Shiny galvanized steel drain pipes

Shiny galvanized steel drain pipes have sprung up in six locations between the Valley Life Sciences Building and the Campanile to mark the path and progress of the $10 million campus infrastructure upgrade. Information posted on the pipes explains the project. Dennis Town, project manager; Jim Horner, campus landscape architect; and Christine Shaff, Planning, Design & Construction analyst, came up with the idea. Campus sheet metal worker Greg Rasmussen built the unusual kiosks, measuring almost 7 feet tall and 21 inches in diameter. They will move as construction progresses.
