Construction Updates: 3-25-2022


MSUFCU East Lansing Building Located at 311 Abbot

Precast installation is currently on hold while the spring thaw road weight restrictions are in effect. Once the road weight restrictions have been lifted, we will recommence precast installation on the west stair tower. The north precast wall erection will follow and will be erected in unison with the center section of structural steel. Steel beams have been erected up to the seventh floor on the east third of the building. We are currently working on installing steel decking on each of the floors. Steel erection will continue through April 2022 with expected completion in early May. The mason is on-site installing granite on the north side of the building. The fire suppression contractor is on-site installing a fire suppression system standpipe in the east stair shaft and is expected to be completed by the end of the week. The mechanical contractor will be on-site Monday, March 28, working on layout and installing hangers for the first floor overhead mechanical and plumbing.

The lane closure on Abbot Ave. has been reinstated and will remain in effect for the foreseeable future. The westbound lane closure on Albert Ave. has been installed and will remain in effect for the foreseeable future. The south access to the alley off Albert Ave. will be closed to vehicles and pedestrians for the duration of overhead work to help ensure safety. The alley is accessible from the north.
