May 24, 2001 Summer construction: Mezzanine being redesigned





by Barbara Black

The mezzanine of the Henry F. Hall Building, much used for exhibits and displays throughout the year, is undergoing a facelift.

Funded mainly by the Dean of Students Office, the reorganization for the redesign of the mezzanine has started and will continue through to August.

The upgrade includes the installation of display booths and redesign of the lighting system. While some areas will be sealed off during construction, access to the escalators, elevators, travel agency, Java U and Reggie’s will not be affected.

The Computer Store on the mezzanine will temporarily close—customers should go to the other store on the ground floor of the McConnell Building—but when the refit is finished, it will be back on the mezzanine, near the elevators.

The Tim Horton’s kiosk on the mezzanine will be relocated to the fourth floor of the Hall Building in mid-August. The Job and Housing Bank, temporarily relocated for the summer to the PR Annex at 2040 Mackay St., will return to the mezzanine after the project is completed.

For more information about this project, contact Marc-André Loignon of Facilities Planning, at mal@alcor.concordia.ca, or 848-3721.

John Fisher, also of Facilities Planning, reports that a new classroom is being constructed on the fifth floor of the Hall Building for 125 students.

In the Psychology Building at Loyola, two new research labs will be constructed by mid-June, in the PY-031 and 057 locations. John can be contacted, if necessary, at 848-3724.

The Communication Studies and Journalism Department are cleaning house as they move to temporary quarters in Hingston Hall, and they’re having a “garage sale” of still-functional equipment, including video, film and audio. Tomorrow, Friday, from 1 to 5 p.m., this equipment is on sale to members of the university community only. Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., the sale is thrown open to the public.

Henry Lemmetti, Technical Supervisor in the Department, urges prospective customers to come and haggle, not to call him.
