Tree Removal Notice 12/20

Campus Community,

On 12/20 Sperry Tree Care will be onsite removing an incense cedar tree. This will impact sidewalk access to the paths between Deady Hall and the west side of the old quad.

The incense cedar has unfortunately developed a considerable amount of decay behind some robust carpenter ant activity in the base of the tree. Its crown structure and live trunk are balanced upon a decreasing amount of sound wood and the tree’s proximity to frequently occupied sidewalks, benches necessitate its removal to protect life and property. This venerable veteran of North Campus has contributed positively to the atmosphere and ecology of the area for many decades and shall be missed by the University Community.

Please contact Phillip Carroll University of Oregon Landscape Maintenance Supervisor with any Questions or concerns concerning this process pcarroll@uoregon.edu

CPFM Administration Building 136 HVAC Shutdown 11/15-11/16

Campus Community,

On Thursday, November 15th from 5:00p until Friday, November 16th at 7:00a, the HVAC system for the CPFM Administration Building will be temporarily deactivated. The 2nd floor renovation of the offices of Campus Planning will necessitate the use of an airless sprayer overnight between November 15th and 16th, and as a precaution the heating and ventilation system will be shut down to ensure that the air scrubbers and negative-air filtration system capture all excess particulates. As a result, building users may experience lower than normal temperatures upon entry into the building the morning of Friday, November 16th until the HVAC system is able to return the space to its normal occupancy temperature range. There may also be a residual aroma of the Zero VOC latex paint, but it should dissipate quickly. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Design & Construction Project Manager Theo Davis at 541-346-1012.
