Enhancing your experience.
ASI is always working to enhance our managed facilities to better meet the needs of students and the Cal Poly community.
Projects are funded by financial reserves and do not impact student fees.
The ASI Poly Escapes Climbing Park will undergo routine maintenance from Nov. 6, 2022, through the beginning of winter quarter 2023. Though the Climbing Park is in good shape, maintenance is essential to making sure ASI facilities are up to the standards that our guests expect and deserve. This refresh will provide climbers with new routes and the latest weathering features for Climbing Wall.
During this project, the Climbing Park’s EP Climbing (EPUSA) routine inspection and facility certification will open the door for several new facility features:
- Professional implementation of new handholds and climbing routes
- Installation of protective mesh atop the Climbing Tower to ensure protection from birds.
For the duration of the project, the Climbing Park will be fenced off and inaccessible. Currently, the project is expected to be completed by early winter quarter 2023. The ASI Poly Escapes Rental Center will be open during the project.
CLOSED DURING PROJECT?
Yes. (The Rental Center will be open)
Nov. 6, 2022, through the beginning of winter quarter 2023 (~2 months)
A new sprinkler system will be installed in the Julian A. McPhee University Union starting winter 2022. As a student hub on campus, the University Union serves hundreds of students every day; and with responsibility for the safety of those students—and all campus community members—the University Union must undergo a comprehensive upgrade and installment of its sprinkler system. The renewal of the facility’s fire sprinkler system will ensure the safety of all students, staff, and campus community members that utilize the University Union.
A modernized, robust fire sprinkler system that will fortify the University Union’s safety features and assure its patrons of their well-being.
During this phase of the project, the second floor of the University Union will see considerable impacts and closures throughout areas of the facility. Wayfinding signage will be available at all entrances and exits. Though conference rooms and offices will be closed and blocked off, the restrooms and elevator on the second floor of the University Union will remain accessible via a construction tunnel.
