UI raises possibility of broader Children’s Hospital window replacement

Cedar Rapids Gazette: In assessing the scope of faulty windows the University of Iowa discovered were installed in the $392.7 million Stead Family Children’s Hospital five years ago, officials have decided to at least replace every window in a new bridge connecting the Children’s Hospital with the main UIHC campus. Officials Wednesday also suggested the possibility they’ll need to replace all windows in the 14-story, 507,000-square-foot Children’s Hospital — not just specific non-inpatient floors, as originally thought — requiring Board of Regents approval for a “construction manager at risk” to coordinate what could be a larger project.
