[Ongoing Updates] Information Regarding LISB Water Leak Mitigation

Update 11/2: Drywall work is nearing completion in LISB 200. The final coat of joint compound is expected to be applied today. Depending on dry-times, it may be necessary for a Facilities Technician to come into the space on Saturday 11/3 to keep the project on schedule for its completion date. Paint and primer are expected to be completed by the end of the working day on Monday 11/5. Additional cleanup time and removal of equipment will likely spill over into the day on Tuesday 11/6.

 

Update 10/31: Work in LISB 200 is under way. Dust containment and negative pressure air-purifiers are in place and functioning. Sheetrock work is progressing and is approximately fifty percent complete.

Subject: [Fourth Update] Information Regarding LISB Water Leak Mitigation

Building Occupants,

EHS has evaluated drying progress in the remaining two areas of LISB and can provide the following updates:

201 & 204 – Demising wall is still wet and is showing little drying progress. EHS and CPFM have determined that our best course of action is to demolish and replace affected finishes. The current plan will include constructing a dust control containment and air filters, and all removal and replacement work occur with these controls present. Our intent is to reduce dust emissions from this work to the lowest practicable level. The current plan is to wrap up work within 1 – 2 weeks. We believe labs should be able to remain largely functional during this period, with the loudest tasks being completed off-hours.

Please feel free to contact me as needed.

Thank you,

Building Occupants,

EHS has evaluated drying progress and can provide the following updates:

Rooms 201B, 303C, 403, 405, 407, & 409 – All drying was successful and is complete. Servpro removed equipment today.

303, 304, & 307 – All casework is dry. Servpro removed equipment today.

303 & 304 – Demising wall is still wet, but is showing progress. Equipment will remain over the weekend and EHS will recheck on Monday, 10-29-2018. We are hopeful that this will dry by then.

201 & 204 – Demising wall is still wet and is showing little progress. Equipment will remain over the weekend and EHS will recheck on Monday, 10-29-2018. Some demolition may be necessary.

CPFM will start reconstruction on Monday where they can. At this point, we think that most reconstruction will be completed by Friday next week. That being said, the second floor wall repairs may take longer depending on the final scope. We will be able to provide an update on Monday.

Thank you,

Subject: Information Regarding LISB Water Leak Mitigation

In the early hours of 10/23, a leak occurred within the RO system.

 

Building Occupants,

In the early hours of October 23, 2018, a water leak occurred within the RO system in LISB room 405. The leak impacted several spaces on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th floors of the building. Thanks to the quick work of CPFM staff, the impacts were contained and limited to some cabinetry and gypsum board wall finishes in the rooms listed below.

201, 201B, 204, 303, 303C, 304, 307, 403, 405, 407, 409

The University has retained a mitigation contractor, Servpro, to provide mitigation services for all of the affected spaces. Our current mitigation strategy will be to dry out finishes in place, with minimal demolition. This will include the use of dehumidification equipment and large fans strategically placed throughout affected areas. The equipment will generate heat and a significant amount of noise. It is imperative that it be left running and not tampered with, or mitigation efforts will not be successful. EHS will oversee the dry out phase of the mitigation. Once mitigation has been completed, the space will be reassembled by CPFM staff. Servpro will be setting up mitigation equipment in fourth-floor spaces this afternoon (October 23, 2018), and second and third floor spaces tomorrow (October 24, 2018).

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns about the mitigation phase of this incident. If any non-building related items were damaged as a result of this incident, contact Risk Management at 541-346-8316.

4/9/18: Klamath, Onyx Bridge, Pacific, Streisinger, Willamette Emergency RO Water Shutdown

Update:  RO water pipe has been repaired.

Building Users,

We are having to do an emergency repair to the RO (reverse osmosis) water line.  Since the RO water is pulled from tanks, we are hoping this will not affect the building users prior to the problem being corrected.  We will let you know when the repairs have been completed.

Campus Planning and Facilities Management crews will be performing the work.

For questions or concerns about how this may impact your area, contact David Ward, Campus Planning and Facilities Management (CPFM) Building Systems Associate Director at 346-2303.
