Finish work continues throughout the building as we look forward to wrapping up the bulk of the remaining construction activities, cleaning, and punching spaces in the next six to seven weeks.
Spaces will begin to come ready for final cleaning, AV install, and furniture moving in mid-December. As a whole, the building will remain closed for full move-in until substantial completion and temporary occupancy on Jan. 10, 2024. The construction fence comes down the following week on Jan. 17. 
Door frames have been prepped and painted, and lighting and MEP trim is being installed throughout Level 2. The next couple weeks will see the team moving into installing equipment and accessories before rough clean and flooring install.
Painting on level 2 of Pacific Hall is complete and the project moves to level 1 for a bathroom refresh. Windows have been installed and passed their final round of testing. Learn more about what's in store for November.

With the seismic upgrade complete, the full focus of the construction now turns to the finish sequence on both levels inside the building as well as to the repair/refurbishment work at the building’s exterior.
We are excited to inform you that the seismic upgrade, which represents a major milestone for the project, has been completed. The team also is beginning to build the schedule for post-construction activities related to prepping the building for reopening by the start of the spring semester on Jan. 29, 2024. 
As a whole, the Pacific Hall project remains on schedule for a Jan. 10 completion date, and the buidling is on track to re-open by the start of spring term. We also are excited to see the new classrooms, computer labs, pods, and offices take shape on level 2 over the last couple weeks. 
The construction team wrapped up interior concrete work this week. Window installation is complete on level 2, and the team continues to make rapid progress on window install on level 1. Inside the building, the team passed the first electrical cover inspection on level 2 while MEP, low-voltage and fire sprinkler work continues.
Many of the construction activities this week are continuing from last week. Brace walls continue to be installed on level 1, MEP and fire sprinkler work continues throughout the building, and windows are being installed.
