Effective 1/1/18 New Badge Requirement for Contractors & Professional Design Service Providers at UO

Campus Community,

For your general awareness, starting January 1, 2018 CPFM is implementing a new ID Badge requirement for all designers and contractors. The attached notice went out to ALL our retainer contractors/designers a couple of days ago via the PCS website. This requirement will also apply to designers and contractors that are not on retainer who obtain work with the University.

As you engage with designers and contractors, please help educate them on this upcoming requirement.

Appreciate your help! If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.

12/29/17: 10th & Mill Alley Access – Advisory

Building Occupants,

The following message from the property management company regarding alley way access:

It appears that the Fiber project has the alley way blocked today. However, Greg spoke to the foreman and they will continue to give access to anyone that needs it. You may need to be a bit patient, but when they know you need access to/from garage or alley, they will accommodate.

We were not given prior notice of this work. I will contact the project head to make request again that we are given notice in the future.

10/5/17: Informational Notice Regarding Smell and Fans in Willamette Hall

Building Occupants,

Last night around 12:45 am there was food in the microwave of Willamette 471 that caused smoke in the room.  Custodial opened the catwalk windows on the 4th floor, balcony doors in suite 470, and a few offices.  UOPD requested fans to help with the dissipation of the smell.  Fans have been placed in rooms 470 and 471.

The microwave from 471 was very pungent of smoke and was placed on the secured balcony of suite 470.  This balcony can only be accessed from inside.  As of 6:00 am, the burnt smell had not dissipated as much as we would have liked and the fans, room 471 and balcony doors were left open to continue the dispersal process.

We will continue to monitor the area, and do what we can to improve the indoor air quality.

For questions or concerns, please contact Linda Miller at 541-346-2316.

Weather and material cure time will play a role in the time table. If there is an extension of the time, building users will be notified.
