Campus Construction Update for April 2-8

March 31, 2017

(Note: The weekly construction update highlights only projects with new developments. Comprehensive updates are distributed monthly. For the most recent comprehensive update, click here.)

These are among the construction activities scheduled April 2-8 at the University of Wyoming:

Colder Weather Advisory (UW Operations) -- UW Operations asks building occupants to assist with ensuring buildings and facilities are safe and secure. Make sure all windows and doors are completely closed with windows latched at the end of each day, and report any doors or windows that you are unable to close and secure to the Service Desk (766-6225).

Snow Removal (UW Operations) -- Crews will remove snow as needed throughout the season. Watch for snow-removal equipment; be careful and safe during snow events. Call the Service Desk (766-6225) to report icy spots and problem areas.

UW Operations reports the following activities for the week:

Mick and Susie McMurry High Altitude Performance Center (Construction manager at risk GE Johnson Construction Wyoming LLC, Jackson; June 2018) -- Steel erection for the building is in progress. Although overhead work will be limited to within the construction fence, there will be mobilization of cranes, along with heavier truck traffic in this area. The crane has been moved to the south center of the new building footprint. This will limit the pedestrian access across the north side of the football field on the concrete walkway. Pedestrians will now access the Fieldhouse and the Arena-Auditorium by walking across the field itself; Gate 6 will remain closed until the exterior site work and hardscapes are complete. Access to the Fieldhouse and the A-A via the north end of the field can only be achieved via Gate 4 during games now. The path is slightly south of the north goalposts. All other pedestrian access routes remain. Please use caution when in or near this area.

College of Law (Plumbing Shop, UW Operations) -- Installation of a new ADA-compliant drinking water and bottle filling station is taking place in the basement of the College of Law Building. Work will cause noise disturbance at times, as it is in the library area. Please use caution around crews.

Engineering Education and Research Building (EERB) (Construction manager GE Johnson Construction Wyoming, Casper; spring 2019) -- Underground utility work will begin in early April. Click here to see a map showing revisions to bus routes and street closures. Please observe all construction signs. A significant amount of work also will take place near the Anthropology Building. Please stay clear of the work zone.

Agriculture C and Engineering Buildings (Summit Sealants, Montrose, Colo.; September 2017) -- Summit Sealants will paint, caulk and conduct minor repairs to the exteriors of Agriculture C and Engineering. Please use caution around crews.
