The Clarion University Office of Finance and Administration has provided an update on the major construction projects underway at Clarion University.
The head wall has been poured at the end of the eight-foot culvert extension, and the box outlet is being formed. While work is taking place, the stream is being diverted around the work area.
Much of the work here has moved indoors, roof, wall and windows having been substantially completed. Current projects include HVAC duct work and the coffee bar.
Pedestrian/vehicular traffic and safety: construction vehicles will also be entering and leaving the job site to transport materials. Caution should be used near the jobsite.
The main part of the roof on the east section (toward Tippin) is nearing completion. The masonry contractor is on site, has begun to install scaffolding and is planning on starting the brick install on the east section exterior walls. Interior work continues.
This past week the connection to the campus utilities moved ahead with the installation of the steam and electrical manholes. Interior and exterior progress was made on all fronts.
Other Pedestrian/Vehicular traffic and safety issues: for June, Orientation will now be using Lot H and Lot 6 for parking on Tuesday and Thursday. Employees currently parking in Lot H should park in Lot 5 on Tuesday and Thursday.
More information about construction can be found in the minutes of the regular meetings of the Facilities Planning Committee and Parking Committee, provided below:
