Urgent repairs originally estimated in an amount of $6 million are needed as part of the Hines Academic Center Structural Improvements project. The project will include rebuilding the exterior facade of one side of the building and making associated structural repairs.  The project is on the current CIP.

Status:  With the assistance of Wiss, Janney Elstner Associates, Inc., it was determined that the fa├žade movement was due to water intrusion, not structural issues as was first thought.  The cost of this project is now estimated at roughly $1 million. The final scope of work, with a more accurate construction cost estimate, will be determined in fall 2018.

Next Milestone:  The next milestone will be the production of Construction Documents.
