We are preparing to pour the slab on grade concrete in the basement throughout the week of August 21, 2017. Due to the high temperatures this time of year, the concrete pours will be commence at 6:00 AM to facilitate a quality finish and avoid complications with the hot weather. As our mass excavation moves north towards College Street, heavy truck traffic will continue.
The tower crane has been occupied with the completion of the masonry bearing walls and erection of the lower level structural steel.
The renovation of the Recital Hall and Instrument Rehearsal space in Burke Hall will be complete to accommodate the return of students. We are finishing the hard wood floor on the recital stage and completing the state-of-the-art theatrical lighting system. The new carpet, reupholstered seating, and a fresh coat of paint have really enhanced the appearance of the performance spaces in Burke Hall.
