Main Quad façade inspections

A boom-lift will be on the main quad the week of March 20 to allow crews to inspect and photograph building elevations at Cobb, Rosenwald and Stuart halls, as well as the Bookstore and Oriental Institute.


This week-long activity is necessary to complete in advance of façade renovations being planned for summer 2017.

The campus community can expect the following:

-- Equipment and workers will be visible; all building access points, walkways and sidewalks will remain open.

-- Some noise will be associated with the use of a boom-lift.

-- Work hours are 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., weather permitting.

For information, contact Barry O'Quinn, manager, campus trades shop, at boquinn@uchicago.edu or 773.834.1548.

Thank you for your patience during this work.
