2/15/2023 - H-STEM Complex construction is proceeding, although the weather has delayed the concrete floor pouring. The concrete floor work will be completed this week, and then the structural fireproofing will be applied.
Miscellaneous steel install is mostly completed, including the stairs to all levels. Wall framing will continue, and the mechanical/electrical rough-in work is also in progress. In the existing building renovation work, the drywall work is starting and will be completed over the next month. The next few months will see many construction workers on the site, although most of the activity will be inside behind the temporary enclosure.
The project is still on track to be completed and occupied by early 2024.
Construction Site Impacts
As with any substantial construction project, there will be impacts to campus. Please see the graphic below which shows some of these important details. As always, drivers and pedestrians are reminded to keep alert while in and around construction zones and to follow all appropriate directions as well as to stay on designated pedestrian paths.
The northeast door will be usable only for emergency exit during construction. Access into and out of the ChemSci Building will be maintained on the south and west doors. Construction traffic will be primarily along Cliff Drive. For some construction deliveries, vehicles will need to be routed through onto campus. Flag staff will coordinate pedestrian and vehicle traffic. Route goes from construction zone in between the MUB and Library buildings. Grainger's construction office will be located in the Chem Sci Building in Classrooms 104A and B.
