Campus infrastructure project to begin in May

Brace yourselves. The interior of campus will become quite the noisy construction zone as soon as commencement is over next month, according to Brian Swope, assistant director of the Office of Design and Construction. Some parking lots will be temporarily closed and pedestrian routes diverted.

But when the project to update and revitalize the utility infrastructure is complete, the rewards will be great in terms of lower energy consumption, upgraded and air-conditioned classrooms, and preparation for planned building renovations. The project is essential to the University's sustainability goals and will allow it to move closer to achieving carbon neutrality.

A major goal of the infrastructure project is to install a new, 1,700-ton chiller tower on top of the existing Centrex Building that will provide chilled water to cool most of the buildings in the surrounding area, including Hanna, Moseley, South, McFall, Williams and Founders halls, then on to Shatzel Hall. The first phase of the project begins in early May and is to be completed by Aug. 7. It will allow the renovation of South Hall, the new home for the School of Media and Communication, to progress.
