Week of July 27, 2015
The exterior work on the building is substantially complete. The masons are finishing their final cleanings and touch ups where needed. You will see them on lifts this week while they complete their work. The fencing around Alumni Hall has been removed in select locations to allow for the masons and site contactors to complete the work that is need on and around the building. Please note that this is still an active construction area and is not open.
Final painting and cleaning is progressing in the rooms and corridors and will continue throughout the week. Room furniture is being delivered this week. You can expect large tractor trailers making the deliveries this week.
There has been a slight delay on the building systems work therefore; the temporary certificate of occupancy will not be received this week as expected. The cooling towers were installed on Saturday and we expect them to be functional by early next week. There are also testing and approvals that are needed by Con Edison and the Department of Health to receive our TCO. These tests and approvals are expected in the next two weeks. There are no concerns with having the building ready in time for our Resident Assistants to move in mid-August.
Residence Hall B
Backfill operations on the foundation are underway. Once the work is completed the structure will be ready to assemble the modular units. The deliveries of the modular units will occur once the site work has been completed on Martin Road.
The paving of Martin Road is being held up until the water and gas line installations for Alumni Hall are approved. Once approval is received by Con Edison and the Department of Health, the contractors can completely close the road and pave. Once a date is confirmed we will let the community know. Work on the new pedestrian pathway leading from Choate house to Alumni is also underway.
Finnerty field is scheduled to be complete and turned over to Pace the first week of August. Prep work needed to install the turf on the multi-purpose is underway with the fine grading of the field. The gravel will be installed once the field is completely graded. The turf installation will follow. Progress has been made on the Ianiello Field House. The foundation work and structural steel erection is complete. The roof installation is underway along with the exterior walls.
All work is weather dependent; we will promptly notify the community of any changes.
