  • The construction company of Andersen Construction has been selected as the general contractor for the SEC and the any renovation that needs to the Memorial Union as a result of the impact of the SEC.
  • Currently the Construction Committee is reviewing information from the work of the other committees, particularly the SEC Space Allocation and Policy Committee.  As decisions are made in these committees that effect construction issues, the construction committee provides advice.
  • The Construction Committee recently took a tour of the Linus Pauling Science Center during its construction.  This gave the committee a chance to look at current construction methods used on campus and by Andersen Construction Company, who will also be the contractor for the SEC. Photos from the Linus Pauling Science Center tour
  • The Construction Committee has determined that a LEED certification process is desirable for the SEC Building.  The certification process gives credibility to the LEED design that can be understood long after the construction is finished.  The Committee will make a recommendation on the appropriate level of LEED Certification.
  • The Construction Committee will reconvene this Spring and will begin a series of ongoing regular meetings throughout Spring Term.  This term will find the committee engaged in more exploratory work, the beginning of some review and the making of additional recommendations to the SEC project.
