space currently occupied by UPD) will begin in summer 2015. The construction is expected to be complete by early 2016.
