The Clarion University Office of Finance and Administration has provided an update on the major construction projects underway at Clarion University.
Studs are being installed throughout the building for inside walls and the stairs have been installed. All of the scaffolding is gone on all elevations. Most of the kitchen equipment has been purchased and electrical connections are ready for installation.
Pedestrian/vehicular traffic and safety: One-way traffic is still in effect for the roadway between Carrier and the new dining-hall. Do not drive east on this roadway until completion of the new building allows two-way traffic again.
Construction started this week on the bus turnout, which will allow safe drop off and pick up of passengers. Brick is being placed on the side facing Pierce Science and installation of the roof is continuing.
The electrical outage on July 19 brought full electrical power to Dorm #4. Work continued on each of the dorms on all fronts with good progress made on the exterior of Building #4, facing Chandler.
The construction crew has now moved to bank tapering. This project is currently ahead of schedule.
More information about construction can be found in the minutes of the regular meetings of the Facilities Planning Committee and Parking Committee, provided below:
