Summer of Construction - What you Misssed

It was certainly the summer of construction at Vol State. Now that it's mostly done we can begin to see the results. The most important stuff, though, you may not see at all. Warf underwent a major infrastructure overhaul. As you can see from our pictures they put in a new heat and air conditioning system and re-did wiring. While it's easy to see the new sidewalks and plazas in between Ramer and Wood, what you don't see if new drainage, road beds and underground wiring. There are also many improvements for ADA disability access.

The final piece of the Caudill project will be landscaping.  Once it cools down landscapers will finish the project this fall with plantings. As you can see, the improvements give students new places to meet, sit and congregate.

There is a new parking lot near the back entrance to the college. It has a path that leads to Mattox and Wallace. That lot will be important because crews are getting ready to start construction on the new Allied Health building. That project will happen in the parking lot between Wallace and Mattox.

Congrats to everyone in Plant Operations for getting everything done on time and for their hard work this summer. While contractors did much of the construction our folks supervised and did many extra projects in support of the effort. It was a huge team effort to get campus ready for the first week of classes.

Those of us who were here will always remember the lovely jackhammer sidewalk work and the fun of figuring out which entrance might be open on any given day. In the end progress always comes with sacrifice and the campus is much better for the work done.

Here are some progress pictures:
