Since our last update in September, great strides have been made on the renovation and expansion of Glass Hall.
Robert Gourley Student Success Center
The interior structure of the Robert Gourley Student Success Center is becoming more apparent each day as the internal framing is being completed. In addition, a majority of the mechanical systems, electrical conduit, plumbing and fire suppression piping has been installed. In the coming weeks, loads of roofing materials will be delivered and installed on the already completed base layer of the roof.
On the exterior, framing is in place for the zinc panels that will accent the glass walls on the north and south sides of the building. The framing for the glass walls and the skylight in the atrium will come together later this spring. Once the building is considered “weather tight” drywall and other finishes will be installed.
Renovation of the existing space
On the inside of Glass Hall, the new vending area has been completed and is open on the north side of the building. Demolition has begun on the 2nd floor to make way for new office configurations. The SE stairwell has been removed in preparation to connect the existing Glass Hall building with the Student Success Center. Finally, the glass panels have been installed on both the north and south side of the building, so there is a seamless transition between the existing building and the Student Success Center.
During the summer of 2017, Glass Hall will close for a period of time to allow for the completion of the project. Additional details about the closure will be publicized as they become available.
The remainder of the Terrazzo floors will be installed on the 1st floor, the remaining stairwells and entrances will be renovated, and updates to cabinets and countertops in departmental offices will be made. Additionally the final furniture will be installed in the two buildings. Outside, landscaping and a fire lane will be installed.
