Cascade Hall Custodial Services Update

CPFM Custodial Services is piloting a daytime custodial program in Cascade Hall that started today June 28, 2018.  The custodian hours are Monday – Friday 6:00 AM – 2:30 PM  This is a program that has been successful in other buildings across campus.

We have seen that many around campus value getting to know the custodial staff members assigned to their buildings, and that building occupants appreciate getting to know those who work in the buildings we care for. This new approach will give many occupants the opportunity to know the custodian assigned to Cascade Hall. During the summer occupants will see several new faces, as we are cross-training the staff allowing us to provide the best coverage as absences occur.  Our goal is to make sure we do the best possible job of keeping the University buildings clean and safe.

We have recently worked with Sandy Thoms regarding this transition but, recognize that each space may have unique issues and concerns.  As with any initiative, we will learn and adapt as we implement this program.  We welcome comments and feedback so that we can make adjustments that meet needs and contribute to a successful transition.

For questions or concerns please contact CPFM Facilities Services Custodial Manager Tim Winder at 541-346-5771.

Thank You,

Tim Winder
Interim Custodial Services Manager
