The University is seeking proposals from qualified vendors to provide kitchen renovations for west campus housing.
The existing kitchen cabinets and vanities in the apartments have reached the end of their effective life. Repair of the pressboard construction and plastic laminate finish is becoming more frequent in recent years. The plastic laminate counter tops are delaminating from the cabinets and vanities, and the pressboard construction of the cabinets is gradually disintegrating. The kitchen cabinet replacement program will involve replacing the kitchen cabinets with waterproof plywood construction and solid acrylic counter tops and vanities to ensure a longer life cycle. New water lines will also be provided to supply ice makers for the new refrigerators, water valves for sinks and vanities will also be replaced and receptacles for electric stoves will need upgrading.
