Humphrey Hall Paint and Ceiling Replacement

Contractors will be replacing ceiling tiles and painting walls, doors and frames in Humphrey Hall. The work is isolated to the corridors on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd floors. It is expected that building users will share the corridor space with the contractor and their sub trades (electricians and painters) during the course of construction. All efforts will be made to minimize disruption to the building users but there will be times where corridor traffic might be busy. Please note that the schedule is subject to change based on unforeseen site conditions that could arise. Preliminary Construction Schedule (PDF, 30 KB)
