First, we learned that the big A400 building project ran into a fubar that will cause a significant delay in occupancy. According to Roquemore,
Rain on 5/8/2015 and subsequent rain events identified water intrusion issues at numerous locations on the A400 project. District staff stopped work and requested a complete water intrusion report prior to further construction on the exterior envelope. After much negotiation, the contractor has indicated their decision to remove the exterior finishes and reinstall a new exterior system.The upshot: “the building will not be available in time for the Spring semester.”
Removal will include demolition of the brick and plaster walls leaving the exterior studs clean and ready to receive the new exterior façade and window system. The contractor will provide additional staffing to ensure quality control and a watertight system.
“District staff,” he writes, “would be in a position to provide an update at the end of July.” Well, since it’s already August, it’s hard to say quite what that means. Perhaps he means July, 2016. Could be.

We get the usual biographical factoids. The email ends remarkably, however:
