Classes relocate due to construction noise

Construction noise has been distracting some students and professors.

Construction crews were able to stop work when classes started earlier in the semester because the sun rose earlier. Now they have to work through the morning to stay on schedule, said Jack Burns, director of Campus Planning and Facilities.

“Construction noise will last throughout the semester, unfortunately,” Burns said. “Different days will bring different noise levels.”

Psychology professor Melissa Grey said there are times that the noise disrupts her classroom.

“We wait to see if it stops, or move to another place,” Grey said.

She said students have told her they cannot take a test because the noise was too loud.

One of her classes is moving to another building for the rest of the semester, she said.

Grey said the administrative assistants in the divisions work with Mary Lyons, coordinator of Room Reservations, to find rooms that are available.

Burns said professors should call him if the noise gets too loud.

He will call the contractor, and the construction workers will go work on something else, he said.

“The professors in the Life Sciences Building have been doing a really good job of letting me know when they are having an important test or presentation in advance,” Burns said.

That gives Burns time to coordinate with the site superintendent, who plans the work for his crews accordingly.
