McDonnell Pediatrics Research Building north parapet wall repairs starting today, September 13 (date changed from September 12 to September 13)

Today (September 13), Western Waterproofing will start making repairs to the north parapet wall on the roof of the McDonnell Pediatrics Research Building in preparation for the roof replacement, tentatively scheduled to start the week of October 3. The work will cause some sound due to intermittent light hammering, which should last for roughly 2-3 hours only this morning (September 13). Western will also use a power washer from today (September 13) until the end of the day on Thursday, September 15. Please expect noise from the power washer in the labs below.

Also, today (September 13), the north entrance will be closed to staff and pedestrians for overhead protection but will be reopened tomorrow (September 14). All foot traffic entering or exiting MPRB must utilize the south entrance today (September 13) only. Please see the image for assistance.

If you have any questions, reach out to Antwoine Feaman, Engineering Project Manager.
