Upgrade Site High Voltage Phase 6
This project will upgrade underground manholes, conduit duct banks and high voltage cables to the Science Complex. Work began October 30 with excavation of a trench for a new duct bank adjacent the service drive to the Science 1 loading dock. Access to the dock will be maintained during the work though there may be some brief closures and some parking in the loading dock area will be affected at times. Additional work to install a concrete pad for a transformer will take place between Science 2 and Science 3. Some pedestrian walkways may be closed during this work. Other work will occur in building electrical rooms. Work is expected to take a couple of months to complete.
Pharmacy Basement Facilities
Space in the pharmacy basement will be finished to house University Police dispatch, offices for Environmental Health and Safety as well as an ITS Data Center. Work got underway in October with layout of new spaces.
Pharmacy R&D Building
Design is about 60% complete on a Pharmacy Research and Development building to support Pharmacy research functions. The building will be connected to the School of Pharmacy with completion anticipated in 2020.
Science 2 Renovation Phase 1
Phase one will renovate the entire Physics wing of this 50 year old building. The project will include new multi discipline undergraduate labs, classrooms, restrooms, energy efficient exterior fenestration and updated MEP building systems including air conditioning. The project will be bid in fall 2018 with construction completion in 2020.
Science 2 Tower Renovation
The scope of work for this project is still being developed, but will include gutting spaces on floors three through eight with complete renovation of that space. A number of critical maintenance items will be addressed including asbestos abatement, new mechanical, electrical, plumbing and HVAC systems. The building exterior will be reclad enhancing energy efficiency under the phase I, of the Physics wing renovation project.
Rehab Science Greenhouses
This critical maintenance project will reorganize the research layout of the greenhouses and create a new entrance. Window glazing panels/system will be replaced along with mechanical components including venting, cooling and water distribution systems.
Library Third Floor Renovations
This project entails a complete gut and renovation of Library South third floor including asbestos abatement and installation of new flooring, ceilings and lighting. Mechanical systems serving the area will be replaced/upgraded including air handlers and chiller. The energy management system will also be upgraded so energy systems can be better managed and costs reduced. The third floor will be connected to existing south stair tower.
Engineering Building Renovation Phases 4&5
This critical maintenance project will renovate 66,000 square feet of space in the Engineering Building. Improvements include: Upgrades to HVAC systems including new air handlers, chiller and duct work. Upgrades to power panels, lighting controls, fiber optics and emergency generators. New ADA compliant offices, classrooms and restrooms. New exterior cladding with insulated panels and new windows.
Renovations to Corliss Avenue
Design work is complete on this project to renovate and construct an addition to an old factory building to house the Decker School of Nursing. The project will be bid in fall 2018. The renovation includes classrooms, simulation labs, offices, advising and conference space, an information commons and public spaces as well as mechanical, electrical and plumbing upgrades. The addition will house classrooms, a lobby and an elevator/stair tower. Completion is anticipated in August 2020.
Non-asbestos, selective demolition (bathroom fixtures, partitions, existing carpet, etc.) has been ongoing for the last few weeks. Temporary fire alarm/protection has been installed throughout the building for construction. Pedestrian walkway from Mountainview has been widened and reopened for pedestrian use; contractors to use flag persons when transporting materials in and out of site. Construction fencing has been installed. Entire building abatement is scheduled to begin at the end of October and take about three months to complete. Renovations will get underway as each quadrant is abated.
CIW Community renovations involve asbestos abatement, renovation of bathrooms including upgrades to building MEP systems. Lounge areas and corridors receive new ceilings, flooring and lighting. Lights in bedrooms replaced with energy efficient LED's, rooms and corridors are painted and several hundred new doors/hardware installations are part of the project along with exterior masonry repairs. Renovations have been completed in Seneca and Cayuga and work is now underway in Onondaga.
