SEB Construction Updates 

June 5, 2018 – Paseo del Sur and Path Closures June 11 – December 31

A portion of the Paseo del Sur and the staircase south of the EB will be closed from June 11, 2018 through December 31, 2018, as part of the ongoing SEB project. During the closure, there will not be a continuous route along the Paseo del Sur from the Ford Avenue Lot bus stop to the ART and EB as well as the staircase between the ART and FLN – signage will be posted to assist with detours.

There are also plans to install a covered Paseo walkway and a temporary path northeast of the BSE at the end of August 2018 to mitigate the Paseo closure. These plans are contingent on construction progress and will be announced when finalized. For additional information, please reference the attached maps or contact the Facilities Service Center at 458-4262.  SEB Paseo Closure Maps

The Science and Engineering Building (SEB) superstructure continues to rise on the campus skyline at a steady pace. Concrete pours are complete for level one and nearly complete for level two. The building is expected to be topped-out by end of summer. Utility infrastructure in the below-grade crawlspace is underway, signifying the beginning of building interior work and ramping up of project personnel. Underground exploration has started at the Paseo del Sur to coordinate future elevated walkway piers with existing campus infrastructure. Submission of major mechanical, electrical, and plumbing building components has commenced, with campus stakeholders fully engaged. The project scope will be expanded to include the elevated walkway, connecting the campus’ upper plaza, south of the Engineering Building, with the SEB and a new 122-space surface parking lot.
