South College Academic
Facility



 

The South College Academic Facility renovation and addition project is set to begin in early 2015.  Preliminary utility work is necessary in the area (see map, left).  Establishing work areas and tree protection is phased: current (in red), encloses areas north and west of South College; next, on September 10 (in yellow), will close a section of Hicks Way; and a temporary road (in brown) will be put in place.  Accessible parking on the north side of Goodell will remain open, as will access to the South College loading dock.  Completion of this utility work is scheduled for the end of November.

Questions about this project should be directed to the Design & Construction Management project manager, Henry Merriman, at 413-577-1722, or hmerriman@facil.umass.edu.
