-use of an air scrubber
-use of a minimal odor dry erase paint

No additional utility disruptions or shutoffs are expected at this time; however, if there are any additional disruptions or shutdowns to services, an additional notice will be distributed.

1600 Millrace HVAC Update 6/11

Facilities Liaisons,

After several days of troubleshooting the HVAC unit that primarily serves the third floor of 1600 Millrace, it has been determined the unit has a failed part. Crews and the Contractor are researching where to acquire the necessary part and expedite it to campus. This may cause other areas of the building to experience warm temps.

Contact the Work Control Center 346-2319 if you have questions or concerns or would like to acquire a loaner fan for your space. You can also submit a service request via the call log

Updates will be communicated as they are received.

Knight Library #364-#366 Renovation 6/17/19 – 8/31/19

Beginning June 17th, and continuing until the end of August, the general contractor, Preferred Construction, and their subs will be doing renovation work in rooms 364-366 in the Knight Library.  This will involve asbestos abatement, minor demo and framing, drywall, duct work, electrical, carpet and paint.  Users can expect to hear normal and occasional construction noises such as hammering and drilling, and may smell a water-based latex, non-toxic paint, during the painting portion.  Users will see the contractor, their subs and UO personnel entering/exiting the building with tools and materials during normal business hours.

During abatement (6/18-6/20), CPFM staff will turn off the HVAC system, which might affect areas outside the construction zone on the third floor.

No other utility disruptions or shutoffs are expected at this time, but if there are any more, then an additional notice will be distributed.

If there are any issues or concerns, please contact Theo Davis, the CPFM project manager, at 541-346-1012, or
