Reconstructing the Big Blue Campus
The face of campus is changing as the University of Kentucky (UK) is partnering with both the private and public spheres to undergo major reconstruction. Lynn Imaging is proud to be the planroom provider for the University of Kentucky. You can follow UK construction on their private planroom at www.ukplanroom.com. Lynn Imaging provides current and complete information to the University of Kentucky planholders on each of their projects.
The university has contracted out the development and construction of its privatized housing to Education Realty Trust (EdR)—a contract worth over $500 million. With about 300 students in Central Halls I & II and construction of new housing under way in three other locations across campus, Phase II of UK’s privatized housing plan is well under way.
Still, the “Master Plan” has only just begun. The university-funded reconstruction of several academic and other non-residential facilities is guided by its new Master Plan, developed by Sasaki Associates. The plan is composed of projects designed to optimize growth on UK’s campus. One project already underway is a $65 million renovation of the Gatton College of Business, designed by New York architect Robert A.M. Stern, which broke ground this fall.
Other projects under this plan include the expansion and renovation of Commonwealth Stadium and the construction of a new $100 million science building to be erected on Rose Street. While UK has signed the construction firm Skanska USA Building Inc./Congleton-Hacker Company to lead the Stadium project, much of the labor is still up for grabs. The $83 million project will begin taking bids for many of its remaining contracts associated with construction on March 14.
Despite all the construction already underway, there is still much to be done on UK’s campus. The proposed science building is still in early stages of contracting, and several other high profile projects are just beginning. Last month the university approved the design phase for renovation and expansion of the Student Center, and the design phase for the upgrade/relocation of the Pediatric Critical Care Unit is in progress as well.
In addition to all the big buzz at the university, there are numerous smaller projects on the table. The university is currently taking bids from architects, contractors, and engineers on projects such as the renovation of Sanders Hall, the improvement of mechanical systems in academic building, and the design of flood mitigation systems for Nicholasville road.
Whether you’re an alumnus, current student, or just an individual or business interested in innovation, there are lots of changes to be excited about on UK’s campus.
