Sundt To Upgrade And Expand UA's Campus Utility Infrastructure

 

Sundt Construction has been selected to upgrade the University of Arizona’s existing infrastructure, including mechanical; electrical; telecommunications utility distribution systems; central plant heating, chilled water and portable water production; and sewer and surface drainage to support the new Engineering Innovation Building, Bioscience Research Labs, and future campus growth.

Sundt will serve as the Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR) for the project. Construction is expected to begin in late spring of 2014 and conclude in 2015.

This project will be Sundt’s 59th completed for UA. Sundt also is serving as CMAR for a new interdisciplinary research center — the Engineering Innovation Building — for the College of Engineering and is working on the university’s historic Old Main Building and Bear Down Gymnasium.

“New, high-tech development, such as the Engineering Innovation Building we will build on the UA campus next year, can place an increased demand on existing utility infrastructure systems,” said Steve Schmitt, Sundt project director.

“Our expertise on university campuses across the country — and on the University of Arizona’s campus in particular — makes Sundt the perfect partner for this project, which will help the university prepare for future success.”
