Neilson Library Construction Update, September 20, 2018

The chilled water shutdown delayed due to unfavorable weather is now scheduled for this Saturday, Sunday and Monday, September 22 through 24. 

The chilled water mains passing through Neilson Library must be relocated at this time to continue work on the foundations for the new Library. The shutdown will cut off chilled water to buildings on the  distribution system above Neilson Library. It will not impact buildings on the distribution system below Neilson Library. 

The temperatures predicted  for the weekend look to be cool enough for HVAC systems to utilize natural outside temperatures to keep buildings comfortable. Read more...

Neilson Library Construction Update, September 10, 2018

For the most part, the sustained disruptive demolition work that we have been experiencing so far this year is a thing of the past. Going forward, there will be some activity in close proximity Hatfield, Wright and Bass from time to time, and Facilities will continue to provide advanced notice as those events are scheduled. 

Next up: on Thursday, September 13 there will be a concrete pumper and cement deliveries to the construction site behind Hatfield Hall in the afternoon. The cement truck deliveries will be through the John M. Green gate and the construction access gate near Hatfield, with a concrete pumping truck parked out behind the building. Work will be completed around 3 p.m.

Facilities is working on a review of work completed at the Neilson site over the past summer, and an outline of activities planned through the fall semester. Stay tuned!
