Excavation Work – Contractor will be working around the existing south entrance to the mechanical room and the new SC 055 and 104 addition to establish rough grade levels to set up for framing and masonry work early next week.

& Employees, Office Moves, Roselawn Renovation.

The pace of work on the Roselawn project has reached a feverish pitch with just two weeks to go until September 12, which VP of Finance, Daryl Bert, announced as the projected ready-to-move-in-date during this year’s Faculty/Staff Fall Conference.  The project team is cautiously optimistic that this can be achieved, however, there is always the chance that an event could occur to cause a delay.

Empty Boxes for Office Moves Available in “The Guild”

& Office Moves.

Information Systems recently unboxed about 100 computers and collapsed and saved the boxes to make them available for employees who are moving to new office locations. They can be accessed just inside the 2nd story west entrance to “The Guild” using the ramp from the Smith Ave parking area. Tape dispensers are next to the boxes for your convenience if wish to “un-collapse” the boxes when you pick them up.  These are medium-sized boxes, about 24 X 15 X 10.
