Campus Construction Update for Week of Jan. 11-17
January 9, 2009 — Facilities Planning Project Managers' Report:
Information Technology (IT) Center -- The Data Center was successfully moved from the old Ivinson Building during the holiday break. Portions of the new building, including the new Data Center, have been used since Dec. 20. Some punch list work (final items to complete on list after walk through of a project) remains in several locations. The contractors will continue to work on these items during the next few weeks.
Work on the exterior building and landscaping that is incomplete or
was added late in the schedule will be completed as the weather permits.
The interior signs, furniture, and other owner-provided items are being
ordered and will be installed as they arrive.

Student Health/Cheney International Center -- Work resumes on the Cheney Plaza this week. Boulders will continue to be set and benches to be constructed. The front door frame to the Student Health building has arrived and will be installed. The lobby area is under construction and should be completed in a week. Students will continue to enter from the east side of the building until the front door area is finished. Student Health offices and the pharmacy on the first floor have been moved to the second floor. Offices located in the basement will remain at this point in time. Construction continues in the west wing of the vacated first and second floors.
College of Law, Moot Court Addition and Renovation -- The structural concrete walls are complete and the structural steel, including the roof decking, was installed last week. The construction is mostly dried in. The work in the locker room and corridor was completed successfully during the holiday break. The circulation route is being diverted through the locker room and will remain this way for several weeks. The work in this area has caused the heating system to get out of balance. This problem may not be completely fixable until after the new systems are installed in a few weeks. This week will include concrete slab-on-grade in the large Moot Court classroom, electrical rough-in, interior wall framing, and clerestory framing at the roof.
Centennial Complex -- The acceptance testing of the fire alarm and pre-action fire suppression systems is complete. Interior punch list items will continue over the next two weeks.
