In the coming weeks, the university will host three town hall meetings to inform the public about approaching campus construction projects. The first hearing will feature prospective plans for the future interdisciplinary building. The remaining two will cover projects scheduled to take place over the summer.
These projects will begin in mid-May and are scheduled for completion by late August. Both will take place on or near Garden Avenue.
An electrical customer substation will be installed east of the parking garage. This will involve digging of trenches and installation of manholes on campus.
The concurrent project will be the installation of two 600-ton chillers and a cooling tower in the East Academic Building.
Sessions for these projects will be held on Wednesday, April 30 in the Community Music School Auditorium. The substation session will take place at 3:00 p.m., and the chillers and cooling tower will be covered at 6:00 p.m.
The town hall meeting regarding plans for the upcoming interdisciplinary building will be held on Thursday, April 24 in Winifred Moore Auditorium from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. Two architects who have been working on the project will present their conceptions of the building and open up the floor for discussion.
