Things are really starting to take shape on the construction site of the new OR/Lab/Pharmacy. One quarter of the ground floor will be ready for its first coat of paint next week! After that, crews will be able to install the ceiling, flooring, counters, and cabinets!

We’re still awaiting word on when crews will do final work on Campus Avenue. The last significant step is paving. This will disrupt traffic. We will update you as soon as we get information.

Work on Campus Avenue is almost complete. This week a catch basin will be installed at the cross walk to the Main Lobby.

Inside the building, contractors are installing sheetrock and electrical and mechanical rough-ins continue.

Dunkin Donuts relocated last week and will expand to have a seating area when the new Main Lobby opens at the end of October.

The old Dunkin Donuts is being renovated for the new Registration area. Registration is expected to move to its new home in early 2011.

You may have noticed the St. Mary’s campus has been abuzz with activity lately.   It is exciting to see the giant cranes and steel beams rising from the OR/Lab/Pharmacy construction site.

Meanwhile, across the street, crews have poured the footings for the new entrance at 100 Campus Avenue.  An airlock is being created where one had not existed before. Work crews are scheduled to finish the concrete slab by the end of next week. When that is done, the entrance should be able to reopen to pedestrian traffic. Work on the doors and the entrance lobby will continue for several weeks.

The patio at d’Youville Pavilion was showing signs of age.  The concrete was uneven making it difficult to maneuver wheelchairs and walkers.  It was becoming a serious safety issue.  So, it has been dug up and crews are prepping the area to place down a new one.

Many of you may have “bottomed out” your cars when coming to visit the 96 Campus Avenue building.  The giant pothole at the parking lot entrance has been filled.
