DEPARTMENT(S): 
October 17, 2018
Please be aware a crane will be on site Thursday, October 18th, from 7:00 am to 4:00 pm to conduct a final phase of the Foisie construction project. 
 
  1. The crane will be set up in the area of the Bartlett Center, Higgins Labs, and the Foisie Innovation Studio (see map below)
  2. The work area will be closed to pedestrians and vehicle traffic
  3. The wheelchair accessible entrance to Higgins Labs will be out of service; however, staff will be onsite to provide a safe escort through the work space to access Higgins Labs
  4. We anticipate that the crane lift will be complete by 4:00 pm
 
The work involves the removal of old chillers on the roof of Higgins Labs; chilled water to Higgins will now be supplied by the new equipment chillers installed as part of the Foisie Innovation Studio project. 
 
Please contact rpobrien@wpi.edu with questions or for assistance.
 
Thank you in advance for your patience.
