Crews to Cut through First-Floor Wall of EAB during Holiday Break

December 21, 2016

When students, faculty, and staff return from the holiday break, Room 141 in the East Academic Building (EAB) will no longer exist. Instead, there will be a temporary wall where the door used to be. Behind that wall, work crews will be building the new connecting corridor that will link the EAB to the new Interdisciplinary Science Building. That new connection will be opened up immediately after the completion of the ISB, turning Room 141 – one of the least used spaces in the EAB – into Room 151 – one of the busiest spaces in the building.

Work on the parking garage will reach the halfway mark before the holiday break. During the break, crews on that project will complete some work that would normally be very noisy and therefore disruptive to the campus. Over at the Interdisciplinary Science Building, work crews are closer to finishing the framing of the interior walls and are preparing to install drywall.

The last steel girder will be placed in the ISB next week while construction crews shift to framing walls and doors and installing duct work and pipes. Over at the garage, one corner is starting to actually resemble a garage. Work crews have finished the beams for one column of the structure and are close to finishing the foundation on one side of the building.
