Beginning Monday night, April 21, the contractor for the Medical Sciences Building (MSB) Rehabilitation Project will begin removing barrier walls on Level 4 in preparation for ceiling duct work. This work will be performed on weeknights between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. The walls will be removed Monday and Tuesday; the duct work will continue for about six more weeks.
The barrier walls will be removed in two corridors that intersect with the main hallway: the hallway running from Room 4005 to the CARE/Crawley bridge, and the hallway adjacent to Conference Room 4352. A temporary plastic ceiling will be put back to maintain the construction barrier for negative air containment, creating inward airflow and confining odors and particles to the work area. The walls will stay down for the remainder of the construction (through the end of 2014).
In addition, the ceiling will be removed in the main passenger elevator area of Level 4, also for duct work, and a plastic barrier will be installed with negative air containment.
