Districtwide electrical system updates continue

Work on air-conditioning and ventilation systems at Cypress Creek Campus is underway; a second phase of the work will be performed before the fall semester.

Electrical system upgrades and preventative maintenance are ongoing at Pinnacle and Riverside campuses and at Highland Building 4000. Systems at Northridge, Eastview, Cypress Creek, and Round Rock campuses also will be upgraded. Safer, updated systems will be easier to maintain and will lessen the impact of power failures.

New lighting is being installed at Riverside Campus gym.

Staff from the Building and Grounds Office also are working with construction design teams to incorporate energy-efficient, easy-to-maintain electrical systems in new facilities.

The crawlspace excavation for the new building is complete and piers have been drilled and poured. The elevator pit slab has been placed and pit wall construction is ongoing. Crews also have begun installing underground site utilities.

The concrete slab for the building’s first floor is scheduled to be complete by the end of June, to be followed by the second and third floor slabs. Structural steel installation is scheduled to be complete mid-August.
