Wilson Hall stairwells to close for safety feature updates

The construction in Wilson Hall will soon move to the stairwells, to provide updated safety features. Click here to see a mock-up of the finished work.

This week, FESS crews have begun preparation for the last stage of the Wilson Hall atrium upgrades. Crews are closing off the northwest stairwells and putting up construction barriers to protect from potential falling debris. The elevators will remain open but the stairwell will be closed until about
June 1.

Scaffolding, demolition and preparation work will occur first, and then the installation of the cable barrier system and railing improvements will begin.

In June, work crews will move to the east side of the atrium to make the same improvements. Work should finish in the fall. Follow progress of the construction with updates from FESS here.
