From concrete replacement to roof and elevator renovations, work crews are busy on campus this summer with a variety of state-funded capital improvement projects.
“It’s one of the busiest summers we’ve had for quite a while,” said Rich White, director of Planning and Construction.
Elevator upgrades in Maag Library, Cushwa Hall and the Lincoln Building, roof renovations on the pedestrian bridge and to Ward Beecher, DeBartolo and Cushwa halls and concrete replacement on the campus core are all funded by state capital funds that are restricted for campus improvements.
Also funded by the restricted state dollars are the replacement and upgrade of exterior doors and windows on a handful of campus buildings, upgrades to electrical generators across campus, replacement of the flooring on the main level of Beeghly Center and improvements to lighting on the campus core.
Other projects this summer include roofing on Kilcawley House, routine maintenance to parking decks and the final stage of improvements to DeBartolo Hall, including painting, flooring and lighting on floors two, three and four. In addition, construction of the new Veterans Resource Center, funded in part through private donations, is expected to be completed this summer.
