Pacific Hall B-2 Outage Timeline 9/9- 12/18

Building Occupants,

To coordinate Pacific Hall outages related to the Pacific B-2 Renovation Design and Construction project managers Nick Pritchard and  Jen Miley have put together a timeline of events starting September 9, 2017, through December 18, 2017. These outages will vary from building wide to only impacting certain rooms. The purpose of this email is to provide an overview and reference.  Nick and Jen have been working closely with building users to document lab equipment and how this might impact departments and institutes. Going forward intentions are to provide this overview and continue to communicate building wide outages email notifications for anything that is impacting building wide services. For outages that are localized to individual rooms, the project managers will be communicating directly with occupants.

For questions or concerns related to this timeline please contact CPFM Design and Construction Project Managers  Nick Pritchard 541-346-9139 or Jen Miley 541-346-1530.

7/5/17 – 7/14/17: Updated McKenzie Hall Hot Water Shutdown + Cooling 7/13-14

7/17/17 Update:

I’ve received reports that a number of McKenzie Hall occupants have experienced warm air flow into their offices today.  I’ve learned that events associated with completing the work on the south mechanical room caused air handlers to generate and discharge warm air.  I am told by the contractors that the issue has been resolved and any warm air discharge you may experience should be dissipating from the system and conditioned air returning to normal discharge by this afternoon.  Thank you for your patience.

 

Update:  We’ve been informed that work slated for July 13th and 14th during this shutdown period will cause the shutdown of a mechanical unit that could affect McKenzie Hall cooling.

Building Occupants,

On Wednesday, July 5th until Friday, July 14th, McKenzie Hall’s hot water system will be shut down to remove and reinstall piping in the lower level of the building.

This will only effect the hot water in the building.  All cold water service will continue, including the air conditioning system.

Work will be performed by GBC Contractors and Alliance Systems.

For questions or concerns about how this may affect your area, contact Gene Mowery, Campus Planning and Facilities Management (CPFM) Design and Construction at 346-5593.

Building Occupants,

Beginning May 23, 2017 at 4:00 am until August 1, 2017 at 6:00 pm, the heating water in Pacific Hall will be shut down.

The reason for this request is to permanently remove portions of the hydronic piping, as well as re-routing of piping for radiators that will remain in service.

This will affect the building’s heating water.

Lower Level – complete piping and radiator demo.
1st floor – complete piping and radiator demo.
2nd floor – 6 Labs will remain in service, those within the construction area will be removed.
3rd floor – Radiators on the south end of Pacific Hall will be taken out of service, but will remain in place.

On Monday, March 27th through Thursday, March 30th, 2017, Klamath Hall’s heating water will be turned off.  This will affect the entire 2nd floor heating water, which MAY cause the water temperature to decline by 10 degrees F.  The work will be performed by a contractor.  Spring Break was selected to limit the impact to building occupants.
