Renovation Update Week June 1, 2015

The following is a list of activities that were performed on the Lafferre Hall renovation project and the noise implications that may result for the week June 1, 2015:

  1. Fencing will be complete on the North side of Lafferre Hall and in the McDavid Hall Parking Lot
    • Noise Implications: Noise will be minimal.
  2. A concrete patch will be placed on the sidewalk next to Sixth Street. This is anticipated to be complete on Monday
    • Noise Implications: A concrete truck will be present onsite.
  3. Pipe installation will begin in the penthouse on the 2009 addition and through the third floor of both the 2009 and 1935.
    • Noise implications: Holes in the concrete floor of the penthouse will be drilled. These holes will affect the Easternmost men’s restroom on the third floor of the 2009 building. Additional noise will be created to install pipe supports in the concrete deck above the third floor. These supports will extend through the hallway located North of the men’s restroom.
  4. Pipe installation will begin on the first and second floor of the 1991 addition through the main hallway just outside of the elevator. This pipe installation will be performed not only in the hallway, but also in 2-3 rooms north of the elevator.
    • Noise Implications: Holes will need to be drilled through concrete beams and supports will need to be installed into the concrete deck.
  5. Outages are scheduled to relocate large mechanical pipes outside of Greg Emanuel’s office (C2650) and into the computer lab located to the south of his office.
    • Noise Implications: There will be cutting and welding associated with this work. Public access will be minimal to minimize risk of injury. This will be a noisy and inconvenient process that should span Monday-Wednesday of next week.
  6. Duct work will be installed in the first floor North hallway in the 1958 building.
    • Noise Implications: Power tools will be utilized to complete this work. Anchors and supports will need to be driven into the concrete ceilings.
  7. Drywall Partitions will be continue to be installed around the perimeter of the construction area.
    • Noise Implications: Power tools will be utilized to install anchors and supports into the concrete floor and concrete deck above.
  8. Fire alarm zones and devices are being relocated and rewired to various areas within the buildings remaining active. Conduit is being installed to tie the new fire alarm panels to the main fire alarm panel in the 2009 building and to connect the new and existing devices to the newly installed fire alarm zone modules.
    • Noise Implications: Throughout the week there will be drilling of supports into the concrete deck and possibly through concrete beams to install the conduits. This will occur in both the 1991 building basement and throughout the 1958 and 2009 buildings. Multiple areas will be impacted.
  9. New data cables will be installed from the new telecommunications closet in the hallway between the 1893 and 1935 buildings to the various data ports scattered throughout the 1893 building. All floors on the 1893 building will be impacted.
    • Noise Implications: Noise should be minimal. Some conduits will be required to be anchored into the concrete decks. Workers entering rooms to complete the cable pulls will be the larger inconvenience associated with this work.
  10. Selective demolition is ongoing in the three-story 1935 building.
    • Noise Implications: Interior noise will be isolated to this particular building. However, dumpster trucks will be coming in and out of the project site and material will be thrown into these dumpsters. The impact of misc. material into the dumpsters may cause a disturbance.

Renovation Update Week June 8, 2015

The following is a list of activities that were performed on the Lafferre Hall renovation project and the noise implications that may result for the week June 8, 2015:

  1. New data cables will be pulled to all of the data ports located throughout all of the floors in the 1893 building (which is the building where Mechanical Engineering is located). Every room that contains a data outlet for phones, computers, etc. will see some activity. Nothing will be shut down. This is only bringing new cables into the room.
  2. Additional work on the temporary walls currently erected on the first and second floors located close to the Dean’s office and the Engineering Building Library on the West end of the building and on the second and third floors in the 1893 building on the East end of the building will be performed.
    • Noise Implications: Drilling noises and some hammering will be heard. This will most likely carry on throughout the week.
  3. Electrical, HVAC, and plumbing renovations are being performed in rooms W2061, W2060, W2064, and W2066.
    • Noise Implications: Penetrations through the block walls will need to be made and will result in loud hammering. The counter tops that are currently in W2066 will be removed and moved around the room. Some materials will need be brought up and down the elevator located at the tops of the stairwell landings located off of 6th Street. High traffic may result at times.
  4. HVAC ductwork and a fan is being installed on the roof above the second floor rooms containing room numbers W206# and W207# as well as above the third floor of the building containing room numbers W322#
    • Noise Implications: People will be walking and working on the roof above the room numbers listed.
  5. Pipe will be installed from the mechanical penthouse above the third floor of the new addition into the third floor of the construction area. This will affect the men’s restroom on the third floor of the new addition and the surrounding hallways. HVAC ductwork will also be removed from above the ceiling in the hallway outside of this restroom.
    • Noise implications: Holes will need to be cut into the concrete above the men’s restroom. Pipe will then be installed from the bathroom to the North into the construction area. The ceiling will be removed and cutting HVAC duct will be performed.
  6. Conduits will be cut in the main corridor where the temporary walls are located.
    • Noise Implications: Cutting and material moving will occur.
  7. Air lines and water lines located above the ceiling to the North of room C1244 have been requested to be taken out of service for a short time frame.
    • Noise Implications: These lines will be cut and a cap will be placed on them. Cutting and welding will be performed. Due to the high volume of work required in this area, some disturbances may result.
  8. Selective demolition is on-going in the 3 story 1935 building (which is the building where Industrial and Nuclear Engineering were located).
    • Noise Implications: Interior noise will be isolated to this particular building. However, dumpster trucks will be coming in and out of the project site and material will be thrown into these dumpsters. The impact of misc. material into the dumpsters may cause a disturbance.
  9. A deionized water line outage on Wednesday. It will affect the 2009 building supply of deionized water for the day. The associated pipe installation will involve drilling a hole in the concrete floor outside of W2060 into the hallway below. Additional plumbing related outages have been requested for the 2009 building but have not yet been confirmed.

Renovation Update Week June 15, 2015

The following is a list of activities that were performed on the Lafferre Hall renovation project and the noise implications that may result for the week June 15, 2015:

  1. On Monday, we will begin flipping electrical breakers to off within the construction area. During this process, it is possible that rooms outside the construction area may be affected. If this happens (lights go out, outlets no longer work, etc.), we ask that occupants contact the College of Engineering (COE), which will then contact us immediately.
  2. On Monday, we will perform work in the 2009 mechanical Penthouse and around the third floor men’s restroom in the 2009 building. We will be removing duct work from this area.
    • Impact: Work will be performed in the hallway and men’s restroom on the third floor, which will cause inconveniences to occupants.
  3. On Tuesday, a 1 hour outage is planned for an electrical panel located in Room W1077. The exact time of the outage will be communicated Monday to the COE.
    • Impact: Room W1077 will see activity during this hour. We do not know what rooms/areas will be affected when this panel is turned off. We request patience during this time as we will be working to turn the power back on as quickly as we can.
  4. On Monday and Tuesday, we will work on water pipes on the first and second floor in the area around the elevator located outside  the Engineering Library. A water outage lasting a few hours will be required Tuesday.
    • Impact: Work will be in Rooms W1021, W2001C and W2001D. Sinks and other water sources near these rooms will be affected during the outage.
