Construction Update August 19 2016
A rendering of what the Parking Garage will look like after the expansion project is completed

This is a regular update of the construction work for the Interdisciplinary Science Building (ISB) and the Parking Garage expansion on the home campus of Webster University in Webster Groves, Missouri:

A construction camera has been set up at the site of the parking garage expansion project. It is online and its stream can be viewed at Refresh the web page to see a new image.

The book store and the elevator entrance of the parking garage will remain open while crews dig a trench on the north side of the parking garage to install a new storm water line. A pedestrian detour is in place to access the book store and garage. The work is expected to be completed by the end of next week. Currently, work crews have blocked access to a dozen parking spaces in front of the book store as part of the same storm water project. Those parking spaces are expected to be reopened early next week.

The lighting modification project that closed off a handful of parking spaces in Parking Lot J and on the south end of the Visual Arts Studio has been completed. The parking spaces are all accessible again.

  • The erection of structural steel at the ISB has begun at Level 0 (the lowest level). That phase of the project is expected to finish Aug. 25. During this time, those who park in Lot K should be aware of an increase in truck traffic while the structural steel is being delivered and erected and should consider that there could be minor delays entering or exiting the lot.
  • The removal of the stairs on the north side of the EAB has been completed and a temporary egress (to the east side of the building) has been established as a temporary replacement.
  • Waterproofing of the foundation at Level 0 of the ISB is scheduled to be completed Aug. 26.
  • The replacement of landscaping in Rain Garden A will commence in September of 2016 during cooler temperatures. The mulch currently in place is temporary to prevent soil erosion.
