When will construction at the Kansas Union be done?
Pat Beard, the union's director of building services, said: "Our original completion date was Nov. 28, 2002. To date we have had eight change orders with an accumulative total of 103 days added to the project, which would place the completion date at March 11, 2003. Fortunately, the contractors feel that although they can legitimately claim these days, they are in hopes of completing the project by the first of January.
"We apologize for the inconvenience caused by the project, but as completion draws near, we are excited with the spaces on Level 1 and 2 that have been opened and look forward to having the Level 4 Organization & Leadership student complex completed by Oct. 21, when students return from fall break."
The $5.68 million project includes remodeled Jaybowl and Oread Books, and 6,500 square feet of office space for student organizations.
