    6. 6. . . . A COMPLEX PROJECT. . . . PROJECT PHASES: Phase One: March 1-May 1, 2013 The renovation of the lower level of Kellner and the relocation of Information Services. Student Life offices and activities will continue uninterrupted on the main floor. Phase Two: Late May-Late August, 2013 Demolition and reconstruction of lower two levels of Walker Hall; installation of exterior ramp for accessibility; installation of elevator that will service both Walker and the Megaron; installation of new HVAC system; installation of new restrooms on each of the top three floors. [During the 2013-2014 academic year, we will have full use of the top three floors in Walker, but we will have no access to the bottom two floors. We will use temporary spaces to accommodate the arts classes and other school functions that normally take place on these levels.] Phase Three: Late May-Late August, 2014 Demolition and reconstruction of classroom and office spaces; installation of new windows; installation of building systems.

    11. 11. WHAT CAN WE LEARN FROM A PROJECT LIKE THIS?
    12. 12. BALANCING AND PRESERVING . . . • The Walker Project symbolizes the essence of an action-oriented, real-world education (we are making a difference in terms of creating a greener future) • Preserving the building is part of our attempt at creating a sense of place, a sense of community
    13. 13. AND—MOST IMPORTANT—A SENSE OF CONTINUITY As President Kennedy said in his inaugural address more than 50 years ago. . . “the torch has been passed to a new generation.”
    14. 14. THE BUILDING SYMBOLIZE THE IDEAL OF The Walker Project is the embodiment of that commitment to the vitality and success of WA’s students—now and in the future— and a tradition of molding good citizenship.
