Regents approve work at Lloyd Hall, C.C. Little and School of Social Work

The following items were approved by the Board of Regents at its meeting Thursday:

Lloyd Hall renovation receives final approval

The regents authorized issuing bids and awarding construction contracts for the Alice Crocker Lloyd Hall Renovation project. The $56 million project includes new plumbing, heating, cooling, ventilation, fire detection and suppression, wired and wireless networking, renovated bath facilities and accessibility improvements, as well as new living-learning spaces in the vacated dining areas no longer needed since the Hill Dining Center became operational. The project is being funded from Housing resources and is scheduled to be completed in the summer of 2012.

Renovations planned at C. C. Little

A $2 million project will renovate approximately 10,600 gross square feet of space on the fourth floor of the Clarence Cook Little Science Building to create modern research facilities for recently recruited faculty in the Department of Geological Sciences. The project is being funded by LSA and is scheduled to be completed this fall.

School of Social Work to be renovated

Approximately 18,400 gross square feet of space on the atrium level of the School of Social Work Building will be renovated to enhance the school's educational programs, including creation of a new clinical suite and updated spaces for student interaction, as well as expanded spaces for continuing education programs. The $1.85 million project is being funded by the School of Social Work and is scheduled to be completed this summer.
