The demolition of the south facade of the Vollum Institute began Monday, Jan. 18, and will continue through Friday, Feb. 29. Work will take place during weekdays after 3:30 p.m. to minimize impacts.

The project will replace the aging terracotta facade of the Vollum, and includes:

  • Installation of covered scaffolding for access and protection from falling debris
  • Removal of all existing terracotta on the Vollum facade
  • Installation of a new weather barrier
  • Replacement of all windows on the courtyard side of the building

Safety and minimizing impacts to daily operations are the top priorities during this time.
