Moving day advice

A town hall was held May 3 with all occupants of the HSLC who will be affected by upcoming construction for the enhancement project. As outlined in that meeting and in the graphic above, construction is set to commence on June 28. Therefore all moves that need to occur before Phase 1 must take place before June 9. 

We will be posting construction updates regularly on this site throughout the construction process in coordinated efforts with our selected
General Contractor to keep building users informed about phasing, schedules, progress, closures, openings, etc.
