  • The permanent repair to windows on the downtown campus has begun. The replacement glass systems have arrived and the contractor has installed approximately 12 windows at CSRB.
  • The environmental remediation work is substantially complete at 1542 Tulane Ave. Test results are expected in the near future that will tell us if any re-cleaning is required.
  • At the Dental School, the temporary repair work continues:
    • Chiller #1 condenser water line being piped.
    • The chilled water piping for Chiller #1 and Chiller #2 is complete.  Leak testing underway.
