Driving Directions

A construction project to replace the Rackham Building’s aging copper roof is scheduled to take place May 4th through August 28th, 2015. Please be advised that construction hours will be Monday through Friday, 7:00 am to 3:00 pm. At times the work will be noisy and smelly, and it will be difficult to predict this in advance. Because the construction crew will be using the terrace to access the roof it will be closed for the summer. We are happy to schedule events during this time, we regret that construction work cannot be stopped for events.
