Rush Rhees Library

A roofing project will take place at Rush Rhees Library from May 27 to Aug. 19.

Beginning July 7, the final flood coat and new gravel installation will begin on all roof levels.  There are sometimes strong odors associated with the work on very hot and humid days, which will especially effect offices within the courtyard area of the building.  The process will also be very loud.

For questions, contact Christina Goodermote at 732-3640.


Wallis Hall

From July 7 to 31, construction will take place at the main entrance to Wallis Hall. The work involves installing new granite steps, cleaning existing granite steps, installing new brick pavers, removing and replacing a concrete landing, installing new handrail, and installing new exterior lights near the sidewalk.  Some demolition and excavation work will be required.

During the work, the main entrance will be closed and enclosed with chain link fencing.  A portion of sidewalk in front of Wallis Hall may be closed while work is taking place.  Pedestrian traffic will be relocated to nearby crosswalks as required during these times.  The noisiest and most disruptive work is generally planned to occur between 6 and 9 a.m. or on weekends.

Contact Jonathan McCann at 353-0069 with any questions.





Gavett Hall

On Monday, May 19, work began on the renovation of Gavett 202 classroom.  A dumpster is  placed adjacent to the building; noise and dust will be created that is internal to the building. The corridor in Gavett on the second floor will remain open.

Call Jennifer Baldwin at 794-8163 with any questions.


Bausch & Lomb Hall

From July 7 to 25,  from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., workers will install chilled water mains from Bausch and Lomb Hall. Work will move from the building’s loading dock toward Intercampus Drive.

New Golisano Children’s Hospital Tower

The new $145-million Golisano Children’s Hospital tower, to be located on Crittenden Boulevard and attached to the Medical Center and Strong Memorial Hospital, will be eight floors and approximately 245,000 square feet of space dedicated to children and their families. When the new hospital opens in 2015, private rooms and a greatly expanded Neonatal Intensive Care Unit will provide our families with much-needed privacy and will enhance infection control efforts.

Read more about the impact of ongoing construction of the new Golisano Children’s Hospital.

Saturday work
To make up for time lost during the winter on the building exterior of the hospital, Saturday work will continue through the end of July.  The work will mainly be brick masonry.  Loud work (saws, back-up alarms, etc.) will not start until 9 a.m. and will stop by 4 p.m..
