Facilities Planning and Construction Management - Library Addition - FAQs
Q. What is the major source of funding for the project?
A. The Library Addition project was primarily funded through a State allocation. The passage of ballot measure Proposition 1D, the Kindergarten-University Public Education Facilities Bond Act in November 2006 made this project possible. The "Campaign for Enhancement" conducted by the University, is an opportunity for groups or individuals to play a role in fulfilling the essential aesthetic needs of both library structures that are not covered by the construction funding. More information regarding the Library Enhancement Capital Campaign can be found at their web site.
Q. Will improvements be made to the existing library structure?
A. The existing library building is proposed to undergo an extensive remodel once the addition is completed. Since the funding for the remodel project will most likely be through a State allocation, the schedule for this project has yet to be determined.
Q. How are access and other construction disruptions handled?
A. As with any major construction project there are always potential issues in regards to access during the construction period. Temporary roads and sidewalks have been constructed to minimize the impacts to campus users. Construction, noise and dust are typically synonymous, in order to lessen these effects and others, the construction specifications has included requirements and guidelines for the contractor. These requirements include "Quiet Days" before and during finals; and special events; dust control and water runoff. Thus far the disruptions have been kept to a minimum and the campus has been very accommodating.
Q. Who can I contact for more information regarding the project?
A. Questions or comments regarding the construction of the Library Addition may be directed to Facilities Planning Construction Manager, Adele Vanarsdale. For specific information regarding library services please contact the Dean of the Library Sandra Parham.
