The Faculty Building Advisory Committee (FBAC) met eight times during
the academic year and will continue to meet as necessary during the summer
months. With the exception of a student representative, Mr. Schwartz,
who failed to participate in any of these meetings, all members of the
committee are acknowledged for their commitment of time and energy to
the activities of the FBAC during this year.
||Erwin Center and Basketball Practice Facility: This completed
project was critiqued through an on-site inspection. No additional
||Hotel and Conference Center: The FBAC reviewed data regarding
location and appropriateness of the facility planned to accommodate
visitors to The University and to provide high-quality space for
conferences. Recommendations regarding this project were provided
to the president.
||Dormitory: The FBAC and its Master Plan Subcommittee
have been deeply involved in the planning for a new residential
facility on university property at the north end of Whitis Avenue.
Recommendations regarding this project have been provided to the
president and the design of the facility is under on-going review.
||Pavilion: A proposal from the UT Ex-Students Association
for construction of an open-air, covered pavilion to the north
of the present facility was reviewed and critiqued by the FBAC
and its Master Plan Subcommittee. Recommendations regarding this
project were provided to the president.
|| Welch Hall Patio: The Master Plan Subcommittee of the
FBAC critiqued plans for an outdoor project on the southwest corner
of Welch Hall and made recommendations regarding the pergolas associated
with it that were implemented.
||Plaza Project for Graduate School of Business: The Master
Plan Subcommittee of the FBAC critiqued plans for an outdoor project
on the south edge of the Graduate School of Business. The recommendations
made by it for this project are being implemented.
||Ad hoc committees: An important responsibility of the
FBAC continues to be providing representation on ad hoc committees
involved in the programming and design phases of major construction
projects, including both renovations and new buildings. There currently
is active participation on committees for the following projects:
Scarbrough Property Dormitory, Gregory Gymnasium Aquatics Complex,
Guadalupe Street Reconstruction, Experimental Science Building
Renovation, PAC Fire and Life Safety, Welch Hall Infrastructure
Evaluation, Biomedical Engineering Building, Child Care Facility.
At the request of the president, the FBAC undertook development of a
policy to address the acquisition and placement of public artwork on
campus. This policy has been submitted to the president and is expected
to be finalized by September 2004.
