JDUC window project starts Sept. 28

On Monday, Sept. 28, Emmons & Mitchell will commence work on pulling windows (installing temporary Lexan inserts) from the west end of the John Deutsch University Centre (JDUC) main elevation on the east side of Wallace Hall. Fencing is in place for isolation of the work from public areas. Site work using genie or boom lifts will only operate within the fenced area.

On Tuesday, Sept. 29, weather permitting, Emmons & Mitchell will commence installing the walk-through scaffold over the south entrance and the two basement exits to the side. During the installation of the scaffold, each of the three exits will sequentially be out of service for regular use – i.e., only one exit at a time will be out of service. Even during the brief time that an exit is “closed” it will still be available for emergency use.  A simple barricade to dissuade use of an exit will be easily and quickly moved clear if an emergency occurs.

Please note:

  • Emmons & Mitchell will temporarily dismantle the walk-through scaffold and remove equipment and fencing for Homecoming events.
  • Work associated with this project will be done in stages. The current schedule has the crew working in Wallace Hall and on most of the west elevation windows next spring and summer. The site foreman from Emmons & Mitchell will work with the Student Life Centre staff as appropriate. 
  • Grad Residence is not included in the scope of work for this project.
