Construction crews spent most of June and July at the Kelce College of Business restoring masonry and removing aging pieces of the exterior, including the retaining wall on the east side of the building.
“It’s important to maintain our buildings as they age,” said Paul Stewart, director of facilities planning. “Kelce is an older building, but these steps should ensure the integrity of the exterior.”
The summer construction is the latest in a string of improvements to the building that have included exterior window replacement as well as limited interior renovations and infrastructure improvements.
Future plans include a full study to help improve drainage issues within the building.
