Construction Update March 15, 2018

This is a regular update of the construction work on the home campus of Webster University in Webster Groves, Missouri:

Sverdrup Building:

  • The northwest entrance (Big Bend side) will continue to be temporarily closed through this weekend (end of Spring Break). Access to the elevator will be periodically closed during this time but will be open after 6 p.m. for those who need building access during off-hours. Access to the elevator will be restored by March 19. Those who need an elevator to access the second floor during the closures can use the east elevator, which will be accessible until 6 p.m. each night.
  • Workers are currently removing the existing glass entrances on the north (Big Bend) and south (Quad) sides the building. The work is expected to continue through next week. Temporary building enclosures are being built to protect the interior of the building. New glass entrances will be installed through the end of March. 
  • Significant masonry work on the south side (the Quad side) will start later next week through the end of the month. The structure will need to be shored up and some brickwork will be removed, while crews reshape the entrances to the building. Work on the north side (Big Bend side) will start later this month. 
  • Concrete will be placed to infill the first-floor electrical trenches that were excavated this week. This work will require delivery of concrete through the northwest entrance. The work will take place March 15th and 16th.
  • During the week of March 19, the interior painting will start. This could create an odor. Workers will try to keep doors and windows open to increase air circulation, weather permitting. 
  • During the week of March 26, interior concrete work will occur. This work can sometimes become noisy. 
  • The doors to the new classrooms, labs, and offices will be framed starting the week of March 19 through the end of the month. 
  • During the week of March 19th, Workers will install the ceiling system of the Media Commons. This work may be noisy.
  • Concrete will be placed for the south side (Quad) entrance between March 22nd and March 28th.
  • Concrete will be placed for the north side (Big Bend) entrances between March 29th and April 4th.
