Series III: Large Projects

Series Description

The Large Projects series follows large projects carried out by the Office of Construction and Design and the Physical Plant. The series follows building construction for major projects such as the John E. Thomas Academic Support Building, various student housing projects, the Math/Science Complex, Brewer Stadium improvements, parking areas, the Chancellor's Residence, and the Steam Plant/Boiler Plant. It contains items such as photographs, submittals, drawings and schematics, product samples, financial records, project timelines, field reports, change orders, and correspondence. Each project is arranged alphabetically and then chronologically.

The Steam Plant/Boiler Plant project was carried out in two phases, concurrent to the early construction of Holmes Convocation Center (completed 2000).  Phase I involved the construction of a new boiler plant where one existed previously, expansion of steam lines, the creation of an equipment storage building, and the demolition of the Service Annex and Hagaman Hall.  Phase II included the construction of a new baseball park (the Jim and Bettie Smith Stadium), the realignment of Rivers Street and widening of U.S. Highway 321, and modifications of Boone Creek (Kraut Creek), which affected the development of Durham Park.
