Dana Hall Renovation

Update for the two weeks beginning April 15 and 22, 2019

Dana Hall Renovations

Extensive renovations are underway for a new academic building (located in the former Dana Hall building) at the north end of campus. The new space will provide additional faculty offices teaching and conference spaces, and a graduate student lounge and small grab-and-go café with informal lounge/seating area on the lower level. The project will also provide more pedestrian access between the core and north end of campus.

What's Happening

  • Delivery and erection of steel continues, resulting in hammer drill activity.
  • Concrete core shear walls will continue to be be poured within the Dana footprint and for the Remsen EM wing floors this week.
  • Site work to bring the grading up on south side of Dana will continue.
  • The team will also continue to backfill the retaining wall connecting Dana and Remsen
  • Tube steel installation and light gauge framing can be noticed along Dana's exterior in the next few weeks.

What to Expect

  • Fencing and signage will be modified as needed.
  • Regular work hours are Monday – Friday, starting at 7 a.m., with loud work starting no earlier than 7:30 a.m.
  • Construction vehicles will enter the site from College Street, and exit under the Kellogg/Remsen bridge to the intersection of College and Park Streets.
  • Noisy demolition work will occur through the first week in February.
  • Frozen soil digging and tamping will also take place in support of backfilling the permanent storm and sanitary connections near Kellogg.
