Central Campus-Podium Rehabilitation (Phase I)

Yokum Hall to Beaumont Hall to Hudson Hall.
Update
Remaining items are repainting of peeling painted handrails, missing four small sections of rail at the Broad St. Bridge, snow melt manifold stainless steel manifolds (onsite today 9-12-17), need to recaulk expansion and control joints where ruined by concrete sealer, need to top off stone edging between green roof and stamped concrete walkway, need to complete installation of rebuilt HTHW valves, need final mechanical piping and equipment labeling, and missing complete turnover package (all O&M’s and as-built drawings) Estimated timeline: Project is substantially complete.
Estimated Timeline
Project is substantially complete.
Scope
This is an extensive rehabilitation of the existing elevated walkway, called the podium, which connects numerous buildings at the second-floor level. Phase I shall include the Podium spanning from the walkway starting at Parking Lot 8 of Yokum Hall by Beaumont Hall and completing at Hudson Hall. It will involve removing the existing walking surface pavers down to the existing structural slab. A new membrane, drainage and stamped concrete walking surface will be installed. An impressed current cathodic protection system will be installed to protect the reinforcing steel in the structure. Also new to the structure will be a radiant heat snow melt system in the hardscape portions, to minimize if not negate snow removal operations. The reduction in heavy snow removal equipment and use of chlorides as deicers will serve to vastly extend the life of the Podium. New green spaces will spruce up the walkways along the railing edges, and the underside will be rehabilitated to fix all the damaged concrete from water infiltration. The two approaches to the bridge over Broad St. have been completely replaced.
