Hayward Field Renovation Odor Advisory due to Hot Rubber Installation

Facilities Liaisons,

As part of the Hayward Field Renovation hot rubber installation starts Thursday, April 18, 2019. There will be an odor associated with this hot waterproofing application.

It is challenging to have a planned duration for this advisory due to the weather sensitivity of the application. The hot rubber cannot be applied when raining. Hoffman Construction is estimating this activity may continue off and on for two months pending weather.

Reminder About Seasonal Building Steam Management

Facilities Liaisons,

A standard operating procedure (SOP) has been established for systematically managing steam serving specific buildings on a seasonal basis. This process has substantially reduced thermal comfort complaints by minimizing overheating in late spring. Certain building spaces have had issues due to radiant heat emanating from active steam lines within the building footprint. The whole building (or a space within a building) may not be calling for heat, but the steam piping is still active up to the main control valve. The specific list of buildings include:

AAA Studios

Agate Hall (gym/auditorium space)

Cascade Annex

Chapman Hall

Collier House

Columbia Room 154

Condon Hall

Deady Hall

Esslinger Hall

Friendly Hall

Gerlinger Hall

Hendricks Hall

Huestis Hall (heat exchanger HEX-3 only for fin tube radiators)

Lokey Education (east)

Lokey Education (west)

McArthur Court (radiators only)

Millrace Woodshop

Frohnmayer Music (radiators only)

Onyx Bridge 169/170, 72/90

PLC hydronic radiators

Portions of Lawrence Hall (primarily studios)

Susan Campbell Hall

Villard Hall

Volcanology

As springtime temperatures moderate, Mechanical Shop personnel systematically turn the steam off to each building when the nighttime outside air temperature is above 50 degrees for five (5) consecutive nights AND the daytime temperature is above 70 degrees for five (5) consecutive days.

Hayward construction will cause traffic changes on East 15th

https://around.uoregon.edu/content/hayward-construction-will-cause-traffic-changes-east-15th

AtO March 22, 2019 – 9:31am

Starting April 10, construction on the two-year transformation of Hayward Field and East 15th Avenue will affect access to the Student Recreation Center, UO Psychology Clinic in Straub Hall and Earl Hall.

Access to East 15th Avenue will be fenced off at Onyx Street, and Onyx will have only one lane of traffic heading south.

A portion of the vehicle and bicycle parking on East 15th Avenue next to the Rec Center will be removed as part of the project, but access to the Rec Center’s main entrance on the north side of East 15th will be maintained. Vehicle access to the Rec Center will be via East 15th Avenue and Onyx, while East 15th will be restricted to westbound traffic only. Signs throughout the area will direct pedestrians to detours.

Patrons will be able to enter the psychology clinic via Straub Hall’s main doors on the west side of the building. Residents of Young and Stafford halls within Earl Hall will be able to reach the south-facing doors of those buildings by a fenced pathway that hugs the south side of Straub and Earl. The pathway will not allow access to East 15th Avenue or Onyx Street.

While parking spaces on Onyx Street will not be affected, users will need to access the psychology clinic by following signs around the north and west sides of Straub. Patrons with disabilities will be directed along an accessible route.

The street work will last into fall. The East 15th Avenue transformation will progress eastward, allowing access to the Rec Center, Straub and Earl once again from the Onyx Street area, as portions of the project are completed. Access to the psychology clinic should return to normal by late June.

Closures, detours and access details are shown on a project map at the campus map site.

“We’ve pushed schedules and plans to take campus needs into consideration as much as we can, given the demands of the projects,” said Mike Harwood, associate vice president for campus planning and facilities management. “We reached out to the affected users to come up with the best workarounds that conditions give us. Our partner departments have been very helpful in letting us know their priorities.”

“We know this is challenging for users of these buildings,” Harwood said, “but ultimately the transformation of 15th Avenue into a nonmotorized mall is going to be great for all the student, faculty and staff pedestrians and cyclists that use this area so heavily.”

Construction workers and equipment will now enter and leave the site from both East 15th Avenue at Agate Street and the Onyx gate on the west side of East 15th, leaving campus via University Street.
