Physical plant team busy with campus improvements

January 9, 2009

While students and staffers were enjoying the holidays, Loyola’s Physical Plant team began a series of campus improvement projects.

Assistant Vice President for Administration Paul Fleming said this is typically the time of year they are able to complete a great deal of work.

“When everyone is gone, it’s surprising how much we can accomplish in terms of campus improvements,” Fleming said.

Over the holiday break, the team restriped parking lines on both campuses, painted the interior of the Whelan Child Care Center and the common areas in Mercy Hall and replaced the electric transformers in the College of Law and the Communications/Music Complex. Painting and carpet work also was completed in Monroe Hall.

Other improvement projects currently underway on the Broadway campus include repainting the exterior of Greenville Hall and replacing weather boards and damaged wood to that building, and replacing the 60-year-old boiler in the central plant to improve heating capabilities.

On the main campus, workers can be seen repainting the pergola in front of the Communications/Music Complex, which is also in the process of being reroofed. When completed, the pergola, the metal framework in front of the building, will match the color of the street lights along St. Charles Avenue. Additionally, a new fence is being erected on the west side of the University Sports Complex between the Tulane and Loyola campuses, and the electrical vaults on the main campus are being cleaned.
