Academic Mall Piping Project Begins
March 23, 2011
On Monday, March 28 work will begin on the Academic Mall piping project. Fences will be erected from McDonald across the Mall (from east to west) to Hinkle. The work in this phase of the project will be done in sections to allow pedestrian traffic to be maintained.
Academic Mall New Pipe Project
March 16, 2011
In the next few weeks work will begin on the Academic Mall to replace underground heating and cooling piping. The project will begin and continue while classes are in session and is scheduled to be completed by August 1.
Please note: The Academic Mall will remain open during the project.
The existing heating and cooling distribution system is leaking. Replacing the piping with insulated steel piping will not only reduce operational costs by repairing the leaks, but will connect Logan, Albers and Gallagher, etc. to the new, more energy efficient Central Utility Plant. It will also allow Xavier to retire older HVAC equipment in Logan.
To complete this project, certain pathways along the Academic Mall will be closed and foot traffic will be diverted.
The piping runs under the Academic Mall closest to the east side of the mall. Therefore the walkways along the east side of the mall (those closest to Alter and McDonald) will be closed for the duration of the project. There will still be access to Alter and McDonald from the mall; however, there may be times when the work will require that those entry ways be shut down for a brief period. Handicapped access will be maintained.
The walkways along the west side of the mall (those closest to Hinkle and Schmidt) will be open for the duration of the project.
Work will also take place at times across the mall. For example, new piping will be installed from McDonald across the mall to Hinkle and Schmidt. Pedestrian traffic will be diverted during these times.
Hot water heat will not be available during the duration of the project, so it may feel a bit humid inside some buildings along the Academic Mall. Air conditioning will be available as usual with some minor disruptions.
Additional announcements will be published with more specific dates as the project progresses.
Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
