SIUE Major Construction Update

Fall 2018

Founders Hall Renovation

9/21/18

Water service for Founders Hall will be shut off on Saturday, Sept. 22 at 5 a.m. Water service should be restored by 8 a.m. Please use restroom facilities and water fountains in Alumni Hall during this period.

9/13/2018 

Construction activity to isolate the work areas from the interior occupied spaces is ongoing.  Once completed the noise and disruptions to the offices and classrooms should be reduced dramatically.   Please be advised the 2nd and 3rd floors are closed for construction.  Please use the stairs and elevators only to access the 1st floor and lower level of Founders Hall.

Starting Monday, September 17, 2018 demolition work will begin to remove portions of the precast concrete exterior panels.  The following week around 9/24 large drill rigs will begin excavation for the new structural piers on the west side of Founders Hall.  During this same week demolition is to start on the East stair towers as well.    

Access between Founders Hall and Alumni Hall to Parking LOT A will remain with an opening in the construction fencing, but will be periodically closed as construction progresses, cutting off direct access to Lot “A”. During these times, Parking Lot “A” may be reached through the north entrance to Alumni Hall and south entrance to Founders Hall.  Access to Founders Hall is restricted to the lower level and 1st floor as only authorized construction personal may access the 2nd and 3rd floors during the first phase of construction.

8/18/2018 

Starting Monday, August 20, 2018 construction to renovate Founders Hall building will effect pedestrian foot traffic around Founders Hall, Alumni Hall and Parking Lot “A”.  Please be advised that a construction fence is installed in Parking Lot “A” and around portions of Founders Hall.

Access between Founders Hall and Alumni Hall to Parking LOT A will remain with an opening in the construction fencing, but will be periodically closed as construction progresses, cutting off direct access to Lot “A”. During these times, Parking Lot “A” may be reached  through the north entrance to Alumni Hall and south entrance to Founders Hall. Access to Founders Hall is restricted to lower level and 1st floor as only authorized construction personal may access the 2nd and 3rdfloors during the first phase of construction.
