OKLAHOMA CITY – Improvements to Bizzell Memorial Library, central campus facilities renovations, and improvements to the Harold Hamm Diabetes Center’s entrance drive are among topics to be discussed by the University of Oklahoma Board of Regents at its regular meeting Wednesday, March 27, in Oklahoma City.

The meeting will begin at 3:30 p.m. in the Peggy and Charles Stephenson Cancer Center, 800 NE 10th St., with items submitted by Cameron University and Rogers State University, followed by those submitted by OU.

The OU Board will review architectural firms under consideration to provide professional services required for Bizzell Memorial Library master planning and improvements projects. The original library building was constructed in 1929, with major building additions constructed in 1958 and 1982. The proposed master planning effort requires the services of an architectural consultant.

The Regents also will review firms under consideration to provide services for several small-sized renovation projects in Oklahoma Memorial Union and Bizzell Memorial Library. The library project involves the modernization of the lower level 1 of the Neustadt Wing to include the creation of a classroom and collaborative changeable work space. In the Union, the projects address the renovation of one area to create a modern food services market providing healthful meal, snack and beverage choices and another space to create areas for computer and electronic device sales, support and service as well as areas for workshops and collaboration for students and faculty. Plans also include general upgrades to some of the public areas of the building.

Also on Thursday, the Regents will consider awarding a contract for a project to enhance the north entrance to the Harold Hamm Diabetes Center. A vehicular drop-off area will be created to allow patients to more easily access the clinical spaces. Additionally, the project calls for the repair of the entrance walkways and replacement of driveway and sidewalk concrete to provide a more attractive approach to the building lobby.

The next meeting of the OU Board of Regents is currently scheduled for May 9 and 10 in Norman.
