Lift installation to mean some noise in law school

Although the installation of accessibility lifts in the Ron W. Ianni Law Building this summer will result in some construction noise, the loudest work will take place after hours, promise contractors.

The construction started July 18 and will affect the open areas on the building’s first and second floors, as well as room MG11. It will wrap up by the end of August. The loudest work will be restricted to the hours after 4:30 p.m.
