PLASTERER DAN MILLER works on a wall at University Health Service as
part of a construction project that is helping the building conform to state fire
marshall's fire safety standards. Building officials say the renovations should
be completed by late July.
'U'Health Service
being renovated

If you walk into the University's
Health Service building during the next
month, don't be surprised to see extra
people working around the building.
Health Services"Information Clerk
Sharon Bonanni said the construction
work, which began May 1 and is
scheduled for completion by late July,
is being done "to meet (the state) fire
marshall's standards."
BONANNI SAID the reconstruction
work is divided :into several phases.
New, fireproof wooden doors will
replace the old wooden doors. The old
doors didn't conform to current state
fire standards, Bonanni said.
Health Services chief administrator
Dana Mills says the new doors will be
able to containa fire for one-and-a-half
to two hours - longer than the old
Bonanni said the new "composition"
wood, has been tested by the state for
fire-containing ability.
The new doors will be placed where
traditional fire hazards have been
found in buildings; in storage rooms,
corridors, and places where "there's a
lot of paper," Mills said.
PART TWO of the project -involves
installing around 40 automatic
sprinklers per floor, said Bruce Martin
of Ann Arbor's Boone and Darr con-
struction company, one of two local

firms involved in the project.
Bonanni said there will be three elec-
tronic devices connecting the
sprinklers system to the University's
Safety Department so they will be im-
mediately notified ifa fire breaks out.
Mills said "standpipes" also will be
installed on each floor.
STANDPIPES, HE explained, are a
series of six-inch diameter pipes run-
ning through the middle of the
building's walls and sides. They will
feed water to firefighter's hoses in hose
cabinets at three locations on each floor
for a total of 15.
George Selim, the project's manager,
said the current cost of the state-funded
construction is $268,069. But he said he
thinks that cost will rise as more-work
is done. Most of the work is finished,
Selim added. However, he said that he
would be "surprised" if the cost ex-
ceeded $275,000.
Mills said even though the construe-
tion work has been "a big staff incon-
venience," normal operations have not
been disrupted. He said he has received
no complaints frome patients.
"The patients have been good. They
realize we're going through code com-
pliance time."
