U-Store set to begin renovations next month

After more than a year of delays, Borough authorities have approved plans for a large-scale renovation to the U-Store building.The first phase of the project ? the construction of an additional elevator and an extended-hours convenience store ? will tentatively begin March 6, according to U-Store Director of Operations John Augustine.Renovation of the U-Store has been postponed repeatedly because of concerns about the load capacity of the third floor, which under the store's new design will house textbooks and much of the inventory currently located on the ground floor.Rudolph Pedicini, co-consultant for Professional Plan Examiners of Union, N.J., said his organization was contracted by the Borough to ensure that the U-Store's renovation plans complied with building codes.To address concerns about the third floor's weight-bearing capacity, PPE brought in a structural engineer to determine if the store's infrastructure was capable of supporting the books that will be housed on the 10,000-sq.

Engineers construct 'Innovation'
