Construction season comes to Trumbull Campus
Posted May. 13, 2010
A sure sign that spring has sprung is the arrival of orange barrels along the roadways. And so it is at Kent State University at Trumbull as well, as the end of spring semester signals the beginning of our construction and renovation projects.
Beginning Monday, May 17, 2010, a number of projects begin in earnest at Kent State Trumbull, including:
Restrooms - Eight (8) restrooms will close so complete demolition can begin. These restrooms include those located in the Library area, first floor computer lab area and second floor science lab area. In their absence, the newly remodeled restrooms in the commons area will be open for use. The estimated completion date for these restrooms is August 15.
Classroom/Administration Building lobby area - The hand railing, ceiling and lighting located in the lobby/commons area of the Classroom/Administration Building will be removed and replaced with new fixtures and railings that match the 2009 remodeling of the other staircase in the same building. Signage rerouting foot traffic will be in place as needed. The estimated completion date is August 15.
Elevator out of service - The elevator in the commons area will be out of service for approximately six (6) weeks for the removal and rebuild of the elevator riser jack.
Link "facelift" - The Link will begin to get its facelift as the painters are scheduled to arrive. All of the classrooms and hallways will be painted over a four to six week period.
In late May, contactors will begin to remove and replace many of the old and worn storefront glass door entryways with new energy efficient replacements.
Please remember, as with any construction project, there is going to be noise during the demolition phase and every attempt will be made to try and get as much done prior to the start of intersession classes.
Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding as we enter another summer of remodeling with noise, dust and some (but hopefully small) inconvenience. In the end it will all be worth it when the fall semester arrives and we can show off our many new areas!
