|Chiller Plant Construction to Impact Lot 3 Exit Flow|
|Friday, June 10 2011|
This month, workers will resume the second phase of construction to expand the existing chiller plant located to the west of the Saunders Research Building. Because of this project -- a 6,000 square foot addition to the current facility -- Lot 3 parkers will notice some slight changes in the coming weeks.
In mid-June, crews will begin mobilizing and fencing off a work area between the existing chiller towers and the electrical substation building, reconfiguring exit flow around the substation building. While this construction will occupy a small section of our current parking surface, leaders in URMC's Parking Office anticipate maintaing ample parking for all Lot 3 permit holders -- in large part thanks to the adjacent Saunders Lot (Lot 14) opening to patients and visitors just last month.
Contstuction work on this second phase of chiller plant contruction is expected to be complete in summer 2013.
We thank you in advance for your patience as crews embark on this next phase of the chiller plant project. If you have additional questions, please call the Parking Office at 275-4524.
As health care reform challenges us to expand health insurance to cover 30 million more Americans – and improve the quality and effectiveness of that care, all on a smaller dime – traditional industry arrangements will only go so far. We sat down with URMC Chief Operating Officer Peter Robinson to make sense of how reform’s new financial incentives are rewriting relationships among players.
