Thurston Renovations Continue

The work on Thurston Hall from last summer is not over. The city recently approved a $3.5 million permit to continue “masonry restoration and window replacement.” Executive Vice President and Treasurer Lou Katz said this is within the initial $13.8 million budget for the project — originally listed in the University’s capital budget.

This construction, which will primarily occur over the summer, will focus on putting new windows on the back side of the building. Previously they replaced the sprinkler system and elevators, in addition to window work. “You cannot be in the rooms while they are doing the window work,” Katz said.

The building was closed last summer during Colonial Inauguration to accommodate the renovation, and Katz said it likely would be again this summer.
