With the spring semester now complete, construction work is kicking into high gear on campus. Our CMU will include weekly updates on construction progress, detours and interesting facts as campus enhances its learning and teaching environment. Projects on tap range from sophisticated active-learning classrooms and road paving to construction of a $95 million Biosciences Building and a private hotel funded by Lodgco.
Following is an update on work that is underway:
Grawn Hall Bloomberg Terminal — a state-of-the-art financial trading floor, complete with Bloomberg terminals:
All demolition work is scheduled for the week of May 12th. Contractors are working quickly to create new openings along the corridor and install temporary construction walls before students return for the first summer session.
Dow Active Learning Classrooms — improved teaching and learning facilities where faculty serve as coaches while students spend class time problem solving:
The majority of demolition is scheduled for the week of May 12th. In Dow 135 the multilevel concrete tiers are being removed to create a new large space, which will be the same level as the corridor. Contractors are working quickly to install temporary construction walls before students return for the first summer session.
Moore Hall Living Learning — a project upgrading two classrooms and two auditoriums:
All seats were removed from lecture halls 101 and 105. The podiums have been removed and preparations have begun to install large screens. Carpet and tile removal has commenced. In classrooms 203 and 206, furniture has been moved out and will be replaced with new furniture. Podiums have been removed and the rooms are ready for their facelift.
