It has been an exciting couple of weeks on campus!

St. Joseph’s Building is underway in the preparation phase of construction. In Aquinas, all soft demo is just about completed, and construction preparation will then begin.  

This past Saturday, May 18,  both the north and south walls of the theater were removed, along with the steel roof beams. This has been an incredible process, it is like taking a walk through construction history! Some of the walls were built with materials you just don’t see anymore.

Over the next few days, the construction schedule is being adjusted to support the Finals schedule as well as Commencement Ceremonies.

    May 17, 2019: Pre-Construction Continues

We are currently in construction pre-work, which means the interiors of buildings are being prepared for infrastructure upgrades. Pre-work will continue through this weekend. Our construction partners will be mindful of finals and keep work to a minimum next week while school is in session. No loud, noisy or disruptive work will be done during the school day to ensure students have a quiet place to study and take their final exams.

  • May 2019: Pre-Construction Begins
We are currently in construction pre-work, which means the interiors of buildings are being prepared for infrastructure upgrades. Yesterday our construction crew encountered a structural issue and immediately responded to ensure the construction site remained safe and secure. I am happy to report they were able to completely secure this structural issue within 5 minutes with minimal effect to the exterior of the building.
Additionally, a section of the theater roof became unstable and had to be removed. After meeting with our Structural Engineers, and larger construction team, it has been decided that for safety reasons we need to bring down the remaining exterior structure of the Theater. We have worked out a plan with our construction partner to do this beginning at 2:30 pm every afternoon for the remainder of this week. We will continue to work on the inside of the building, hauling debris during the school day.
All regulations and codes have been and will continue to be followed. All required disciplines have been and will continue to be onsite for demo work.
