Board OKs Quadrangle replacement
The Board gave Khator authority to negotiate design and construction contracts for the Quadrangle Replacement Housing Project. Thursday’s vote represents the first official green light for the project.
“The Quadrangle (is one of) our oldest facilities and in need of replacement. It’s an $80 million project, will have a minimum of 1,000 beds with up to 1,200 beds,” said Senior Vice Chancellor and Vice President for Administration and Finance Jim McShan, who was approved for that position at the meeting after serving as the interim.
“While we still want to continue to grow our beds to 25 percent of our total enrollment, these facilities need to be replaced, if you’ve been in them lately,” McShan said. “Design would begin in July, construction would start in December 2017 and would complete in July 2019.”
This should have us with a good footing once the article comes out. I’ll be in the office this week through Thursday and then out until August 1st. Since Move-in is shortly there-after, it would be great to have this all up and in place by August 1st.
