Reminder: Upcoming Green Bay Campus construction projects in summer 2021
There are a number of construction projects planned on the Green Bay Campus this summer. Among them:
Mary Ann Cofrin Hall: May 17 – November 20
This summer, contractors will remove and replace failed wall sealants; repair of brick and limestone masonry and mortar; remove ornamental steel frame at north elevation; wet seal window glazing gaskets; replace damaged thru-wall flashings; improve deficient areas of thermal and air barriers at roof to wall transitions; replace approximately 39,700 sf of standing seam metal roofing and associated metal fascia and soffit; install gutters and snow retention systems at metal roofing; replace approximated 2,000 sf of a below-grade waterproofing system, replace approximately 280 sf of EPDM roofing; rehabilitation of sloped glazing system; replacement of approximately 2030 sf of translucent panel skylight system; correction of site grading and drainage issues. This work will start after the conclusion of the Spring semester. It should be finished by the start of the Fall semester. Building occupants will experience noise interruptions during this work. When possible, we will try to coordinate larger noise events with occupants ahead of time.
Wood Hall: May 17 – November 20
This summer, contractors will remove approximately 16,000 sf of EIFS 43 and replacement with insulated metal wall panel system; rehabilitation of existing aluminum glazing 44 systems using existing window components and new sealants; repair of cracked and severely spalled 45 structural cast-in-place concrete; installation of snow guards at a building entry roof. This work will start after the conclusion of the Spring semester. It should be finished by the start of the Fall semester.
Cofrin Library: May 24 – July 26
Contractors will install mechanical anchor systems into six locations of 228 square feet each on the exterior brick façade. Each area is located between the third and fourth floors of the building. Noise will be a major factor during this installation. Some minor vibrations may be noticed by occupants on these floors of the building. Contractors will provide protection at each plaza entrance and/or will close entrances on an interim basis based on their work in that area.
Instructional Services: Tentatively June 2021 – December 2021
This summer, contractors will renovate approximately 16,583 GSF of the western third of the Instructional Services building (former WPNE spaces and loading dock area). The project will provide a new Electrical Engineering Technology (EET) and Physics Learning Center as well as a new Media Lab production center including audio and broadcast production and recording spaces, gaming streaming, radio studio, associated control rooms and support spaces, work area, and an improved TV Studio. Access at the loading dock may be very limited or closed to all traffic during this construction period. This work will start in June 2021 and extend through the Fall semester. The goal is to be operational by the start of the Spring semester.
Please note that the loading dock will be closed to all vehicular traffic (assigned, ADA, & service stalls).
Spring Steam shut-down: May 17 – 19
The campus will undergo its annual maintenance process on the central steam system. This means there will not be any hot water or building heat during this outage. The dates for this outage will be May 17-19.
