June 17 SLPC Update

NEC Construction News - 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

VC WEB BLOG | VC 'Artist' Angelo Xiang Yu - 'Michael Hill Comp – Mixture of Joy and Sadness':

““My Michael Hill Competition experience was a mixture of joy and sadness.It was 4 year ago, a month before the competition, my dad called me from China while I was having lunch at the student lounge of New England Conservatory. By then my mom had been suffering from leukemia for more than 20 months, and my dad told me that she had less than a month to live and it would be nice for me to go home immediately.“
