Back in November, 2008 Cornell University instituted a construction pause in order to conduct a thorough review of the priority of new capital projects and maintenance projects and to re-calibrate the universityís budget. The pause is continuing and projects are currently being reviewed on a case-by-case basis. According to a statement released today by President Skorton, the information of the projects that have been approved will now be available to the public including the projects justification, purpose, and funding status; thanks to a recent resolution passed by the Faculty Senate. According the President Skortonís statement a project must be deemed critical to either the mission of the university or to the life and safety of the campus community to be approved. Additionally it must have an approved funding plan with appropriate resources identified and available. The following projects were deemed to meet this criteria and were approved today: Barton Hall Exterior Masonry Refurbishment and Roof Replacement Bradfield Hall Building Systems Upgrade Cornell Rowing Center Expansion Duffield Hall MSE Research Lab Refurbishment Electric System Upgrades KAUST-Cornell Center for Energy and Sustainability at Kimball Hall Refurbishment Kennedy Hall Landscape Architecture Studio Mezzanine Renovation MacDonald Moot Courtroom Alterations Mary Donlon Hall Elevators Upgrade Potable Water System Pipeline Construction and Pump Station Improvements Shoals Marine Lab Subsurface Water Treatment Construction Sigma Alpha Epsilon 2nd & 3rd Floor Restrooms Renovations Sigma Phi Fraternity Kitchen Renovation To get more information on any of these projects go to [[link|url=http://www.fs.cornell.edu/fs/projects/intro.cfm]]CUInfo [[end-link]]
