Construction Updates

Service Building Renovation

Last Updated: Wednesday, April 22, 2015

Status: Construction Phase

DESCRIPTION AND BACKGROUND:
The Facilities Operations and 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. The contractor is working on asbestos removal from the upper level of the Service Building. The second phase- completing the space currently occupied by UPD, will begin right after in summer 2015. The construction is expected to be complete by early 2016.
