Work has continued unimpeded on the William and Linda Frost Center for Research and Innovation throughout fall and winter quarters.
Over the last couple of months, the Frost Center site has accomplished some major milestones including the completion of storm and sewer utility connections on Via Carta. The main tie into the campus utilidor line is also being finalized.
Work on the interior mechanical, electrical and plumbing is underway on all four floors, and rooms are taking shape on the first and second floor as the wall framing goes in. Another noticeable change will be seen as installation of the exterior curtain wall progresses.
To ensure the health and safety of all employees throughout the pandemic, contractors have updated protocols and increased oversite. These protocol changes include mandated social distancing of crew members, increased sanitation of workstations, countertops, handrails and doorknobs, staggered break and lunch times, required COVID-19 specific Job Hazard Analysis for trade contractors and more.
The project is expected to be completed fall 2021. To learn more about this project or watch the live construction feed click here.
