The Robinson Hall Replacement Project is comprised of several phases of work over the full life of the project. The schedule noted above is best estimate at this time – several things impact project timeline and schedule. The first major milestone through the design phase of this project is the approval of Preliminary Design and full funding authorization. We are currently targeting mid March of 2018 to meet this milestone. Once this is completed the final budget target for the project will be established and we will be able to move forward through completion of the construction documents and then contracting for construction of the full project scope.
As with all projects, and especially one such as this with many moving parts, there is some level of uncertainty in schedule during the early design stages. We are working to reduce uncertainty so that by Spring of 2018 we should have more reliability in projected start and completion dates.
