Electrical project to impact quad, west hospital entrance

UMass Medical School Communications

octubre 27, 2017

On Monday, Oct. 30, Facilities Management will begin work to install an electrical substation on the roof of the University Campus hospital. A large work and staging area on the quad in front of the hospital and the main medical school entrance will be fenced off throughout the project, which is expected to be completed in April.

Beginning in November and for the duration of the project, there will be a tower crane on the quad adjacent to the revolving door at the west entrance to the hospital. At various periods during the project, it will be necessary to close the west entrance and adjacent sidewalks for safety reasons, such as when the crane is being assembled and when materials are being delivered to the roof.

Additional updates will be shared as needed throughout the project.

Questions about the project may be directed to John Baker, UMMS Associate Vice Chancellor for Facilities.
