From: Susan Welch

Burrowes colleagues and others interested in the Burrowes project:

Below are some photos taken during the last week or so inside and outside Burrowes.  The dark, dingy ones are from the subbasement where workers are taking three foot out of the floor to make the floor-ceiling height larger for the new HVAC and other mechanical equipment that will be installed.

Chris Hort, our facilities manager, reports that the demolition work has been progressing nicely and the site utility work (telecom and electrical ductbank runs) into the building is also on track.  The majority of the mall area will remain fenced off as it is now until this utility work is done.  Once completed, the grass will be replanted and the area cleaned up in prep for start of Fall semester.  The fencing will get pulled back to just the perimeter of Burrowes in early August.

The overall project schedule remains on track.  If you have any project specific questions, please let Chris know (; 863-8328).

With best wishes, Susan
