Engineering Building Renovations Begin January 28

Renovations to a portion of the Engineering Building will begin Monday, January 28. The contractor will be placing some fencing on the north side of the building along with a dumpster for debris removal. Contractors will be throughout the building as power and other mechanical equipment is dismantled. Beginning February 4, demolition of interior walls on the north side of the building will begin. The work will produce noise throughout the day and construction debris will be removed through the elevator and north stair tower. Interior wall demolition will be limited to the area on the third floor that has not been renovated in previous renovations. Every effort will be made to accomplish the removals producing the most noise to early morning and after hours. Demolition will be completed by the end of February. Renovation of the space will follow and should be less disruptive.

This project will renovate 66,000 square feet of space in the Engineering Building. It includes upgrades to HVAC systems including new air handlers, chiller and duct work along with upgrades to power panels, lighting controls, fiber optics and emergency generators. New ADA compliant offices, classrooms and restrooms are included in the renovation and later work will involve new exterior cladding with insulated panels and new windows.
