June 21, 2013; Grand Rapids Business Journal

GR Current is the once and future West Michigan Science and Technology Initiative.

… GR Current, which runs on a grant and state initiative-funded budget of about $650,000, began in 2003 as a collaborative between the city of Grand Rapids, Van Andel Research Institute, The Right Place Inc., Grand Valley State University and Grand Rapids Community College. It has since expanded to include entrepreneurial names like Start Garden, The Factory, GR Collective, AimWest and the Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation.

Main Building to get new windows this week

Window replacement work in the Main Building will begin this week!  The contractors will have a lift along the east side of the main building today.  Tomorrow there will be two lifts.  They will be caution taping them off so students and the public will be warned of the swing radius of the lifts.

Over the next three weeks, they will be taking out and replacing all the windows in phase 1 on the east side of the building.  They will start on the second floor, then go to 5 and work their way down.   The only equipment they should have on the sidewalks is the two lifts.   At night they will be put off to the side out of the way and up in the air for safety purposes.

If you see or have issues of concern, please contact Vicky Janowiak or Scott Merlo.
