Construction Update May 17 2018
Work continues on the Sverdrup Building this week.

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

Sverdrup Building:

  • The heat loop on the HVAC system in Sverdrup will be shut down on Friday, May 18, which could cause parts of the building to be cooler than normal. It is recommended that anyone working in the building bring a sweater to work, in case your office or work area is one of those affected. A second shut down of the heat loop for additional building work may be scheduled in the next two weeks. A date for that work is still pending.
  • A portion of the atrium corridor in front of the west elevator will be closed for several hours Friday, May 18, so that overhead mechanical work can be conducted. This will require the closure of the west elevator. This work will not impact access to any of the offices near the elevator on the second floor. The east elevator will not be affected by this work. Those who need elevator access to the second floor will need to either use the stairs or the east elevator.  Once the work is completed, the west elevator will reopen.
  • The installation of structural steel for new stairs on the west end of the atrium will continue through early June. 
  • Concrete work on the north elevation of the east end is expected to be completed in the next few days.
  • Masonry work on the exterior of the building should be completed by the end of the month.
  • Storefront glazing at the north entrances on the west side and on the south entrances will be completed by the end of the month.
  • REMINDER: Building materials and equipment deliveries to the building will continue this month and throughout the months of June and July. Three handicap parking spaces at Lot F located between the Visual Arts Building and Sverdrup Hall are being temporarily used for construction deliveries and material lay down space to reduce construction traffic along Bend Bend Blvd. These parking spaces will be restored after the Sverdrup Hall Project is completed.
