The state Board of Regents approved four University of Iowa capital projects during its meeting Thursday, which will include waterproofing work for the UI Hospitals and Clinics Pappajohn Pavilion, an addition to the College of Public Health, repairs for the steam enterprise systems, and relocating the Chronic Pain Clinic and Breast Imaging Center.

• The waterproofing project will cost $2.7 million, an increase of $200,000 to repair a roof slab that led to water leaking into patient care and support facilities in the Pappajohn Pavilion exterior courtyard.

• A project for fifth floor of the College of Health Building that will cost around $3 million to $4 million and would cover nearly 12,000 square feet. The project will include meeting spaces, offices, and computer workstations. The new space will act as the administrative home for an informatics initiative announced in November 2013.

• A steam distribution project at the intersection of Riverside Drive and Grand Avenue. The line will supply steam to the UI West Campus, which includes the UIHC. Phase one of this project will cost around $8 million.

•A schematic design and budget for the Chronic Pain Clinic and Breast Imaging Center relocation. The project would cost around $4.6 million and would move both departments to the Pappajohn Pavilion.
