(February 1, 2018) – Repairs to the exterior stairs located near the BSB and FLN were completed on January 12, 2018. The concrete steps had lapsed into a state of disrepair as a result of having large objects dropped on them. In November 2017, Dean Perry notified Facilities about the condition of the stairs and the Facilities Research Zone (manager Justin Lowe and carpenters Stephen Davis and James Robisheaux) immediately began work to redesign and repair the stairs. New concrete steps were poured and capped with a ¼-inch aluminum, anti-slip material to reduce the potential for breakage. The before and after photos show the original condition of the stairs, design improvements and completed repairs. Great job Research Zone.
