Announcements (Outages/Shut-downs)

May 26, 2014-Ongoing
HPER Occupants: Beginning the week of May 26, a safety fence, construction barricades and overhead protection will begin in preparation for the roof project. The work will include the upper roof over the basketball courts, gymnastic room and exercise rooms. It will also include the offices spaces on the south side of the building. NO WORK WILL BE DONE OVER THE SWIMMING POOLS. The tear-off work is expected to be very dusty and noisy, especially in the second floor areas. The contractor will install coverings within these rooms to control dust and damage to the building contents. The contractor has prepared a schedule which allows for basketball camps and other major events within the building. These events should not be interrupted but noise will be a continual concern. No excessive smells from glues and/or solvents are expected, but they will still be monitored closely. Actual work on the roof is scheduled to begin the first week in June. Project completion is expected in mid-August.
June 11, 2014-Ongoing
Student Health & Wellness Center: On June 16, a reroofing project will begin on the Student Health & Wellness Center and is expected to continue through August and potentially into September. The project will involve the removal and replacement of the existing roof membrane and its gravel ballast as well as the large skylights. No shutdowns of rooftop equipment or power supplies are anticipated at this time but notices will be sent out ahead of schedule if it becomes necessary to do so.

As part of this project, fences and covered walkways will be installed around the perimeter of the building (beginning June 11) which are to provide fall protection for building users and occupants as old materials are removed and the new is installed. All building exits required for emergency egress will be maintained open. Building materials and dumpsters will also be moved onto the site and stored there but parking interruption will be very minor.

As the project moves along, building occupants should expect loud noises, dust, and minor interferences with business as usual. The contractor will strive to limit dust entry into the building and will make efforts to support the needs of work going on within the building. However, there will at times be some slight interruptions.  Also to be expected is some off-gassing of glues and solvents as the roof membrane is attached to the roof structure and seams are glued. The contractor will make every effort to reduce the infiltration of odors into the building but they cannot be eliminated completely. Therefore, MSDS sheets for these chemical products are available upon request for those who may be sensitive to them or who may have concerns.  

All users of the building - as well as the outdoor track and field - are requested at this time to please remove all equipment from the roof such as tanks, tubs, athletic equipment, etc. Please note! After the roofing project is complete, NO extraneous equipment will be allowed on the roof!  All equipment used for track events must be kept on the field or stored elsewhere and any access to the roof by individuals is prohibited unless a roof access permit is obtained from Facilities. This is due to the fact that membrane roofs are highly susceptible to puncturing and can be expensive to repair, plus the inherent potential for damaging expensive research and equipment within a building.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the project, please contact Quin Whitaker at 797-8064. Thank you!
