Seismic renovation work beginning at Hertz Hall

– As part of UC Berkeley's comprehensive seismic safety program, Hertz Hall is undergoing seismic renovation. In addition to the seismic strengthening, important accessibility upgrades and deferred maintenance work will be done. The project includes installation of a new larger elevator, restoration of the stained glass windows and replacement of the tile roof.

Setup of the construction area around Hertz Hall will begin Tuesday, Feb. 3, with the delivery and installation of a trailer, followed by the site fencing on Wednesday, Feb. 4. The project area will include the patio and small lawn on the south side of Hertz Hall and part of the breezeway between Hertz and Morrison. Access to Morrison will not be interrupted, although the path under the breezeway will be narrowed for the duration of construction. The project is scheduled to be complete in Fall 2004.

Hours of construction will be 7 a.m.-4 p.m. weekdays. The project team will adhere to regulations concerning safety, dust, dirt, exhaust fumes and storm water runoff. If you have questions or concerns about the health and environmental impacts of campus construction, please contact UC Berkeley's Office of Environment Health & Safety at 642-3073.

Questions about this project or other campus construction should be directed to Christine Shaff in Facilities Services at 643-4793 or cshaff@cp.berkeley.edu.
