The slab foundations have been poured and the $23 million student housing project on the north side of campus is poised to go vertical. Framing is planned to start the week of Oct. 27 on the first floor of the first building and contractors plan to progress to the other two buildings in succession.
Work on the first 30 feet of the entrance to the 6.2-acre job site was completed recently so crews will move on to the rest of the path toward the complex.
Grass will be planted in the Geology Green in front of the Geological Sciences Building Oct. 25-26. Workers also are scheduled to set up decorative boulders, a decomposed granite pathway and a water-channeling acequia around the green about the same time.
Crews will continue to pour a concrete path that will connect the Geological Sciences Building and the Magoffin Auditorium. It will be accented with additional decomposed granite. That work should be completed by mid-November.
