We are almost one month away from the completion of the Opera House apartments! Recent progress includes flooring and countertop installation in each apartment. Light fixtures have been installed on the third floor, and power is being turned on in each apartment. Tiling is complete on the second and third floors. All bedrooms and living spaces will be ready for students by mid-August. The ballroom is expected to be completed by the beginning of September, with drywall currently under way. Earthwork for the back alley patio is next on the list.
Bruske Hall construction also is on schedule for completion by mid-August. Student rooms are nearly complete, with new flooring, paint and windows installed. Tile installation and plumbing are complete in the bathrooms. Lights are going up in student rooms on the first and second floors. Site work is almost finished, with restoration coming next. Framing, drywall and fire suppression are nearing completion, and mechanical work is ongoing. Upcoming projects include re-waxing the floors and setting furnishing and fixtures in the bathrooms.
