    Administration Building repairs scheduled to begin July 5

    Northwest Missouri State University has announced its general contractor will begin preparation for initial phases of the Administration Building’s window replacement and structural repair project Tuesday, July 5.

    The repairs will address the building’s windows, lintels and gable end walls. Northwest anticipates the project to continue through late spring 2017 with the initial phase focusing on demolition and replacement of the south gable above the west wing and other structural repairs.

    Preparation for the work will include setting up and expanding protection zones, establishing staging areas, and delivery of materials and equipment. Employees and visitors to the building are urged to look for caution zones while the work is taking place.

    The University’s Board of Regents in May authorized Northwest to move forward with repairs to the historic structure and execute a contract with E.L. Crawford Construction Inc., not to exceed $3.4 million.

    The repairs are funded, in part, through nearly $6.9 million awarded to Northwest through Building Affordability, an initiative of Gov. Jay Nixon in collaboration with public colleges and universities that the General Assembly passed last year. State legislators passed an additional $1 million in appropriations this spring to assist with the Administration Building repairs.

    Northwest will replace all windows in the Administration Building, totaling 326. The building opened in 1910 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
