No mention of Kaiser upgrades? Also, noticed something during football season. The up the hill quad, Vance, Sam May etc, is looking REALLY crappy. Lawns are a mess, side walks all tore up. Felt like looking over my shoulder like i was in a bad neighborhood, lol. Hope they address that stuff sooner rather than later.

-C.J. Huang Center project is going to be connected to Kaiser so I assume that's the same "upgrade"

-Crappy because they are building the new dining hall up there or just crappy in general?
winter is coming... the snow should cover up all that crap. :wink:

Oh, that's right, thanks Pitch.

Crappy in general, walking through the quad after a football game, to get to the garage near Kaiser, it's just all nasty. Sidewalks all crumbling. Grass is all dead and showing dirt. Basketball courts look all nasty. Building faces look dirty. Just crappy in general.

Do they still have that giant move-out dumpster there? Last fall, it hung around for much longer than it should have.

The refurbishing of said quad was actually my senior project last year; I think I may have made mention of it on the boards here. When we presented it at the Civil Eng. senior project meeting, Bachoo and Lovitt at least seemed impressed/intrigued in it. We focused on fixing up exactly what you mentioned, along with adding some new amenities like a large outdoor covered seating area for events and studying, and stuff like bike racks for and solar lighting along the walkways for some cheap and dirty LEED points (lol).

You could probably ask Jim Grupp in Facilities if you wanted to know whether or not they plan on going through with it or using what we did as a springboard. It obviously wasn't as in-depth as a full on refurbishing plan, but it had a lot of the framework of what the university wanted to do with the area.

Also, very pleased to see they decided to let people know what's going on with the university. I would love to see Dr. Miller step outside what I would think is his comfort zone and see if he can get an alumni donation drive going. I know we have the standard self-driven donation plan, but CCSU really needs a jolt of money to get us where we need to be.

Nice find NB. Let's hope these projects all come to fruition and stay on schedule.

According to a CCSU Facebook post, the "Willaretto" project will start by this summer.

Man, that is a TON of work. The 100K sq.ft. engineering building feels small, but anything at this point to pull the tech and engineering programs away from the other hard sciences and maths and get them their own building. That Carroll renovation seems very high considering the scope of work. I can only assume that either they're adding on to the building or the building is really that old. Someone might've mentioned it already on here somewhere, but the Dance Studio is up and running. I did not actually believe that Facilities was serious when they mentioned it; I guess I have to eat my hat now. Very intrigued by the new garage this either means that Charter Oak is finally going to make the move out of their building to elsewhere and the lot will finally be torn up, or they're slamming it right in the green area near the intersection.

Really happy to see so much going on; the amount of construction planning to take place tells me that we're finally breaching the medium-sized public university and stepping into the big time, especially considering how land-locked we are and how desperate we are for new facilities. I hope that this isn't just a bait and switch that'll leave us dry for the next half-century and that the state continues to keep throwing us money. Perhaps this is to spite the Big Dog that has been flushing away money in truckloads the last few years; whatever the reason, keep it coming!

Aero... 28 million to renovate Carroll; I agree that it is a lot. Why don't they just tear it down to build a new faculty that offers more space.

The new STEM building is not large at 100 k sf! That's not small but should be larger. To give you an idea space/size, Vance Academic Center is, I believe, 100 k sf.
