Dear NEC Family,
As we move closer to the May start date for construction of the Student Life and Performance Center, you may want to attend the April 9 Open Forum session at 2:30 PM in the St. Botolph Conference Room. Ed lesser, Mike Ryan, and a representative from Tishman Construction will be on hand to answer your questions.
REMINDER: the main entrance to the St. Botolph Building will be closing April 17 (or possibly a few days before that) in order to construct a handicapped-accessible entry way.
• During construction, you can access the building from the ground level doorway in the parking lot.
• PREP students and their families will need to use this parking lot entrance beginning Saturday, April 18.
NEW DATE FOR PARKING LOT CLOSURE: the St. Botolph parking lot, previously scheduled to close on May 1, will now be open until Monday, May 4. This means that College and Prep faculty may use the lot on May 1 and 2.
SUMMER WORK: Construction crews will complete accessibility upgrades in the St. Botolph Building. These include one handicapped-accessible restroom on each floor. The work will not be as disruptive as last year’s sprinkler project.
