In conjunction with the work being done at Bldg. 130 CPFM Warehouse restroom remodel, Delta Sand & Gravel is performing excavation in the breezeway today (1/29) which extends several feet into the asphalt roadway behind the building on the north side (see attached map). This necessitates the use of a back-hoe and dump trailer, which take up a good deal of the roadway and make it difficult to pass. Please use an alternate route to access the Mobile Equipment shop, gas pumps, and “north 40” area. This work should be concluded by 1:00p today (1/29). If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Design & Construction Project Manager, Tim Allenbaugh at 541-346-8214.

The breakroom, vending machines, and key-boxes will remain accessible for the duration of the project (See attached interior map, green indicates safe passage area, red indicates construction project area). A dumpster will also be placed outside the rollup door and will impact parking the immediate vicinity (see yellow area on the attached satellite map).

Users should expect typical construction noises and disruptions throughout the project. Notices of specific project updates and utility shutdowns will follow. They will include temporary interruptions of water and power to the building for limited duration.

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.
