Projects in Progress

Major Exterior Structural Repairs – Life Sciences Building Facade
Work began in early July on major exterior structural repairs to the Life Sciences Building to prevent the eventual collapse of connecting masonry ribs.  Fifty masonry panels are being removed – 30 on the south side that face the center of campus and 20 on the north side that face the Career Technology Center.  Each weighs approximately 8,000 pounds.  The masonry panels were designed to provide shade from the sun; they will be replaced with a modern exterior façade system that will more effectively serve this purpose.

Student Collaboration Area in the Life Sciences Building
The Life Sciences Building and many other campus buildings lack adequate, modern space outside the classroom for students to work both collaboratively and independently, and this issue will be addressed across campus through a number of millage projects.  The first of these is an addition to the west side of the Life Sciences Building, which includes the installation of permanent seating areas and team work rooms where students can gather, complete with flexible furniture, ample technology, acoustics and lighting designed with collaboration in mind, vending area and more. Construction is set to begin this summer. Student Collaboration Area Architectural Drawings
