FAN REPLACEMENT PROJECT
Fans in the Austin, Snow, and Clarke buildings were replaced during the summer session and air ow has been restored to the buildings. These projects replaced the large cooling fans in each building with multiple, smaller fans. This project allows for greater control of air ow throughout buildings.
CLARKE INTERIOR REMODEL PROJECT
This project, which expanded nursing rooms and other classrooms on the third floor of the building, has been completed. The remodel will also allow more wards to meet in the Clarke Building as needs dictate.
TAYLOR RE-ROOF PROJECT
During the summer session, the roof of the Taylor Building was replaced with a white material as opposed to a copper material (as previously reported) that is expected to perform better under extreme weather conditions and increase energy efficiency.
STEAM AND CONDENSATE LINE PROJECTS
Steam and condensate lines throughout campus have been replaced and crews are underway pouring cement to replace the affected sidewalks. All sidewalks should be repaired by the last week of October.
TRACK AND FIELD REPLACEMENT PROJECT
Over the summer, crews replaced the turf on the stadium eld and replaced the track with updated material. While the track still needs lines and numbers painted on it, the eld opened last week for use by intramural sports. Opening of the track for public use is pending.
