Campus Construction Update for October 11 - 17

Half Acre Gymnasium Addition and Renovation (General contractor Groathouse Construction, Inc., Cody; Phase I east reconstruction/addition was substantially completed March 13, 2015; Phase II, historic west renovation, fall 2015).

Phase I of the Half Acre Recreation and Wellness Center is open.  Punch-list tasks and building technology subsystem work toward Phase II renovation will continue post-occupancy.  Pedestrian access to the new south building entrance from Prexy's Pasture and from the east Wyoming Union parking lot has reopened. Please observe temporary barricades, cautionary signage or other posted instructions in areas where work will continue. 

The west historic entrance is closed for Phase II renovation. Additional construction and staging areas are being established.  Phase II deconstruction activities are complete. Renovation is underway throughout Phase II, including mechanical and electrical rough-in and interior layout and framing.  Work on the old gym continues with paint, lighting upgrades, and refinishing and striping the existing gym floor. Running track expansion is complete.  Aquatics subcontract work related to the existing pool, new pool plumbing and the new whirlpool is underway.  Completion of Phase II renovation is now scheduled for fall 2015. 

Construction and staging areas north, east and west of the existing existing building have been established and are closed to all vehicular and pedestrian traffic, except that which is construction related.  Pedestrian pathways north and south of Half Acre Gym remain open; however, the continuing construction activities in this vicinity will result in increased congestion.  Temporary traffic controls, barricades and signs will be established as needed by specific site activities.  Please observe all posted traffic control, construction signs and temporary flagging in the affected areas.
