Beginning today, and continuing through the first week of February, 2014, the restrooms in the far southeast corner of Menard Hall will be closed for a major repair/renovation project. As many of you know, the walls and floors of these two restrooms have experienced soil subsidence. At this point the interior walls have separated from the concrete ceiling above by as much as two or more inches. We will be demolishing the walls, removing the floor tile, installing new foundations for the interior walls and rebuilding the spaces with new materials and fixtures.
We know this will be an inconvenience to many staff and students, so we’ve tried to spread this over a period when the College will be closed for Thanksgiving and Christmas. We appreciate your patience and cooperation.
Hugh Garvey, Asst. VP, Construction
