The CUB officially closed May 8. Demolition work is being conducted by Hoffman Construction.

The two-year project will completely renovate the building. The shell and exterior facades will be largely retained, but all mechanical, electrical, plumbing, conveyance, glazing and finish systems will be replaced. New elements include a north stair and elevator tower with an associated pedestrian bridge and relocation of the student bookstore (Bookie) into the CUB.

Hoffman, general contractor/construction manager for the project, has mobilized for the project by setting up an office in the vacated portion of the Public Safety Building across from the CUB.

The $86M renovation of the largest building on campus is scheduled for completion in August 2008. Wilson Road will be closed to public traffic for the duration of the renovation.
