SUBJECT:    Construction Alert – Stuart Collection: Do-Ho Suh Art Piece Installation

Project Description/Location:
The Do-Ho Suh Art Piece installation is a sculpture that will be erected on the 7th floor-roof level of the Jacobs Building (EBU1) on the UCSD campus. Construction will commence August 7, 2011 and be completed by January 3, 2012. The “Fallen Star” sculpture consists of a house cantilevered at an angle from the corner of the building, integrated to a structural concrete slab with a roof garden on the existing building. Access to the art piece will be via the EBU1; 7th floor, and will be open to the public after completion.

Immediate Impacts:
There will be partial closures of Warren Mall during construction operations during the period August 7, 2011 through January 3, 2012 due to material and construction staging. Deliveries of materials will periodically impact the pedestrian paths on the west side of Warren Mall. Detours and signage will be provided directing pedestrians around the impacted area. Flagmen will also be present to direct pedestrian traffic during concrete pours. Updates will continue to be provided throughout the construction period.
