Science 4 phase 2 renovation
The Science 4 phase 2 renovation is well underway. Most abatement and demolition work was completed in December. Framing for new walls is underway along with work for new electrical, plumbing and HVAC services. Work on foundations for building infills continues.
The project involves work to improve offices, labs and support space. New electrical, mechanical and plumbing systems are also part of the project which will provide surge space to facilitate the phase one renovation of Science 3. This project renovates the west side of Science 4 and the work is similar to what occurred when the east side of the building was renovated two years ago. Project completion is expected in fall 2021.
Science 2 Tower Renovation
The Science 2 Tower renovation project begain in early December. The contractor is currently focused on asbestos abatement and demolition. That work is expected to continue through January 2021. There are some pedestrian detours in place inside the building while this work is underway. The project involves gutting spaces on floors three through eight and complete renovation of those spaces. A number of critical maintenance items will be addressed including asbestos abatement and new mechanical, electrical, plumbing and HVAC systems. The tower exterior was re-clad and new windows installed enhancing energy efficiency under the Science 2 phase I, east wing renovation project which was recently completed.
Hinman Dining Hall
Much progress has been made through the fall and the existing Hinman Dining Hall structure along with the addition to the building are enclosed for the winter. Windows and walls have been installed throughout. Work is continuing on interior walls. Masonry, steel, mechanical, concrete work and work on the penthouse mechanical space is also progressing. The addition is 25,500 sq. ft. encompassing three floors and will house a new lounge, restrooms, program and retail space. The project also involves complete renovation/reconfiguration of the original building including new mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems.
Work is scheduled for completion in summer 2021.
