Summer 2017: Friendly Hall Transformer Replacement

Building Occupants,

An upcoming project that will occur this summer is the replacement of the existing transformer located on the west side of Friendly Hall.  The new transformer will be located in the same position as the existing transformer.  The transformer is in a prominent position since the west side of the building is the main entrance and looks out upon the open quad space.  We met with UO representatives from campus planning and landscaping to try and mitigate the visual impact since the new transformer is 20” taller than the existing one.   The height of the new transformer is slightly lower than the existing exterior window sill so it will not impact the view of the open space beyond.

Unfortunately there are no alternatives to relocating the transformer to another location or for a smaller unit.  Our tests show the transformer is degrading rapidly and needs to be replaced this summer.  Since the new transformer is taller than the existing one being replaced, our intent is to mitigate any visual impact with landscaping around the transformer while maintaining safe working access around the transformer for CPS staff.

We will update this notice once a schedule has been put into place.

For questions or concerns about how this may impact your area, contact Dale Stadler, Campus Planning and Facilities Management (CPFM) Design and Construction at 346-8251.
