Construction Update Aug 26 2016
A rendering of what the Interdisciplinary Science Building will look like when 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:

The sidewalk that leads to the book store and the elevator entrance of the parking garage will be fully restored by next week, as crews complete the installation of a new storm water line as part of the garage expansion project. The storm water work will continue on the site of the former Parking Lot O through mid-September. Once all the new storm water pipes are installed, crews will begin piers drilling – the drilling of large shafts that will help anchor the building. The garage project is on schedule to have pre-cast walls installation start in mid-October.

At the site of the ISB, construction crews are preparing to pour concrete for Level 1 Slab on Metal Deck Area A (north wing) of the building.  That work is expected to start Sept. 1 and last through Sept. 5.  Those who park in Lot K should be prepared for minor delays entering and exiting the lot as concrete trucks arrive at the site.

In other ISB progress:

  • The steel erection continues at Level 0 (the lowest level of the building). It is expected to be completed by the end of the month.
  • The backfill of the Level 0 foundation will start on Aug. 26 and is expected to be completed by Sept. 2.  Crews also hope to complete the waterproofing of the Level 0 foundation today.
  • Three drilled piers need to be placed in the backfill area.  That work is expected to start Aug. 30 and finish the next day.
  • Work crews will install foundation walls along the Level 0 backfill area starting Sept. 7 and lasting through Sept. 12.
