Seeking Feedback for Pacific Hall and Columbia Hall Power Outage over Winter Break

Primary Building Occupants,

During winter break it is necessary for Campus Planning and Facilities Management to replace a failing transformer that services Pacific Hall and Columbia Hall.  The transformer has failed three oil sampling tests showing contaminates during routine inspections.  The conclusion is that the transformer must be replaced.  This will require a normal power outage on an upcoming Saturday during winter break. Standby power will not be affected.

We are proposing Saturday, December 15th, 2018 to limit the impact to the building occupants.

Design and Construction will be contacting each building group to review the planned shutdown and specific considerations for each space.

Please submit all feedback to CPFM Design and Construction Nick Pritchard  541-346-9139

Reminder About Seasonal Building Steam Management

Building Occupants,

A standard operating procedure (SOP) has been established for systematically managing steam serving specific buildings on a seasonal basis. This process has substantially reduced thermal comfort complaints by minimizing overheating in late spring. Certain building spaces have had issues due to radiant heat emanating from active steam lines within the building footprint. The whole building (or a space within a building) may not be calling for heat, but the steam piping is still active up to the main control valve. The specific list of buildings include: Chapman, Collier House, Condon, Deady, Esslinger, Friendly, Gerlinger, Hendricks, Lokey Education (east), Lokey Education (west), Music (radiators only), Mac Court (radiators only), Susan Campbell, and Villard.

As springtime temperatures moderate, Mechanical Shop personnel systematically turn the steam off to each building when the nighttime outside air temperature is above 50 degrees for five (5) consecutive nights AND the daytime temperature is above 70 degrees for five (5) consecutive days.

Conversely, as fall temperatures get cooler, steam will be turned on to each building when the nighttime outside air temperature is below 50 degrees for five (5) consecutive nights AND the daytime temperature is below 70 degrees for five (5) consecutive days.
