Welcome to UAA's New Construction blog

Click on this map to see a larger version.
UAA is growing and changing, and sometimes that progress requires us to adjust routines to accommodate interim developments.

In this blog, we aim to provide easy access to information about what construction is happening on campus and the best way to navigate any disruptions.

You can subscribe to an RSS feed from the blog and then you'll automatically get email updates when new information is posted. Or, you are welcome to visit here and watch the construction unfold.

First, here is a graphic that lists all the current construction projects going on at UAA. We will focus on changes at the Anchorage campus. To download a copy of the PDF click here or click on the map to view a larger online version.


What's going on in front of WFSC?

Maybe you were too busy with finals and the end of school to catch the news about the new engineering building. Here is an update from early May that covers the new construction site in front of the Wells Fargo Sports Complex.

New School of Engineering and Industry Building drawing.
On Friday, May 10,  Neeser Construction began using the South Parking Lot for construction of the new School of Engineering and Industry Building. You should expect to experience some delays in the normal course of parking near the Bookstore or WFSC Buildings.

Spirit Way will be closed (East-West) from the western building entrance of Wells Fargo Sports Complex to the eastern boundary of South Parking Lot.

Spirit Way (North-South) will remain open for access to the Bookstore, GSS and Student Union. The Wells Fargo Sports Complex and Tanaina Child Development Center can be accessed via Seawolf Drive.

Limited parking will be available on the west side of South Parking Lot; this will only be accessible via Seawolf Drive.

Employees are encouraged to park on the north side of Rasmuson Hall and the northwest side of the Wells Fargo Sports Complex.

Be alert to new pedestrian and vehicular traffic patterns. Heavy equipment and tractor-trailers will be frequenting the site, so please be aware of your surroundings.

For safety concerns related to this project, please contact John Hanson at UAA Facilities, Planning & Construction (907) 786-4900. Download a PDF of the information flyer here.
