GBC began working with OSU as the abatement of Burt Hall was wrapping up to investigate and provide constructibility and cost estimating for the re-build of the interior spaces. This process included working with the design team to look at new systems and evaluate building infrastructure capacities.
The conversion of the WOU Welcome Center consisted of a new two-story lobby, heavy mechanical, plumbing, electrical, building controls, data, and audio visual upgrades as well as all new fire life safety systems and new fire sprinkler systems throughout the building. All new ADA upgrades for exterior access as well as all new restroom configurations for ADA compliance. Coordination of building access for faculty and students as well as outside vendors for the print and mail departments remained a top priority ensuring student and staff safety.
GBC worked closely with WOU Project managers and building occupants for department relocations as required to complete the major structural seismic upgrade work.
Two annex buildings attached to the ITC Main building needed to remain fully operational during the 13-month construction period. GBC worked closely with our subcontractors and WOU Facilities staff to devise a plan for MEP (heating/cooling, main data fiber for campus services, fire and life safety systems, as well as normal and emergency power systems) work arounds to maintain all services to the much needed services of the annex attached buildings.
