Transcript C•O•N•S•T•R•U•C•T•I•O•N C•H•A•N•G•I•N•G ZARANA SANGHANI A reconstruction project that began in December 1996 and continued through Fall 1997 put a new face on Agnes Arnold Hall. "We basically spruced up the building," said Jim Berry, associate vice chancellor for Facilities, Planning and Construction. "Students should expect a more comfortable, fresher looking building." AH received new doors, new windows and fresh paint for the exterior and several interior offices. "On the outside they did masonry restoration," Berry said. "We started the brick repair work later (after the summer) because it wasn't necessary to move people back into the classrooms." Contractors pressure washed the bricks and concrete floors in the outside corridors. The project cost the University of Houston $3.3 million. Berry said none of the funds for financing the reconstruction came from student fees. Instead, the Higher Education Assistance Fund provided the monies for the renovations. The project also included roof work, an upgrade in the building's electrical capacity, renovations of the bathrooms and a resurfacing of exterior panels. "Inside we have done electrical upgrades, we replaced the air conditioning and upgraded the bathrooms." said Associate Vice President for Plant and Operations Holly Sterneckert. "We did the things that have to do with the building's infrastructure; things that will give it a longer life." To install a new air conditioning unit, the system was shut down for the summer. Special, licensed contractors removed the asbestos, an insulating material used in the 1960s but later found to be a health hazard if disturbed. Professors and department administrators moved from AH to the Schlumberger offices at University Park during the summer. Many professors hardly unpacked their boxes in their new offices at Schlumberger since their stay was so short. The Agnes Arnold Hall renovation was part of a series of renovations scheduled for the next five or six years for many campus buildings. In 1995, ISES and 3D/International did a $500,000 audit of campus building conditions at UH-Clear Lake, UH-Downtown and the main UH campus. The audit then prioritized different maintenance works needed on campus, and UH will address those requiring the most attention. HEAF approved UH's $72 million maintenance program for the next few years. The Optometry building and Science and Research building may also receive renovations. August
