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. 20 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.
Workers almost have completed the concrete seats and curbs and will begin to add soil to the bottom of the planned Geology Lawn in preparation for planting the grass.
They will turn their attention to the arroyos and acequia water channels around the lhakhang, the Bhutanese cultural center, as well as begin rough grading of the ground around the lhakhang and the Fox Fine Arts Center.
