The project is being completed in two phases and began in Summer 2011. NC State Bookstores closed on May 27 and moved to temporary space on the ground level of Harrelson Hall. Several Student Affairs offies and student organizations also moved to Harrelson at this time to better serve students during construction. Site preparation began in mid-June.
|Spring 2011||Renovation begins on Harrelson Hall for Bookstore sales floor|
Bookstore, SORC, UAB and GLBT move to Harrelson Hall. Utility construction begins.
|Early 2012 - Fall 2012||
Deep Foundations/Underpinning/Pouring of Footings
This phase will be marked by mass excavation, underpinning the building and pouring footings. As soon as the basement excavation has progressed to allow deep foundation work to commence, drill rigs will be mobilized to install auger cast foundation piles. Approximately 550 holes 16- 24 inches in diameter will be drilled on average 60’ deep and filled with concrete to support the new building addition. Footings will be formed on top of these piles to provide a surface to anchor structural steel forming the "skeleton" of the new additions.
Structural Steel Installed
Approximately 1200 tons of structural steel will be used to create a framework for the new addition.
Concrete slabs will be poured to provide a foundation for the building’s floor.
|Late 2012 - Fall 2013||
Utility Service Installation
As soon as slabs are placed, mechanical/electrical/plumbing work will commence along with building interiors, and continue until phase I is completed in fall 2013.
|Late 2012 - Summer 2013||
We will install the exterior walls and features, which include glass, brick, terra cotta, and metal panels.
|Early 2013 - Fall 2013||
This will include the installation of drywall, finish ceilings, paint and flooring, along with the interior construction.
Phase II Plans
Phase II is scheduled to begin in late fall 2013, with the project scheduled for completion in Fall 2014. More details will be published as they become available.
