Roof Work – Contractor will be repairing existing roof where old HVAC unit was removed and will tie the old roof to the new roof being built over the new SC104.  This will likely create some “noise overhead” in places like SC 106.

Sprinkler Work – Contractor should finish phase 1 and phase 2 work this week.

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.

Drywall Work – nearly all phase 2 drywall is finished.  When phase 1 area is “dried in” (roof and walls are weather tight) drywall installation will begin which is targeted for end of next week (i.e. by 09/12).

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.
