Construction crews make summer sizzle

The WPI Quadrangle was a hub this summer for work crews renovating Sanford Riley Hall from basement to roof; temporary food service stations were set up in the Lower Wedge while the Grille was being transformed to include a Burger King, World's Fare and Leo's Delancy Street Deli; jackhammers roared and trucks rumbled through the section of West Street that is becoming a pedestrian plaza; and workers swarmed through Salisbury Laboratories, which is being renovated to include new facilities for research, teaching and project work.

"We are very pleased with the progress and the quality of the work," says John Miller, director of physical plant. "The Riley and Grille renovations, which had to be completed in time for the start of classes, went very smoothly and we are very proud of the upgrades and the new look of these important parts of the campus. We are confident that the other projects will also be completed in a timely manner."
