SLPC Construction Update for Thursday, August 20

Wed, 2015-08-19 12:14

Two notes to bring to your attention regarding tomorrow, August 20, 2015:

* A crane will be located on St. Botolph Street from approximately 7 am to 11 am and may have an impact on traffic.  Please proceed with caution.

*Water service to the St. Botolph building will be suspended from approximately 6 am to noon.  Individuals will need to use the Jordan Hall restrooms and drinking water during that time.  Our apologies for this inconvenience.

As always, if you have any  questions, don’t hesitate to contact Mike Ryan (617-585-1187) or Karen Kidd (617-585-1181).

SLPC Construction: And the beat goes on!

Wed, 2015-07-22 10:39

Progress on the transformation of the parking lot into our new Student Life and Performance Center continues at an excellent pace.  Despite the heat, the weather has been cooperating and our pile driving continues on schedule.

The St. Botolph sidewalk will close during the week of July 27th through to the project’s completion.  Please take notice of the signage that will direct all pedestrian foot traffic on St Botolph Street to the Matthews Arena side of the street.  We will also be painting the cross walks to facilitate those crossings; our apologies for those extra footsteps!

Please continue to use caution and obey all signage in St. Botolph, as work continues on the bathrooms for ADA compliance.

Many thanks for your patience!

June 17 SLPC Update

Wed, 2015-06-17 14:06

Here are some quick updates regarding the work that is proceeding in the 241 St. Botolph building, as well as the Student Life & Performance Center:

241 ST BOTOLPH STREET BUILDING

Work continues on making this building ADA (American Disabilities Act) code compliant.  Conversion of our existing bathrooms, and installation of new railings, door handles and water fountains are proceeding through the end of July.

The work will be intermittent, and only one bathroom will be closed temporarily at any one time to help minimize the disruption.

PLEASE OBSERVE ALL DO NOT ENTER SIGNAGE, as these areas are now dangerous; you don’t want to find yourself in the bottom of an open shaft!

G03 will be closed until July 15.

SLPC SITE CONSTRUCTION

Site preparation for the pile driving, which is scheduled to begin June 22, is actually ahead of schedule.  We think perhaps a nod to the Anvil Chorus is appropriate to mark the launch of this next phase, which will continue through Labor Day.  We anticipate that the sidewalk closure will occur mid July.

QUESTIONS?  CONCERNS?

Please direct any to Mike Ryan, Michael.ryan@necmusic.edu, 617-585-1187; Karen Kidd, Karen.kidd@necmusic.edu, 617-585-1181; or anyone on the marketing team.  You can always find an updated project status at necmusic.edu/slpc-updates

And down it comes…

and two hours later:

 

Dear NEC faculty, staff, and students,

The dramatic, tangible beginning! The SLPC is really really going to happen! Here is the Annex under demolition this morning. Below, a reminder of the safety measures now in place to protect you and the work crew:

  • the parking lot is off limits and is now a construction zone.
  • Anyone entering the construction zone is required to notify Tishman Construction field staff and must wear a hard hat, safety glasses and high visibility vest.
  • The basement doorway entering 241 from the parking lot is closed to all but field construction staff.
  • Anyone entering 241 must use the main doorway.
  • Any NEC staff, administrators or others wishing to tour the construction site should contact Mike Ryan or Karen Kidd to arrange.  

Thank you and be safe.

As always, if you have questions, contact Mike Ryan (michael.ryan@necmusic.edu 617-585-1187), Karen Kidd (Karen.kidd@necmusic.edu  617-585-1181) or, until May 29, Ellen Pfeifer (ellen.pfeifer@necmusic.edu 617-585-1143).

The Annex Makes Way for the SLPC

Thu, 2015-05-21 10:47

Dear NEC faculty, staff, and students,

Demolition of the Annex in the St. Botolph parking lot has begun. Most immediately, the “bridge” between this structure and the 241 St. Botolph building, will come down this week. Then the structure itself will be taken down next week.

NEC has put into place safety measures to protect the NEC family and work crew. As of today, then:

  • the parking lot is off limits and is now a construction zone.
  • Anyone entering the construction zone is required to notify Tishman Construction field staff and must wear a hard hat, safety glasses and high visibility vest.
  • The basement doorway entering 241 from the parking lot is closed to all but field construction staff.
  • Anyone entering 241 must use the main doorway.
  • Any NEC staff, administrators or others wishing to tour the construction site should contact Mike Ryan or Karen Kidd to arrange.  

Thank you and be safe.

As always, if you have questions, contact Mike Ryan (michael.ryan@necmusic.edu 617-585-1187), Karen Kidd (Karen.kidd@necmusic.edu  617-585-1181) or, until May 29, Ellen Pfeifer (ellen.pfeifer@necmusic.edu 617-585-1143).

P.S. Those irreverent Building Ops folks staged their own ground breaking…umm…glass breaking event as a coda to NEC’s official celebration. See photos below.
