  • The Phase II Project involves replacement of approx. 36,350 SF of Aluminum Windows.
  • The Construction will be phased over 2 separate summers (2005 and 2006) with approx. 10 weeks of construction to Substantial Completion each summer.

  • A separate project is also currently underway studying the feasibility of redesigning and renovating the Dining Rooms & Dining Services. This project will study the first floor south entry storefront of the Lounge building and the lower level storefront on the east and west facades of the Lounge Building. Upon completion of the Dining Rooms & Dining Services study it will be determined if these areas will become part of this Window Replacement project.
