The Kansas Board of Regents on Thursday will consider plans for two building projects at Kansas University with a budget of nearly $10 million.

At the board's 9 a.m. meeting in Topeka, regents are scheduled to review final plans for a $1.9 million effort to improve fire safety in Allen Fieldhouse.

KU officials will seek approval for construction of exits from "crow's nest" bleachers of the fieldhouse, new stairs from the second level to the first level, a bridge corridor from Allen to Parrott Athletic Center and more seating for fans who have disabilities.

In February, regents endorsed installation of a fire sprinkler system for the fieldhouse.

Regents plan to review preliminary plans for the fourth and final phase of the $8 million renovation of Parrott Athletic Center, which is between Anschutz Sports Pavilion and the fieldhouse.

This phase of the Parrott project would cost $870,000 and would allow renovation of the old football locker room and training room for baseball, completion of the James Naismith Society Room, expansion of a corridor west of the fieldhouse and construction of restrooms.

Regents endorsed the Parrott renovation project in 1991. Work on the $1.4 million third phase is nearly complete, regents' staff said.
