Physical Plant Update
The Preliminary Engineering Report for the University's Fire Alarm & Security Systems Upgrade project, drafted by Professional Systems Engineering, LLC (PSE), provides a total project allocation of $1,251,000 and does not take into account the additional capital funds ($750,000) authorized by the General Assembly in Act 27 of 2000. Mr. McGowan will ask PSE to revise the preliminary report to include these additional dollars. These additional funds will allow the inclusion of additional academic and administrative buildings in the project. The remaining four buildings which were in violation of L&I requirements (Library, Gym, SUB and Ware Center) passed an inspection on Friday, September 1, 2000. This round of inspections clears all of the University's open issues with L&I.
