Project Description
The purpose of the project is to restore the structural integrity of two sections of the tunnels on the west campus. The below grade pedestrian/utility tunnels have been in place for as much as 80 years. In addition to providing pedestrian access to several buildings, the tunnels also serve as the main distribution pathway for campus utilities, including steam, electrical, telecommunications, fire protection, etc. The design solution will require not only structural expertise, but also the expertise to develop a plan to maintain the integrity and functionality of the various utility and MEP systems in the tunnels during the restoration work.
