As part of the Cordley Hall Renewal project,  interior demolition in Cordley Hall east will continue through December 2022. Current elevated noise levels are expected to continue through that time.  Steps have been taken to minimize noise, such as leaving windows in place until demolition on that floor is complete. 

The Cordley Hall Renewal project is a priority of the university and contributes to SP 4.0 actions of sustainability by reducing our carbon footprint by renovating over building new, and by improving our physical and research infrastructure.
