Renovation, Hill Hall

Mark Wheeler, Project Manager

On the first floor under slab rough-in is virtually complete allowing concrete placement to occur across the 1st floor.  Existing exterior louvers are currently being removed and will be replaced with window systems.  On the second floor and third floors fire suppression lines, mechanical duct work, electrical rough-in, and plumbing rough-in all continue.  Insulating stud walls and sheetrock installation has begun at the third floor.  Main lines for mechanical duct work are currently being installed along with main electrical runs, conduit and J-boxes.  Holes are being cored in the floor slabs allowing for piping to run between floors allowing the installation of toilet carriers and plumbing rough-in.  At the fourth floor modifications to the existing roof trusses continue by adding steel supports.  Once this is complete stud framing will occur.  Re-sealing of the gutters will occur over the next several weeks as weather allows.
