Building Occupants,

On Monday, January 22, 2018, from 8:00 am – 12:00 pm the Red Alder Tree on the north side of the Museum of Natural & Cultural History (MNCH) will be removed This red alder tree has, unfortunately, been infected by a phytopthera. This disease of plants causes a borderless canker on the trunk and branches that exudes a discharge that is an aesthetic issue for both the building and walkway as well as a contagion issue for other alder trees in the area.  Other alder trees on campus are infected with this disease and will be removed in the near future to attempt to limit the vector’s spread. This is regrettable but necessary.  CPFM will replant the site with a suitable species and consult with MNCH.

During this removal the sidewalk and employee entrance on the north side of the building will be temporarily closed.  There will be noise and congestion associated with this work.

For questions or concerns, please contact CPFM Arborist Becket Dechant at 505-699-700 or CPFM Landscape Supervisor Phill Carroll at 541-246-0031.

Small Project Timeline for Summer Construction

Happy New Year from Design and Construction!

Though the Winter break has just past, now is the time to start planning for any small remodel projects you might be considering in preparation for Fall Term 2018. The summer months are typically when the majority of this project size are constructed. However, depending on project complexity, it can take several months to program, design, and bid projects ahead of the 2018 summer construction season which is June 19, 2018 through September 21, 2018.

Design and Construction and our Special Projects team would like to assist you in implementing your small capital project goals. A small project has a typical project value of up to $250k of limited complexity.

Small projects may include:

–          Furniture procurement (8-10 week lead times once ordered)

–          Interior Finish Improvements & Updates (flooring, paint, and similar scope)

–          Office or small suite renovations

–          Learning Environment Improvements & Updates

–          And other projects of similar size & scope

So we can offer the best possible services to you, all projects must be submitted based on the following schedule in order to be completed this summer. Late project submission places a burden not only to our staff but to the projects that are already in the project queue; and given the current construction climate in Eugene, contractor availability may be limited as summer draws near.

 

Project Value Range* Project Submission Deadline
$100,000 – $250,000 February 1, 2018
$0 – $100,000 March 1, 2018

*For complex projects of any dollar threshold, completing the project within Summer 2018

may not be possible. A schedule determination will be made during the submittal and scoping process.

Project requests should be submitted through our online Capital Projects Initiation Form.

If you are not familiar with our project delivery process, feel free to review our on-line Project Toolkit:  https://cpfm.uoregon.edu/project-toolkit for helpful information. Also, feel free to review this and other segments of the Design and Construction and CPFM website for additional information and tools for your use.

1/6/18: Tree Removal by Lot 11 and between [FRIENDLY & COLUMBIA]

Campus Community,

On January 6, 2018, from 8:00 am – 3:00 pm Sperry Tree Care will be on site removing the Oak tree located between Friendly and Columbia.  This tree has been displaying a decline in health and vigor over recent years.  Increasingly, large sections have been dying back and sizable limbs have fallen out during minor weather events.  The University’s arborist has identified several large limbs with substantial decay issues. The tree stands over a major traffic hub for pedestrians and cars parking in the lot adjacent to Friendly hall.  The likelihood of major sections breaking out, possibly targeting the many people who could be passing during inclement weather is troubling and needs to be addressed. We have not anticipated pedestrian closures, and parking lot 11 will remain open but expect possible temporarily delays by the contractor as trucks and equipment come and go from the plaza.   There will also be noise associated with this work.

For questions or concerns please contact CPFM Tree Arborist Becket Dechant or CPFM Landscape Supervisor Phill Carroll.

Message: [STREISINGER, HUESTIS, LISB, KLAMATH & DESCHUTES] Prohibition on Feeding Wild Animals

Dear Building Users,

This is a friendly reminder of the University’s prohibition on feeding wild animals at University owned or leased locations, as described in University of Oregon’s Animal Control Policy IV.05.02. Feeding squirrels/birds and other wildlife may seem a positive and benign activity, but often attracts feral rodents. Attractive conditions for rodent populations can lead to human health concerns, and they create significant biosecurity concerns for the research animals within Terrestrial Animal Care Services. To manage these impacts of rodents and other unwanted wildlife, the University implements a robust Integrated Pest Management Program. This program focuses on eliminating conditions attractive to pests, eliminating existing pest populations, and ensuring protection of human health and the environment.

Issues with rodents and other unwanted wildlife, and feeding of wildlife, have a history of recurring in of the immediate vicinity of Streisinger Hall and the Lewis Integrative Science Building. The health of adjacent research animal colonies is critical to the success of research being performed at the University, and your assistance educating staff and students about exposures created by feeding wildlife is greatly appreciated.

Questions about the University’s Animal Control Policy and the Integrated Pest Management Program should be directed to Environmental Health and Safety.

Questions about the biosecurity impacts to research animal colonies should be directed to Terrestrial Animal Care Services.

Respectfully,

Cassandra Moseley, Senior Vice President for Research and Innovation, Institutional Official
Mike Harwood, Associate Vice President, Campus Planning & Facilities Management
Steve Stuckmeyer, Director, Environmental Health and Safety & Radiation Safety Officer
