▲ Installing common ducts under the Baebongtang crossroad
The Office of School Facilities has completed two months repairing flagstones at the Main Gate and installing underground ducts under the Baebongtang crossroad. Work on the flagstones began in March and finished at the end of April. Construction around Baebongtang began on Feb. 12 and completed on May 19, in time before the university festival on the day after.

Flagstones at the Main Gate had suffered damage from passing vehicles, mostly heavy ones used in construction of a new building for the Dept. of Music. Each flagstone is 5cm wide, 25cm shorter than those at Gwanghwamun Square. Sung-ha Park, head of civil engineering for the project, cited some problems with the new flagstones: at this narrow width, they will not remain intact for more than two or three years. The constraints were dictated by a limited budget, Park added. There are other issues with the installation, as well: the period for curing the concrete, during which concrete is protected from loss of moisture and kept at a satisfactory temperature, was reduced to speed the project’s completion and minimize inconvenience to students.

The ducts under the Baebongtang crossroad will shorten distances from that point to buildings around campus. The ducts contain many kinds of pipelines, except for gas. Fewer than half of the buildings on campus have independent boilers, and most have to pull hot water from other buildings through these ducts. The previous route ran from Student Hall to Student Dormitory and International House with a detour at Changgong Hall, resulting in longer times for hot water to reach its destinations. “The more ducts, the better because circulation is essential for safety in the future,” Park said.

Other construction plans include building of Centennial Hall in celebration of the university’s 100th anniversary in 2018, but no concrete plans have yet been revealed.
