Parking has been notified and has no issues with this schedule maintenance activity.

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.

10/20/17: Oregon Hall Renovations- Project Status Update

Update 10/20/17:

Heating System Update: Hydronic pumps were delivered this week and are being installed. This Saturday (10/21) 7AM-5PM the existing hydronic pipes will need to be flushed and refilled. Workers will be accessing each floor to drain the heating water. Next week, beginning 10/23 we will be circulating hot water to building HVAC equipment. There will be testing, balancing, and adjustments being made all next week to work out any issues. All areas should have heat back on-line by the end of the week (10/27).

 

Chilled Water Infrastructure Update: Chilled water infrastructure is also being replaced within the building but won’t be back online for several weeks. We are using outside air to cool the building and will continue to adjust the amount of outdoor air to provide cooler indoor temperatures in the afternoon. We appreciate your patience as we make these infrastructure improvements to the building.

 

First Floor West Side Update: First Floor west side is still under construction and is using a temporary heating system to provide adequate indoor conditions for the sheetrock, joint compound, painting activities, and millwork. The temporary equipment is situated on the west side of the building. We are coordinating with EH&S to ensure there are no safety concerns with the interim heat.

 

First-Floor Windows and Storefront Replacement Update: First-floor windows and storefront replacement has been delayed due to material delays and unexpected conditions. We hope to have all the window and storefront work complete by 11/17. We will then be able to open up the covered bike parking. In the meantime, please use available parking on the west side of the building and adjacent to Deschutes Hall.

 

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you,

Update 10/9/17: Oregon Hall Renovations- Construction Update

Saturday 10/14, 7AM-Noon; Fortis will be using a crane to lift large mechanical equipment up to the western portions of the roof.  We request the west portions of the building (all floors) be unoccupied during this activity (10/14, 7AM-Noon).  Please let me know immediately if we need to modify our crane pick around other scheduled activities.

Heating and Cooling Systems-As part of the renovations, the project is replacing the hydronic piping for both the heating water systems and chilled water systems.  Currently, both the heating and cooling systems are off-line as we replace the aging infrastructure.  We are scheduled to have the heating system functioning by Friday 10/20 and the cooling systems functioning by Friday 10/27.  Until then, the building will be cool in the morning and heat up during the day since we are circulating a combination of outside air and make-up air.  We are monitoring the temperatures and making adjustments to the air flow to try to accommodate the cold mornings and warm afternoons.

Construction continues on First Floor West which is scheduled to be complete 12/22/17.  We will then have a series of moves over Winter Break to prepare for the next phase of construction.  More details to come.

Fortis will begin working a night shift and weekends to complete activities that require access into occupied areas of the building.  They will also be working on the roof to deliver roof curbs and roof-top equipment.

Window and Storefront Replacement continues on 1st Floor West- Currently the crews are working on the west and south sides.  When the work is complete on the south, the temporary walls will be removed and access will be available to the covered bike racks.

Let me know if you have any questions.
