Construction on the H-STEM project began on Monday, May 2, 2022. During the summer of 2022, the majority of work was done on the outside such as the basement/foundations and steel structure are built. 

All of the underground foundation and utility work has been completed.  Steel erection has started and will continue over the next month. By the middle of November, the main outline of the new addition will be visible. At the same time, demolition inside the existing Chemical Sciences and Engineering Building for areas that will be remodeled is proceeding.

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.
