Lot 11 Opening Postponed

Lot 11 construction has been delayed, but will be opened by December 21. Please contact Design & Construction Management with any questions at 341-4252.

Geothermal Well Drilling Complete

This month marked a major milestone for the geothermal energy system project with the last well being drilled in lot 36 on October 18th. Paving was completed in Lot 8 and put in service early last week for
parking and the schedule of the well drilling and parking lot
replacement continues to track well. Circuit piping in lot 36 will continue until its completion date of mid-November. Additionally, it appears lot 36 is ahead of schedule and will be back in service near the end of December (weather permitting). Lot 11 remains on schedule to be back in service by the third week of November.

Our primary goals for the next two months is to complete all geothermal piping and have both parking lots 11 and 36 back in service before winter.

Open Forum, April 9

Design & Construction Management will hold an open forum Monday, April 9, at 10:00 AM in the Carver Turner Room, Havener Center. Topics of discussion will include boundaries of work, parking lot closures, and building & loading dock access.

Please send any questions regarding the open forum to Fred.Stone@mst.edu.

Groundbreaking Event, April 17

On Tuesday, April 17, Missouri S&T will host an unusual groundbreaking to celebrate the start of our geothermal energy project. Join us for this occasion as we officially kick off “Earth Week”–which culminates with the community-wide Earth Day celebration on Friday, April 20. The groundbreaking event on April 17 will take place at 4:00 pm on the Emerson Hall lawn at Missouri S&T, near the intersection of North Pine and 16th streets. (In case of inclement weather, the event will be held in the Kummer Atrium of Butler-Carlton Civil Engineering Hall.)

This geothermal energy project was approved by the University of Missouri Board of Curators in 2010. In keeping with our initiative to become a green campus, this project will reduce our energy costs and drastically cut our carbon dioxide emissions when completed.

Should you have any questions regarding the event, please call 573-341-4116.
