South Campus remodel begins

The South Campus Building A remodel has begun! The contractor will complete the majority of demolition and wall framing within the first two weeks of the project. The common wall between the center core area and the hall on the administration side of the building will be removed shortly thereafter.

Please note, a portion of the parking lot on the south side of Building A is designated for contractor use, and other areas both inside and outside of the building will be blocked off for their use.
Marty Mattes, director of facilities and operations, notes that safety is paramount for college staff, students and visitors as well as for the contractors. He advises staff to refrain from entering work zones and to maintain a clear distance from the work to ensure everyone’s safety.
"There will be construction-related noise that may infiltrate adjacent areas over the course of the project," Marty said. "The contractor will take due care to minimize operational disruption to the college as the work schedule allows."
If you have any questions or concerns about the South Campus Building A remodel, please contact Marty at x7156.
