Dental Tower Improvement Project: Cast Iron Pipe Replacement from March 6 thru September 29 on floors 4-11

PPD is beginning a comprehensive improvement project in the dental tower. They have contracted with Charles Perry Partners, Inc. (CPPI) to replace all of the cast iron pipes in the dental tower on Floors 4 – 11. If it sounds like a big project, that’s because it is! But they will take it one day at a time and will coordinate with each area as they progress. They are still working out some of the details for scheduling so please keep in mind that some things may change. But, for now, this is what we know:

  • The project will start on the north end of the 11th floor (elevators 18 and 19) on March 6.
  • They are planning on working 24 hours a day (excluding weekends) with a large portion of the work to be completed from 6pm to 6am.
  • CPPI will be scheduling work inside labs and offices as necessary. They are aware that some of the labs have very sensitive equipment and will take that into consideration.

This is going to be a very fluid project with a lot of moving parts. We realize that this will cause some inconvenience for many of you but we’re happy to see these improvements in the works for our dental tower, so we appreciate your patience.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Charles Lesch, or 352-273-8001.
