Renovation project underway at UConn’s Jaime Homero Arjona Building
A $15.4 million renovation project is underway at the Jaime Homero Arjona Building on University of Connecticut’s (UConn) Storrs campus.
The renovation project is aimed at fulfilling demand for office space for the faculty, which is currently witnessing an expansion. The transformed building will also act as a temporary home for Counseling and Mental Health Services.
The renovation project’s focus is bringing Arjona building up to modern standards, both in terms of looks and functionality. The project will include upgrades of the heating system, windows, electrical and lighting systems, as well as the installation of air conditioning. These upgraded systems are expected to be more energy-efficient than the existing systems which are being replaced. New interior finishes would be employed on ceilings with walls to be re-painted. Existing vinyl asbestos tiles will also be removed as part of the project.
The renovations are expected to be finished by 30 June 2013, with faculty occupying it over the summer. The Arjona renovation is funded by phase III of UConn 2000, a project to enhance and expand UConn that started in 1995.
