After several months of sitework and underground utilities, UCF’s newest parking garage (Parking Garage “H”) is finally coming out of the ground. Prefabricated concrete pieces are being hoisted into place, starting with one of the stairwells as you can see above.
Here is a shot of one of the precast pieces arriving at the jobsite. There will be a steady stream of flatbeds carrying these pieces one-by-one to the jobsite as they are needed.

Next time you’re on campus (hopefully for the football home opener on 9/4), look up! Crews are upgrading the traffic signals at McCulloch Rd and Orion Blvd (or McCulloch/Lockwood depending on which approach you are coming from). Instead of being mounted to “span wires”, the new signals will be installed on much stronger “mast arms”. Although not required by FDOT at inland locations, many municipalities like Seminole County are upgrading mast arms to improve strength; these types of systems can withstand winds of over 100mph. They don’t look too bad, either.

Chick-Fil-A in the John T. Washington Center has been closed all summer for some major renovations. The seating area will be expanded to accommodate more guests, and the menu will be expanded as well. The “brand refresh” project will cost almost $400,000 and should complete later this year.

PPI is set to complete the Physical Sciences Phase II project sometime next month (September). Since our last update, you can see that the installation of the aluminum panels on the exterior of the building is ongoing, and interior finishes are likely well underway.
