Goldman School of Dental Medicine – Construction Update – 6/26/20

During the weekend of June 27:

  • On Saturday, the fire protection system will be shut down from 5 a.m. to 9 a.m. in order for crews to remove older equipment that has now been replaced (Phase 2) on the fifth floor.
  • On Saturday, fireproofing will also be sprayed on existing steel to patch areas needing to be filled in after demolition in the bathrooms on floors four through seven, and in the existing fifth-floor renovation area.

During the week starting June 29:

  • There will be no night-shift work this week.
  • The decorative planters at GSDM’s Albany Street and East Newton Street entrances will be filled with new plantings this week.
  • Installation of the Boston Transportation Department traffic light at the corner of Albany and East Newton Streets will continue through July 6.
  • Drilling is now complete for the storm-water recharge wells. Excavation and installation of piping to the wells will continue along Albany Street through early July.
  • Inside the building, installation of new framing for the existing bathrooms will resume on the fifth floor. Plumbing piping will be installed in the fourth-floor bathrooms this week, and will continue upward through bathrooms on the remaining three floors. Installation of overhead piping, ductwork, and wiring will resume in the third-floor bathrooms in advance of inspections scheduled for the middle of the week.
  • Please consult these additional resources as needed:
    • GDSM COVID-19 information: http://www.bu.edu/dental/covid-19-information/. This webpage is a repository of all communications issued to the school community by the GSDM leadership. It also includes links to the Boston University and Boston University Medical Campus COVID-19 websites.

Please be sure to note all directional signage and markings within the building as you navigate in and around GSDM. Circulation is being revised due to construction and to the need for proper social distancing as the school re-opens; these actions align with the COVID-19 guidelines issued by state regulatory agencies and Boston University.

We hope that you remain safe and healthy. As always, your safety is imperative!
