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.

On Saturday 8/19 Fortis will construct walls for the new electrical room to isolate the construction activities from work areas. All loud activities will be scheduled after-hours.
Information provided by UO Safety and Risk Services:
Asbestos abatement is completed with a controlled environment. Unaffected surfaces are covered with thick plastic sheeting and thoroughly sealed, any penetrations are sealed, and the work area entry is protected by a two flap air lock. Air is constantly removed from the work area through use of a machine called an air filtration unit (AFU). This machine draws air from the work area, forces it through a series of filters, and then exhausts it to the exterior of the building. The final filter is HEPA, which removes 99.97% of particulate measuring .3 microns and smaller. The work area is under negative pressure, meaning that air can’t escape except through our AFU.
You may notice plastic sheeting walls with asbestos signage on them. These are to notify you of a potential hazard inside of the enclosure and are required by OSHA and LRAPA regulations. There also will be a long plastic exhaust duct. This duct carries the filtered exhaust air out of the containment and exhausts it to the building exterior. All of these controls are designed and proven to keep the potential hazard inside of the containment and away from you. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Environmental Health & Safety at 6-3192.

We are gearing up for construction activity at Oregon Hall First Floor West (1W).
Phase 1 work is renovating First Floor West (1W) and adding roof top mechanical equipment to replace west wing HVAC equipment (Phase 1 & 2). We are scheduled to begin HVAC modifications on 1W (to cap and isolate 1W from the building) the week of 7/24. This will support abatement and demolition activities to 1W scheduled to begin 7/26. As part of the new HVAC Roof-Top equipment (September Installation) we will be building a new mechanical pump room in 220 (8/7 start) and a new Electrical Room in 342 (8/24 start).
Fortis construction will install fencing around the back parking lot on 8/7 (click on image for attached site plan). A dumpster will be placed in the west truck bay for construction, and we will leave the east truck bay open for deliveries. The construction gate will remain open during regular business hours for deliveries. Window Replacement to 1W will begin 9/6. There will be site fencing used during the window replacement.
I will provide updates on the construction activities as the project progresses.
Please contact me with any questions.

Starting at the end of May, maintenance staff will be painting all hallways and performing work on hallway radiators in PLC. They will begin on the ground/basement level and hope to reach the 3rd floor by the end of summer.
You can expect to see painting tarps, ladders, work carts, paint cans, paint trays, etc. Please be mindful of the work spaces as you pass by them. Areas containing wet paint will be posted. You can also expect mild noise as the crews remove and replace radiator covers and possibly drill out stubborn screws.
For questions or concerns about how this may impact your area, contact Jim Cody, Campus Planning and Facilities Management (CPFM) Zone A Maintenance Manager at 346-2302.
During the week of April 3-7, 2017, work on the 3rd floor renovation at 1600 Millrace will begin.
The project is expected to be completed by the end of September 2017.
The contractor has been instructed to perform activities that create disruptive noise and/or vibrations after-hours to minimize disturbances.
