Summer officially begins tomorrow, but progress on Cabra Hall’s refurbishment is already red hot!
As we discussed in a previous post, many refurbishment projects are underway on campus, primarily in Biever Hall and Cabra Hall.
At Cabra Hall, located on Loyola’s Broadway Campus, next to the Broadway Activities Center and Visual Arts building, a few major projects are moving forward, to be completed in time for students’ return to campus in August 2011.
The exterior of the building is currently being power-washed, and will look like an entirely new facility when complete. In fact, plans to paint the exterior of the building were cancelled when we saw the amazing difference that the power-washing has made already on parts of the building.
Colors for doors and window louvers are currently being selected. Exterior doors to residential suites and exterior window louvers are receiving a fresh coat of paint. The color will complement the beautiful burgundy trim that was recently added to neighboring Greenville Hall.
Flooring in all residential suites has been removed at this time, and brand new carpeting will be installed shortly.
Walls within all residential suites are being prepped at this time for re-painting.
And finally, new shower stalls are being installed in all bathrooms! The newer style showers will make them easier to clean and maintain, and will offer a more modern, clean look to Cabra Hall bathrooms.
