Building Occupants,

On August 9, 2017, from 3:30 am – 4:00 am the normal power transformer will be off at Allen Hall while Utilities and Energy make configuration changes.  The standby transformer will be off intermittently from 4:00 am – 8:00 am  while crews do testing  to determine the vector group of that transformer.  Standby work should not affect building users. The data center will be radial fed during the testing.

For questions or concerns contact CPFM Utilities and Energy Electrical Supervisor Rick Tabor at 541-346-7511.

Notice: Bean Hall Planned August Electrical Outages

Update:  Due to unforeseen conditions we have encountered during the 1st planned Bean shutdown, we need to add a 3rd shut down from August 21 – 23.  

Building Occupants,

Bean Hall will experience planned electrical outages related to construction during the following upcoming dates and times:

• August 7th starting at 7:00 am – August 8th at 5:00 pm

• August 14th starting at 7:00 am – August 17th at 5:00 pm

For questions or concerns, please contact George Bleekman, CPFM Design and Construction Owners Representative at 541-346-2625.

Invitation: Pacific Construction Electrical Shutdown Coordination Meeting 7/17/17

Building Occupants,

You are invited to a building-wide electrical shutdown coordination meeting next Monday, July 17, 2017, from 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm.

Location: Pacific 318

We will review the critical lab equipment (including environmental chambers) list we have collected and discuss the (5) major electrical shutdowns planned for the next six months. We plan to provide emergency and temporary power for critical items, but this will shut power off temporarily as the switch is made. If you have equipment, or experiments, running that require completely uninterrupted power, please bring this information to the meeting or contact me directly.

Notice: Intermittent Power Outages Allen Hall 7/11/17 6:00 am – 10:00 am

Building Occupants,

Due to utility testing Allen Hall will experience intermittent power outages on July 11, 2017 between 6:00 am – 10:00 am.  Crews from Utilities and Energy and Facilities Services will be working closely with a contractor to verify vector grouping.  This involves shutting down one transformer at a time.  Allen Hall is not in phase sequence. Transfer switches will be manually transferred in the computing center and the rest of the building will be walked to verify emergency system.

For questions or concerns on how this might impact your area you can contact CPFM Facilities Services Electrical and Lighting Supervisor Rob Berg 541-346-2313 or CPFM Utilities and Energy Electrical Supervisor Rick Tabor 541-346-7511

On Thursday, June 22nd from 5:00 am to 6:00 am, the temporary power feed will be removed from Frohnmayer Music Building’s panel 4N1B.  This has been is use for the Berwick Hall Project.

The line voltage will be disconnected from the Beall Hall/Frohnmayer Music panel during the shutdown, which will affect the entire building.  The electricity will be turned back on after the shutdown.

The work will be performed by On Electric Group (OEG) and Lease Crutcher Lewis.

For questions or concerns about how this may impact your area, contact Martina Oxoby, Campus Planning and Facilities Management (CPFM) Campus Planning at 346-5880.

Building Occupants,

On Wednesday morning, June 7th, at 4:00 am until Friday morning, June 9th, at 8:00 am, the contractor working on the 3rd floor will require access to rooms 313, 315, & 317 to run above ceiling ducting and revise the wiring on the wall shared with the project. This will only affect access, electrical, and HVAC Supply Air in the three rooms .

We have reserved the Conference Rooms for this event, and as it may be inaccessible during this time, please take anything needed from this location prior to the shutdown period.

Work will be performed by Dorman Construction.

For questions or concerns about how this may impact your area, contact Colin Brennan, Campus Planning and Facilities Management (CPFM) Design and Construction at 346-8242.

March 27, 28 & 30 2017 Scheduled Outages Affecting Cascade, Klamath and the Price Commons and Research Library

3/24/17 Update:

Building Occupants,

 

The project manager has added some additional information below in bold.  Please contact Denise Stewart, Owners Representative CPFM Design and Construction at 541-346-2280 with any questions or concerns about this new information.

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Building Occupants,

 

As part of the Price Science Commons and Research Library project Andersen Construction will have a series of power outages March 27, 28 and 30, 2017.  These scheduled outages will affect building occupants in Cascade, Klamath and the Price Commons and Research Library.

 

Schedule of Activities:

 

Date: Monday March 27, 2017

Time: 7:00 am – 5:00 pm

Affected Buildings: 

  • Cascade
  • Klamath
  • Price Science Commons and Research Library

Building Impacts: 

  • Cascade all emergency egress lighting will be off.
  • PSC all normal power will be off; elevator will be out of service; data equipment will be off; HVAC will be shut down and all lighting will be off.
  • Klamath heating water pumps will be off spaces may be cooler by 10*F.
  • Klamath basement only HVAC supply air will be shut down.  Please note Andersen Construction will be installing plastic zipper doors on doors to optic labs and provide temporary cooling to the anatomy lab.

 

Date:  Tuesday March 28, 2017

Time: 6:00 am – 11:00 am

Affected Buildings:

  • Price Science Commons and Research Library

Building Impacts:

  • 6:00 am – 7:00 am Switch both ATS from standby to normal power (correcting the phasing).
  • 7:00 am – 11:00 am Replace breakers to correct metering on SBDP
  • Loss of power will not be detected; notice provided as a precaution.
  • PSC elevator will be out of service for the duration.  Onyx Bridge elevator will be operational.

 

Date:  Thursday March 30, 2017

Time:  7:00 am – 12:00pm

Affected Buildings: 

  • Cascade Hall
  • Klamath
  • Price Science Commons and Research Library

Building Impacts:

  • Final Commissioning of the standby and emergency power automatic transfer switches.
  • 7:00 am – 11:00 am Price Science Commons and Research Library elevator and data will be offline.  The Building Automation System in Klamath B29 will be offline but all equipment will continue to operation.  Building Control systems will resume and reset at 9:00 am. The reason for the revision is that testing between 9-11am will likely cause the normal power and data to noticeably flicker.  Power will not be reliable until 11am.
  • 9:00 am – 12:00 am Price Science Commons and Research Library and Cascade emergency lighting will be shut down and the fire alarm panel will be running on battery backup.

For project questions contact Denise Stewart, Owners Representative CPFM Design and Construction at 541-346-2280.
