UA Campus Construction Operational Update

UA Campus Construction Operational Update

March 27, 2020

The University of Alabama’s institutional construction along with the suppliers and contractors that support that work are exempt from the City of Tuscaloosa’s executive order instituting a 24-hour curfew.

In light of this exemption, note the following operational updates:

  • Drawing reviews and all other normal construction and renovation work on campus will continue at this time.  All pay apps and invoicing also continue as normal.
  • Currently, the University is experiencing no interruption in inspection services. Should there be an interruption or a delay in inspection services, UA will use in-house staff or rely on our architectural and engineering partners to provide inspections.
  • The University continues to provide all requested all line locates and shutdowns. Contractors should continue following the University’s standard operating procedure for those activities.
  •  The University is working closely with the City of Tuscaloosa to provide passes for our partners to facilitate access to campus. Once the process is in place, we will update you as to how to get those passes.

Along with emails, all updates are posted online at
