January 14, 2010Well, you've probably noticed some changes upon your return—sound walls in Hutchins and Legal Research, "trailer city" above the Smith Library, more equipment and construction workers. A lot has been happening between semesters and we are well into serious construction. Safety is the number one concern on the project, including the safety of our community. It is important that you remember that all construction sites in the building are off-limits for safety reasons. They are hard-hat-only areas, and are for all governance purposes "owned" by the contractor at this time. Please make note of signs as you make your way through the building and keep your eyes up as you walk past the construction sites on Monroe.
You might notice the crane for the academic building has arrived, and workers are starting to pour the concrete footings for the building. In Hutchins, work is beginning on the new bridge and café. Substantial infrastructure work has also begun, so there will be shut downs of water, electricity, and steam throughout the project, but we will give you as much warning as we are able. A few things to note right away:
Welcome back, and have a great start to your semester!
