Construction Projects

What's Happening in the Next Several Weeks:

Integrative Genomics Building: The 100% CD design documents were completed in May. The documents were provided to the CM/GC, who currently has the project out to bid. The Independent Project Review (IPR) has been scheduled for mid-July. Construction is anticipated to commence in August 2016.

Old Town Demolition: Demolition of the superstructures of Buildings 5, 16, and 16A is complete, as is the recycling and disposal of the resulting debris. The main retaining wall on the east side of Building 5 has been reinforced, and the foundations, slabs, and utilities under the building have been removed. Installation of a new retaining wall north of Building 5 continues along with the work to relocate the local groundwater treatment system. Upcoming field work will include removal of slab, utilities, and contaminated soil of the former Building 5 waste processing yard. The PCB cleanup application package for Buildings 52 and 52A, and its amendment for Buildings 16 and 16A, were approved by the EPA. Activities addressed by these documents include removal of floor slabs at Buildings 16, 16A, 52, 52A, and electrical pad, and removal of any PCB contaminated soils. The floor slabs of former Buildings 40 and 41 will also be removed, but neither the slabs nor the underlying soils are expected to be contaminated.
