That’s right! Things are starting to take shape up on Level 1. Ceilings are certainly not the first place you look, but it is the first place you work during construction. So the lights have all been replaced with environmentally friendly LED lighting, the ceiling has been painted, as has many of the walls. And one of the biggest projects was the overhead fire door installation. That was completed today and it looks pretty nice.
The new overhead fire door on Level 1. With this in we can re-open the center stairwell.
The carpet came in too! Boxes and boxes of it. What do you think?
Check out the new carpet! (pardon our mess)
We are also seeing the data visualization lab taking shape. This is going to be a centerpiece of the floor!
The data visualization lab is starting to take shape!
We are looking good and on target!
Happy Friday! If you happened to be in Homer Babbidge today I hope you brought a sweatshirt! The steam shut down was longer than anticipated so it was pretty chilly.
Today we had the pleasure of showing Simon Neame, Dean of the UMass Amherst Library around the changes while he visited and we snapped a few photos to share.
See that wall? This is what will soon become bar top work stations all around the raised floor where the desktop computer were.
This is wild – see that circle. That used to be a brick wall and now it’s open. This is partly why things have been so loud and why the center staircase has been unavailable this week.
Martha Bedard, Vice Provost and Simon Neame, Dean of the UMass Amherst Library get an update from Holly Phillips, Assistant Vice Provost.
Getting ready to welcome UITS Service Center offices.
