A building that will house locker rooms and restrooms is under construction at the Abe Stuber Track and Field Complex.

Kathy Mangels, vice president for finance and administration, delivered a report to the Regents on capital contracts and Facilities Management projects. Mangels said Brockmiller Construction is replacing the roof on the Student Recreation Center this summer. Renovations to Crisp Hall are about 85 percent complete with work currently focused on interior finishes, she said. Chillers are being replaced at the Holcomb Success Center which also provide cooling to the Douglas C. Greene Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship and the Aleen Vogel Wehking Alumni Center. Framing of a new building that will house new restrooms and locker room facilities has begun at the Abe Stuber Track and Field Complex. Repair work is planned on a utility tunnel near the Otto and Della Seabaugh Polytechnic Building and the Group Housing complex. The project will be bid in fall 2019 with work to begin in January 2020.  In addition, plans call for two rooms in Dempster Hall to be converted into Business Experiential Labs. Work on this project has not yet begun, but will be completed by in-house staff. In addition, Mangels said the University’s capital budget request in the coming fiscal year will remain the same with the priorities being funding for a complete renovation of the Art Building and for campus-wide infrastructure updates, including roof, tunnel and HVAC repairs.
