Panhandle Center, Extension offices use temporary entrance during renovation
Posted April 5, 2013
The University of Nebraska Panhandle Research and Extension Center will remain open for business while the Center’s main building undergoes renovation for a new heating and cooling system over the next several months, but visitors will need to use a temporary entrance.
The main entrance of the Panhandle Center, on the building’s east side, will close on Monday (April 8). Signs will direct visitors to the temporary southwest entrance.
The building will receive improvements to the heating, ventilation and air conditioning system. The existing system has been in use at least since the mid-1970s, when the State of Nebraska took over ownership of the former Hiram Scott College campus.
Anderson & Shaw Construction Inc. of Scottsbluff is the general contractor on the project, which is funded by facilities funds from UNL. Work is expected to be completed in mid- to late August.
The Scotts Bluff County Extension Office also is relocating to another part of the building because of the project. A sign outside the southwest doors will tell visitors where to enter the building for both the Extension Office and the Panhandle Center. Receptionists will direct visitors to Panhandle Center faculty and staff who have relocated to temporary offices in areas that are not affected by the construction.
The Nebraska Business Development Center and the Nebraska Dry Bean Commission offices also are housed in the building, and will be accessible from the southwest entrance as well. The University of Nebraska College of Medicine Nursing School has its offices and classrooms there. The renovation project has been timed to avoid the spring and fall terms.
