NOTICE: On Saturday, May 10th and Sunday, May 11th from 7 AM until 6 PM each day, a contractor will be core drilling the floors on 6 and 7 in the Lions/LSU Clinics Building.  Core drilling is the process of drilling holes large enough for pipes to be run through a concrete slab.  In the case of the Lions/LSU Clinics Building, the slab is a post-tension type.  Drilling through a post-tension slab can be dangerous.  Therefore, no one is allowed to occupy floors 5, 6 or 7 during the above times.  Furthermore, we strongly recommend that no one plan on occupying any floor in the Lions/LSU Clinics Building during these hours.  This work will provide the expanded infrastructure needed in this building related to the permanent repairs and mitigation project.
