Current Capital Projects
The Dana Avenue Lighting project consists of installing pedestrian lighting along Dana Avenue from Victory Parkway to Montgomery Road.
This project is being designed to extend the campus lighting to the edge of campus and will be installed in conjunction with the widening of Dana Avenue being constructed by the City of Cincinnati.
The project will be done in phases with the first phase, consisting of the underground conduits, scheduled for completion by the Spring of 2012.
The second phase includes the installation of the light poles and bases and will be completed in the future.
The Safety Matters Team was formed in February 2010 at the request of Xavier’s Vice President for Financial Administration. The Safety Team was requested to focus on identifying strategies to improve safety performance and identify methods to accurately communicate Xavier’s positive campus safety record.
Three of those strategies involve Physical Plant:
- Electronic Door Access: A phased project over the next 5 years that will expand the electronic door access control program to eventually include electronic access on all exterior entrances to campus buildings and all interior doors in Residence Halls.
- Emergency Phone Systems: This project will upgrade/replace current emergency phone equipment; expand emergency phone system coverage and include mass notification ability. Physical Plant will install new or reuse existing conduits where needed.
- Upgrade Campus Lighting at Selected Locations: This is intended to increase exterior lighting levels at selected areas in and around campus to enhance safety. This will require the installation of new light poles at strategic locations around campus. One of these locations is along Dana Avenue, where the infrastructure will be installed for future placement of lighting standards.
