1970s building facade
The Alumni Center is being demolished over the next eight months. Parking access to Lot 38 will be limited to 50 spaces on the Chafee Avenue side of the property.

Abatement and demolition of Alumni Center begins this week

The abatement and demolition of the former Alumni Center (building FI) at 919 15th St. will begin July 2 on the Augusta University Health Sciences Campus. The project will take about eight months to complete.

Construction fencing will be installed around the perimeter first, reducing parking capacity in Lot 38 to 50 spaces on the backside of the building. Additionally, the 15th Street entrances to this lot will be closed for the duration of the project, so staff who park in Lot 38 will need to enter and exit from Chafee Avenue. Medical center employees may continue to use the lot through July 31.

Access to adjacent buildings and lots will remain open, and the fencing is being positioned to help ensure appropriate separation and safety between construction areas and staff parking.

As shared in a previous Jagwire article, Philanthropy & Alumni Engagement has relocated to Professional Building 1, and Compliance has moved to Annex I.

After the Alumni Center building has been demolished and removed, the space will be converted into additional campus parking. The timeline for the completion of the parking project has not been finalized.
