It's hot. Really hot. So maybe it's a good thing the construction work on campus has progressed from outside to inside as the thermometer shoots up! In the Seay Student Center expansion, electrical work and sheetrock installation are done, as well as installation of fire protection piping. They are finishing out the sheetrock and painting at this very moment (see photos below).
Across the street at the new Trustee Hall, sheetrock and painting has finished, as well as the installation of glass in the exterior doors. They have also set the mechanical units, installed the cabinets and millwork, and installed ceramic tiles in the bathrooms.
Students in the fall can look forward to big improvements in the Smith/Broyles General Chemistry Lab and Organic Lab, as well. Demoliton of the old cabinets, hoods, and ceilings is complete; roof curbs are installed, likewise the stainless steel vent hood ductwork, floor drilling for plumbing of the new cabinets and work stations, and plumbing.
Let's just hope they get the air conditioning going pretty quick as well!
