Campus Users,

On Thursday, February 22nd, from 8:00 am until 2:30 pm, the south side of Straub, SRC, and LLC may be impacted by noise related to the removal of a Norway Maple tree.  Sidewalk access to the Student Rec Center from the east sidewalk on the south side of E. 15th will be closed, and East 15th Avenue will have periodic restrictions by trucks loading debris.

Old injuries to the trunk coupled with irreversible root rot fungus has resulted in the large cavity at the base of this tree. This development, when considered with the weight of the canopy above and the high traffic nature of the site necessitates its removal for pedestrian safety. The site will be re-planted in consultation with campus designers.

30 Days: Willamette Hall Collaborative Furniture Installation

Dear Building Occupants,

The Office of Design and Construction (CPFM) will be installing a temporary mock-up of collaborative furniture in the Willamette Hall Atrium. This mock-up is being installed for 30 days to help us understand how collaborative furniture groupings are used across campus. This is one of a few places that this furniture will be installed on our campus, with the intent to gather information in regards to how students in our science complex utilize collaborative and informal meeting spaces.

These furniture pieces were designed to enhance collaboration and encourage student interaction in active learning spaces. We will occasionally monitor and document student utilization and there will be a survey available via QR code to solicit student feedback on the pieces. We hope that this installation helps to advance the collaborative environment that we strive for on the University of Oregon campus.

The existing furniture in the atrium will be shifted to make room for the temporary mock-up. We do not plan to remove any existing furniture, and upon removal of the collaborative furniture, we will return all existing items to their original locations.

If you have any questions regarding this notice, please contact CPFM Design and Construction Special Projects & Design Team Manager  Maggie Kendall  (mgordon@uoregon.edu) at  541-346 -5959.
