Friday Construcition Update

Mon, 01/20/2014 - 10:23am

Student Experience Center (SEC):

  • Day two after crane arrival and steel is standing!
  • Steel schedule shows 4th Floor going up before Spring Break (March 14th).
  • Concrete slab crew worked over 22 hours on New Year’s Eve to finish that slab.
  • Dry stack for review of brick and mortar is done.
  • Value Engineering (VE) efforts to save money in the Plaza bench are not bearing fruit – shortening the bench an option?
  • Craft Center list needs vetting as to who owns moving, hook-up.  Memorial Union will partner with Andersen to make that list.
  • Media integration design package 90% complete and will be coming end of January.
  • Meeting next week with the artist for building art.
  • SEC job site is fed off the new electrical service so any Memorial Union repair shutdown requests in the near future should not affect the job site.


Memorial Union East:

  • Roof level work begins this week.
  • Slab pours towards the end of January.
  • Soft demolition complete by end of the week
  • Electrical room conduit runs beginning this week.
  • Generator trenching began today.
  • Ballroom emergency access via NW door shut until trenching finishes on January 27th.
  • If you review prints, be aware that there are ASI’s (Architectural Supplemental Instructions) that may update those plans.  Current ASI’s include: (ADA guidelines, Site salvaged furniture, Closets in restrooms, Broadcast clarifications, Glass art wall at event space, Kitchen equipment in North Porch Café).
  • To reiterate, design modification time frame for our re-thinking of current design is closed.  Product submittable list is being reviewed, is very long, and will lock in the product variables to give the last layer of design detail to the architect to deliver to the contractor for installation according to schedule.
  • We should be able to review the phased plan for Shop, Office, Ramp, Hallway, Mechanical Room and Restrooms when the last of the submittable are reviewed.  I will ask for a meeting towards the end of January.
