HEATING/COOLING: The HVAC department is working on the 2nd floor for the next few days... continuing on to the 1st floor, then basement.  The work on the 3rd floor has been completed.  After everything has been installed on all floors, they will hook into the new heating and air conditioning system. At that time, hopefully within a couple weeks, all the thermostats and everything should be working like they’re supposed too.  As always…….thank you for your patience!

POSTED SEPT 12, 2016
HEATING/COOLING: Since the days are starting to cool down  some of you may have noticed your rooms being cooler.  At first we thought it was the thermostats but have found out differently.  The workers cut through a water line when working on the Tunnel project which somehow affects our heating and air condition system.  Of course we didn’t notice before when it was hot out, right?!  They’re supposed to be finished with the Tunnel project by our building the first part of October.  Until then I’m afraid you will need to dress warmer; bring sweaters/jackets; blankets; they won’t be able to fix this problem until they finish the tunnel & hook us up again.

The painters are working in HSRC room 307 today & possibly tomorrow (Aug 16-18).  We have a fan to help circulate the air..  Also, workers have been using some kind of oil type spray that is causing a strong smell by the basement elevator.  Unfortunately both of these things may radiate throughout the entire building for the next few days.

BACKFILLING PROJECT: The backfilling of the Tunnel has been delayed. It is expected  to start  Friday, July 29th and continue thru next Friday, Aug. 5th

They will possibly begin putting the Footings in on the West Wing of the big hole, which is where the Client Parking Garage this week.  Prepare for big pounding and shaking from that project.  After they get the West side done, they’ll move to the East.

Within the next couple weeks they will be adding a piece of concrete walkway & move the fencing for access between the Early Childhood building & Edith Bowen.

We have also asked about getting some water to the shrubs, trees and grass on the North and West side of our building! 

 Charlee keep you informed about specific dates, times, changes, etc., as they are available.

The backfilling of the tunnel has NOT started like it was supposed to have yesterday. Tentatively, it will start this Friday, July 29 and continue through next Friday, August 5. They sill begin footing on the west wing, which is where the Client Parking Garage will be, possibly this week. Prepare for big pounding and shaking! After the West is done, they will move to the East. Within the next few weeks, they will be adding a piece of concrete walkway and move the fencing for access between the Early Childhood Building and Edith Bowen.

The Black parking lot bio-swales are being repaired beginning July 27, 2016. Construction will begin on the east swale and move west until completion.  These areas are in the middle of the parking lot and should be coned off during construction.

CHILLED WATER SHUTDOWN
On TUESDAY , JULY 26th   FROM 6:00AM UNTIL 10:00AM THE CHILLED WATER will go down. This is part of the NE Utility tunnel project. During this time, there will be no cooling for the building.
There will also be extensive early morning noise due to back filling. The contractors will bring in sweepers to keep dirt from building up in the parking lots.
Please plan accordingly.  
*****************
Posted July 13, 2016
PARKING: The following new designation of Parking Lots should be completed by Aug. 15th: 
1. The original Black lot will remain but willl be expanded to include what was originally the Blue Lot north of the building. That signage has already been changed to indicate it is Black parking, and you will not be cited for parking there.  Students can also park there until  August 15.
2. Beginning, August 15, Student parking or Blue permit holders will be moved to the east to the Housing lot with additional parking by the Tennis Courts.  New signage will be completed soon.  You can check the parking website www.parking.usu.edu for map updates.
CONSTRUCTION WORK:  On Tuesday July 26th there will be extensive early morning noise due to back filling. The contractors are watching the dirt build up in the parking lots. They will bring in sweepers to keep dirt from being in the parking lots so that when it rains again it won’t be mud.  Please plan accordingly……..

AIR QUALITY: Facilities will bring an Air Monitor for the HSRC building as an extra precautionary device!  They built shafts around the Air vents outside of the building to prevent any bad air from coming in but this will be another safety measure.

PARKING: Some of you may have noticed the Blue Lot Parking sign has been taken down.  Unfortunately it does not mean it has become the Black Lot…….yet!  Parking confirmed with me today this will not take place before August 15th

SHAKE, RATTLE, AND ROLL:  The Project Engineer provided some answers about our concerns and the time frames for the shaking and pounding going on:  They’re putting in vertical columns, which is part of the trenching system for the tunnel.  This is happening right at the S/E corner of our building and will continue through tomorrow, Friday, July 8th. 
The week of July 11-15th they will move to another project, so it should be quiet. Starting July 18th, they will return to continue with the tunnel towards the East of us until finished.  At this time, we should not be affected as much as what we’re experiencing right now.  As for the foundation of the HSRC, he assured us that the footings to our building are exposed enough for the Contractors to know if our foundation is being compromised in any way.  Everything is how it should be so far and the work has almost reached the end of our building.
