Mini-Dome will undergo construction

ETSU's Mountain States Health Alliance Athletic Center will be undergoing construction this summer.
Construction to replace the Mini Dome's roof will begin on May 15, according to Bill Rasnick Jr., associate vice president of facilities planning, management and construction.
"The Dome still has the original roof that was installed in 1977," Rasnick said. "The current roof has leaked for many years and is in need of replacement."
Rasnick said that the construction on the roof is estimated to take somewhere about seven months to complete.
"Much of the roof replacement work will be completed by Aug. 15, but the project itself will not be finalized until November 2014," Rasnick said.
According to Rasnick, the cost of the roof replacement project is about $4 million.
"The funding for the roof replacement is state capital maintenance dollars," Rasnick said.    
Other Facilities Management projects that are scheduled to occur over the summer include repaving the parking lot at Luntsford Apartments, replacing windows in several campus buildings, and replacing the lighting in several campus buildings. A full list of Facilities Management's major projects, along with details regarding progress and estimated budgets for each project, can be found on the ETSU facilities home page.
The Mini Dome's current roof has long been in need of replacement.
"The normal life of this type of roof system is 20 years so we have more than surpassed the roof's useful life," Rasnick said.
But Rasnick said that the plans for this project have been a priority for some time now.
"The Dome roof replacement project has been a priority for many years," Rasnick said. "The funding and technology have both been issues in the past. We are fortunate to receive the state capital maintenance dollars for this project and are excited to get the work started."
