NOTICE: On Saturday, June 7th, 2008 from 7:00 AM until 6:00 PM, the contractor will be core drilling the floor on the 6th Floor of the Lions/LSU Clinic 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 Clinic 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 or 6 during the above times.  Furthermore, we strongly recommend that no one plan on occupying any floor in the Lions/LSU Clinic Building during these hours.   This work will provide the expanded infrastructure needed in this building.
