A printable version of our Weekly Project Updates is available.

Classroom Addition, McQueary Family Health Sciences Hall

Michael Mardis, Project Manager

A mockup has been received for the additional guardrail framing. Awaiting remaining furniture.  There have been delays due to a foam shortage.  The glass installation will commence June 14. The fire alarm work is wrapping up. Close-out documents are nearly complete.

New Residence Hall

Bruce Colony, Project Manager

An agreement with a general works contractor has been completed and will begin work next week. Rough-in on the 7th level continues.  Drywall installation is in progress. The parapet cap and downspouts are installed on the courtyard exterior walls, which will eliminate the water intrusion at that level and allow the remediation process to move forward. Design modifications continue to be investigated on the stair towers to improve their functionality and ease of construction. Preparation of the parking level exterior for finishes continues on the south elevation. Masonry punch list corrections are being finalized this week. Exterior door installation will begin next week beginning with the residential levels at all three stair towers; this is the final step toward a fully enclosed building envelope. Mandatory project meetings for all subcontractors and vendors will begin next week and plans for the commissioning of the 5th floor mechanical systems will begin as well.

Dining Center Infill, New Residence Hall

Bruce Colony, Project Manager

This project will resume soon as the engineering of the vent shaft light gauge framing is complete and the coordination for the installation of the welded duct is complete.

Building 4 Expansion, Jordan Valley Innovation Center

Laura Derrick, Project Manager

Piers installation is complete. Grade beam and elevator excavation work continues. Issues with the new building floor-to-floor elevation have caused steel framing to be delayed.  These issues are being addressed.

SPS Agricultural Magnet School, Darr Agricultural Center

Shanon Mitchell, Project Manager

Structural steel deliveries have continued and almost all steel is now on site.  Steel erection will resume and continue next week.  Precast tops are installed at the greenhouse and the entrance stone veneer wing walls. The stone veneer has also been washed and caulked.  Footings for the dumpster pad will be poured this week and CMU block will be laid next week.  Next week should consist of steel erection, light pole bases and conduit, and concrete slab at the transformer.  Modifications will occur to the drivelane just north of Journagan Drive for the water that is ponding along the south end of the drivelane.  Ground water is filling this area making it impassable.  The industry is seeing many material delays.  Metal Studs are not scheduled to ship until the first week in July.  Contractors are communicating to get materials secured and delivered to the jobsite as quickly as possible.  Follow this link to the latest video of this project.

Outdoor Performin g Arts Pavilion, Tent Theatre

Michael Mardis, Project Manager

Unsuitable soils have been removed and new engineered gravel base has been installed.  The stagehouse foundation work has commenced. Pouring final portion of the sidewalk along Craig Hall.  Sidewalk will reopen this week. Work is underway for the storm water piping. The stagehouse under slab electrical pathways are being installed. Electrical work in the basement of Craig Hall continues. Work continues on the selection and details for removable tents and pop-up banners. The Jason Rhea memorial meeting was held on May 26.  The next meeting is tentatively scheduled for July 8. 

Gymnasium Floor Replacement, Foster Recreation Center

Michael Mardis, Project Manager

The existing subfloor is prepped and ready for maple floor installation.  Humidity levels are currently too high for the installation.  The new humidity control valve arrived this week. Floor installation will be delayed a week to allow time for the HVAC system to remove humidity from the space.

First Floor Renovation for the Multicultural Resource Center and Office of Student Engagement, Plaster Student Union                

Adam Shuler, Project Manager

In the new MRC space, all of the new walls have been framed and the electrical rough-in is almost complete. The new domestic water lines are being installed and required an overnight shutdown of water to the building earlier this week. In the new OSE space, the contractor has laid out the new walls and ductwork. Metal studs are on-site, and framing will begin soon.
