The construction near the University of Iowa’s Campus Recreation & Wellness Center is ahead of schedule and below budget.

The project is part two of a three-phase plan with three goals: to add extra electrical capacity to campus, to give electrical service to the new School of Music facility, and to increase redundancy in order to safeguard against outages on campus. 

Phase two is expected to be finished between mid-May and June 1. So far, the weather has cooperated.

“Right now, we are on schedule, if not a little ahead,” said Chet Wieland, the project manager.

The project runs from the substation on Capitol Street up to Court Street and then to the UI Power Plant.

The anticipated budget was $1.2 million. However, Wieland said the project is at about $950,000.

UI Facilities Management also worked to avoid the main entrance of the Rec Center.

“We took that into consideration,” Wieland said.
