Posted by Admin on July 16, 2015 in News, WMLC, Notices and Alerts, Campus Development

1.  Roof Membrane and Exterior Walls

Roof work (including skylight installation) and installation of exterior siding is weather dependent and has been proceeding.  Installation of exterior windows is nearing completion.  Only the front entrance remains.  Roof work, front entrance glazing and installation of exterior wall system will continue over the next few weeks.

2.  Wall Partitions

Interior partitions, including gypsum board is nearing completion.  Interior painting has started.  Interior glazing and doors will begin shortly.   

3.  Mechanical/Electrical Work

Plumbing, heating, ventilation and electrical installations continue.

4.  Landscaping

Rough grading has begun.  Light bases, curbs and sidewalks will begin shortly.  There may be a need to install a cable under Castine Way (the driveway to the Dunn Lot).  If this occurs Bird will ensure the driveway remains active and traffic control is in place.  A separate general notice will be issued if the cable installation is required.


For any issues that may arise during the course of this work, please contact Director of Capital Projects, Alex Walker at 902-494-1071.
