read with interest the article about the new Cavalier
Central (Inside UVA, April 12) and am pleased with the warm
reception of our project. I would like to be sure that other contributors
are given credit as well.
project [located in Carruthers Hall] was planned and designed
in house by the Design Group, part of Engineering and Design Services
of Facilities Planning and Construction. Amy Forbes, Allied Member
ASID, and Keith Payne, of the Design Group, produced the drawings
and details from sketches that were produced from our several
meetings with the registrar and her staff. Forbes also assisted
in the selection and specifying of the architectural finishes.
The project represents a cooperative effort among the many departments
at Facilities Management.
Leonard Spike Weeks, Mike Gibson and Jerry Moore of
Contract Administration assisted in contracting the various trades
who constructed the Cavalier Central. Danny Mawyer and the renovation
crew framed and laid out the complex geometry of the elliptical
entry. Robert Campbell and the cabinet shop built the counters
and casework. Gene Bellomy and the lock shop installed and adjusted
the hardware on all the doors. Ed Denby and the fire protection
staff wired all the new alarms and detectors. Robin Mongold, who
was hired independently by the registrar, provided furnishing
guidance and cubicle layouts for the registrars area behind
the counter and wall.
mentioned in the article, the projects success would not
have been possible without the cooperation and active involvement
of Carol Stanley, Yvonne Hubbard, Kenneth Sinarski, and their
staff. They were gracious, understanding and open to exploring
design possibilities. They should also be commended for keeping
their collective sense of humor while enduring working in a construction
zone for six months, yet maintaining their operations.
you for this opportunity to give credit where credit is due.
