Humanities Building Construction

The Humanities Building (formerly Ryland Hall) is undergoing a full building renovation and addition to become the updated home of many of the Humanities, including English, History, Classics, and Philosophy. Also included is a new Humanities Commons and a new exterior courtyard space. The building is getting a significant accessibility upgrade with the addition of an elevator and a new main entrance off of the ground level. The below map highlights the construction zone and the resulting temporary changes to pedestrian and vehicle traffic through the entire project. The project is scheduled to be completed in the fall of 2021.

Campus Electrical Distribution Project

The work to upgrade the electrical distribution on campus is necessary to convert the University’s antiquated 4,160-volt electrical grid into a 35,000-volt bi-directional grid, ensuring a reliable system and redundancy capabilities to minimize the impact of power outages on campus. This first phase of the multiyear project began in winter 2018 in coordination with Dominion Energy. Over winter break 2019, Dominion Energy completed their work at the substation located between the Steam Plant and the Wilton Center.  Phase 1 concluded early Winter 2021 with the installation of raceway and cable from the Dominion Energy Substation to the Queally Athletic / Well Being Center. Currently underway (Spring of 2021), Phase 2 completion will close the bi-directional loop on the Richmond College side of campus and provide electrical service to 14 University buildings.  Electrical shutdowns are tentatively planned to occur during time frames least impactful to campus including nights, weekends, and breaks. These planned outages will be communicated by University Facilities.
