Campus Construction Update for Nov. 5-11

November 3, 2017

These are among the construction activities scheduled Nov. 5-11 at the University of Wyoming:

Campus Irrigation Systems (UW Operations, Plumbing and Grounds Shop) -- Winterizing the campus irrigation system will continue through Nov. 8. 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.

Central Energy Plant (Arcon Inc., Laramie; December 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.

Engineering Education and Research Building (EERB) (Construction manager GE Johnson Construction Wyoming LLC, Casper; spring 2019) -- Miscellaneous steel detailing remains. Concrete on the metal deck is complete and associated topping slabs are 80 percent complete. Concrete block is being placed to form the pilasters around the building. Exterior and interior metal stud framing is underway. Mechanical/electrical/plumbing rough-ins are 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 interior finishes will begin this month. Please use caution when near the project, and observe all construction signs.

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.

Geology Library Damper Upgrade (Mullen’s Heating, Laramie) -- Filter racks will be added to the outside air dampers in the basement of the Geology Library Nov. 8-10. Controls also will be added to the dampers. Please observe caution around the crews. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

IT Filter Upgrades (Mullen’s Heating, Laramie) -- Filter upgrades will be conducted in the main air-handling units in the penthouse of the Information Technology Building between Nov. 14-17. The units will be shut down for several hours during the day. We will work on one unit at a time so that when one is down, the other unit is still working. 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.

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.

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.

Campus Caulking and Exterior Building Envelope Projects (Wyoming Sealants, Saratoga; November 2017) -- Work is complete at the perimeter of Hoyt Hall, the south side of Ross Hall and the American Heritage Center drainage gutter. Work is ongoing at the Central Energy Plant. Please use caution around equipment and crews.

Campus Roof Replacements (Big Horn Roofing, Laramie; November 2017) -- Roof replacements will occur on Ross Hall over the Rendezvous Café; Arts and Sciences over the auditorium; Bureau of Mines over the south end; and the Central Energy Plant over the generator and south side. Expect noise, dust and intermittent shutdown of HVAC equipment to reflash and prevent odors from entering the occupied areas. Use caution around fenced barricades, the main staging area and hoist equipment.

Education Building, Ed Ag Lab (Laramie Mechanical and Heating Systems and Trident Electric; November 2017) -- Ventilation units and electrical connection upgrades for welding units are being installed. Please use caution around crews and equipment.
