Renovation of Hass-Darr Hall, West Plains Campus

Galvanized angle and metal studs are being installed on the exterior wall.  Steel erection continues at the addition.  Portions of the interior slab are being replaced.


Renovation, Hill Hall

Mark Wheeler, Project Manager

Focused demolition efforts continue on the frist floor with the removal of the building’s main HVAC and electrical systems.  Excavation occurs inside and outside the building to allow for plumbing connections. The concrete floor topping slabs have been poured back at floors two and three.  A survey of the fourth floor is still underway as the existing infill’s floor slab is severely out of level.  The design team continues to investigate solutions for remediation of this issue.  Structural assessments are complete for the wood roof trusses.  Every truss has received water damage causing rotting.  All roof trusses will need to be modified to repair the damage.  The contractor is proceeding with this work.

A pre-construction meeting is planned for later this month. The contractor is currently preparing equipment submittals. The JOCS contractor has submitted a workplan for supplemental work required for the new equipment.
