Project updates and progress

Fall 2019

The structure for the new building is taking shape! The focus has been on the following over the last few months:

  • finishing up the main structural steel frame for the connection of the SLC to and PAC
  • excavation, footings poured and steel skeleton constructed of the MC link
  • finishing the structure, roofing, and mechanical in the new flexible dining SLC area
  • demolition and construction in PAC subbasement mechanical space
  • complete renovation and expansion of existing PAC women’s change room
  • preliminary structural work to support the new link that will connect the two sides of PAC

The SLC/PAC Expansion team has engaged with the campus community, and answered questions about the project, through initiatives including:

  • Athletics Open House booth
  • WUSA Campus Fair booth
  • community art project at Orientation
  • collecting student feedback with 3 trial lap desks in the SLC great hall where students voted on which one they like the most.
