October 27, 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 Oct. 29-Nov. 4 at the University of Wyoming.

Campus Irrigation Systems (UW Operations, Plumbing and Grounds Shop) -- Winterizing the campus irrigation system will continue through Oct. 31. Please use caution, as sidewalks and drive areas could become slick or slippery when wet with the cooler temperatures. We appreciate your patience during this time.

Campuswide Fall Roof Cleaning (UW Equipment Shop, Flynn Southwest, Brighton Co., Big Horn Roofing, Laramie; Dec. 1) -- A man lift will be used at various locations on campus buildings with gutters and downspouts to clean leaves and debris before winter. Work will affect parking and pedestrian sidewalks at several locations for short periods of time. Please be cautious to stay clear of equipment and safety barricades, and watch for cleaning crews’ activities.

Anthropology Building (UW Operations, Equipment and Electric Shop) -- Installation of two floodlights on the south wall of Anthropology outside rooms 340 and 370 will begin later this week, weather dependent. Masons and electricians will work outside with a lift. They will have to perform drilling inside the rooms above the ceiling. The south sidewalk will be blocked while they have the lift in operation. Please use caution around the crews.

Cooper House (Stonewood Design & Construction, Laramie; December 2017) -- Reconstruction of the south side outdoor patio columns will be completed to repair deterioration. Staging will be in the southeast corner of the parking lot by the landscape dumpster. Please use caution and observe signs around the construction area.

Fraternity Row East (The Plumbing Co., Laramie; October 2017) -- Fraternity Row may be blocked off occasionally for surface restoration near the Beta House. Please be cautious of crews and equipment in the area.

Central Energy Plant (Arcon Inc., Laramie; October 2017) -- Construction fence is set up around the work area. The sidewalk on the west side of 19th Street is closed, and 19th Street will be blocked occasionally. Please be cautious of crews and equipment in the area.

Agriculture C and Engineering Addition Buildings (Summit Sealants, Montrose, Colo.; July 2018) -- Painting, caulking and minor repairs to the exteriors of Agriculture C and Engineering are ongoing. The Agriculture C west-end, double-door entrance has scaffolding. Pedestrian traffic is routed through a scaffold passage tunnel to protect pedestrians from drop hazards from work occurring above. Please use caution around crews.

Earth Sciences Building Filter Upgrades (Mullen’s Heating, Laramie) -- Filter upgrades will be conducted in the main air-handling unit in the basement of Earth Sciences Oct. 31-Nov. 3. The unit will be shut down for several hours during the day. The exhaust fan will run, but we request that researchers not use the hoods because the supply air will be shut off and the make-up air will then have to come from corridors and/or exterior doors. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but this will help us in terms of energy efficiency and better air filtration in the building.

Arena-Auditorium Addition and Renovations (General contractor Sletten Construction of Wyoming Inc., Cody; October 2017) -- Parking on the east side of the building will be blocked for the project duration. Access to the A-A is closed. Be cautious of equipment, vehicles and construction crews in the area.

Engineering Education and Research Building (EERB) (Construction manager GE Johnson Construction Wyoming LLC, Casper; spring 2019) -- Structural steel erection is complete, and miscellaneous detailing remains. Concrete on the metal deck and associated topping slabs will continue for the next few weeks. Concrete block is being placed to form the pilasters around the building. Exterior and interior metal stud framing is underway. Mechanical and electrical rough-in is underway. Please steer clear of heavy equipment or delivery trucks parked on city streets.

Mick and Susie McMurry High Altitude Performance Center (Construction manager at risk GE Johnson Construction Wyoming LLC, Jackson; June 2018) -- Exterior veneer is complete, with the exception of the penthouse detailing. Drywall hanging and finishing are in progress. Painting and all other interior finishes are in progress or will begin this month.
