What's happening on your floor? 

Week of 2/27/17

 


All staff members are encouraged to contact the Construction Mitigation Office at 617-496-0857 or by email sccconstruction@harvard.edu with any questions or concerns of noise, air quality, or other construction impacts.
 

Floors 10, 9, 8, and 7

  • Accessibility upgrades are being performed on the 8th floor. This work will take place during off hours (6pm-12am). All impacted departments have been notified.
  • Demolition activities will continue on the 10th floor.
  • In preparation for phase 4 of the façade restoration project at the Smith Campus Center, the contractor will need to access windows on all floors of the west wing (closest to Dunster Street) of the south tower (closest to Mt. Auburn Street) this coming Saturday (2/25). In order to do this, crews will be removing approximately 18”-20” of interior film at the bottom of the window. This helps the team determine which windows needs to be replaced when crews mobilize to the south tower to begin construction activity. The 18”-20” of missing film at the bottom of the windows will not be replaced until the crews mobilize for façade work on the south tower. Impacted departments have been notified.
  • Crews will begin scaffolding up the building for phase 4.1 (south tower) of the façade project. This activity will generate noise from intermittent drilling. This will take several weeks to complete.
