March 11th, 2010

Good morning,

It has been awhile since I last touched base with everyone. The building has been pretty undemanding as far as emergent issues. The department has been staying busy with work orders and general maintenance. We are also getting geared up for Spring break. We have many projects to get done during the break. You will see the crew and our students running around the building in various states of designing, building, repairing, replacing and a plethora of other things. I will certainly keep you updated with what to expect as we move along.

For now, you must come down and take a look at how nice office lighting can be with the right fixture, lamp and lumen’s. Until then, here is before and after pictures. In the first one, you are to look at the wall color difference between Sid and Mikes offices. They have the exact paint color, but the lighting makes them look totally different. In the second one, you can see (hopefully) that the wall color is the same again after both offices were updated with new lighting. As I said earlier, you must come down and take a look at what the correct lighting can do for a space.

Parcella was kind enough to provide the Spring Break building hours. They are as follows; 

The building is open until 8pm Friday, 3/19. Then closed to the public, but housing the FFA convention on Saturday 3/20 from 7a-9p. We’re closed Sunday 3/21. The following week, we’re open Mo-Fr, 7:30am-5pm, with Spring Visit 10a-5p on Fr 3/26. We’re closed the weekend of 3/27, 28. Regular hours begin again on Mo 3/29.

Until next time,

Cindy

Monday February 15, 2010

Hello all,

Well I guess I should of “knocked on wood” when on Friday I wrote “All is well in the Memorial Union”. Another steam leak has been found. This one is located under the ice machine in the Ballroom servery. This is the 3rd steam leak within 40′ of the same pipe. We will wait until the blood drive is over to fix the leak. It is beginning to look like we will need to replace the entire pipe, which is quite the undertaking.

Also taking place when the blood drive is over, is the checking of the sewer pipe under the Ballroom floor. The pipe had epoxy applied when being repaired and Jay is wanting to ensure that everything is still holding like we expect it to be.

The fan in Ballroom has been on all day and without the slightest odor. That is very good news! It means all the repairs are holding and everything and everyone is doing their job.

Including the students. They have been working hard down at Snell getting the Building Services storeroom organized and clean in preparation for the installation of shelving for even more organization. We have some AWESOME STUDENTS!

Have a wonderful Monday evening,

Cindy

  Okay, typing that header felt really good! Since starting the daily information letters I have never been able to use that headline. Of course we are still taking care of the daily repairs and work requests; there will always be those. But, the emergent issues are taken care of.

  • The pipe under the Ballroom floor is repaired.
  • The steam leaks have been located and fixed.
  • The front doors are almost complete (waiting for one more part).
  • All other water leaks have been repaired.

The only “heads-up” I have is, we are turning on the Ballroom fan this afternoon. There may be a slight odor when they first come on, but other than that everything should be fine. If you notice a strong odor anywhere in the building, please let someone on the Buiding Service’s team know. I am going to close with that bit of information. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Until Monday,

Cindy

MU East / Craft Center;
The kiln project was finished today. The new ventilation system is taking the hot air from the kiln 25 feet away from the building. This means no more pollutants in the Craft Center.

Air handler;
The parts came in for the air handler in the main lounge. The students installed them and all is running well.

Phone and Cable;
Telecommunication and Comcast were here today to install the IRC’s cable. They are in the middle of the installation as I type this. Hopefully, all is going well.

Leaks and water intrusion;
Hammerqusit and company were here today. They were able to take out a piece of pipe and show us how on the bottom side of the pipe is worn almost completely through. We are looking at lining the pipe for about 15 feet and that should take care of all leaks, leeching, etc. I believe we are nearing the end of our plumbing problems. The West end bathrooms will all be back on line within the next hour.

Changes in closures

Hello All,
The perimeter heat will be turned off and on for probably most of the day. We have found some more steam leaks and will be working on them. If you feel it getting cold, never fear, it will warm back up. Also, Hammerquist will not be here today to work on the pipe under the Ballroom floor. This means that the bathrooms on the West end will not be shut down today. We have rescheduled for sometime tomorrow. However, we do not have an exact time when they will be here, so I will send out another e-mail tomorrow letting everyone know of the closures.

Have a great day,
Cindy

!!!Tomorrow is still scheduled for the West end bathroom closeure!!!

WATER LEAK

As I notified last week, the pipe under the Ballroom floor is going to be under repair tomorrow. Scott from Hammerquist will be here to help Jay and Company pull the pipe and check it for leaks, cracks and pits. This is going to take turning the water off on the West end of the building. This means the Mezzanine bathrooms will be closed along with the womens 1st and 2nd floors. We anticipate the closure to be from 1:00 pm until 4:00 pm. I will keep everyone informed if times for the closure change. If all goes according to plan, we will be in the homestretch of these remediation’s tomorrow…..WooooHooo!

FRONT DOORS

All door around the MU should be completely operational and squeak free! The students have worked hard, oiling the doors, along with Chris repairing the doors. If you happen to see or hear a door that may be suspicious, please contact the Help Desk so we can make the repairs.

BALLROOM SERVERY

The sump pump has been reinstalled under the Ballroom Servery floor. This pump will catch all the little water infiltrations and leeching.

WORK ORDERS

A large majority of the day was spent catching up on work oders. The students were extremely helpful in seeing these work orders through to completion.

Yesterdays News

Thursday Building Update

Good afternoon all,

Today’s update is brought to you by way of Cindy and Sid (the man has a way with words). Why recreate the wheel…right? However, I do have something to add. Yesterday afternoon Kent asked me if I would like to turn the Building Update letters into a blog. This idea was very appealing to me, so….we are giving it a shot. Starting Monday you will receive a e-mail telling you to check out the blog if you want to know “xy or z”. I want to continue in bringing you the news of the day, what to watch for, and what to plan for. But, instead of an e-mail where interaction is limited, we now have the blog where there is a lot more opportunities to be interactive. It is my hope that you find the blog to be more on a personal level and less antiseptic and ho-hum like e-mail can be. For the first week or so, I will gently remind everyone that the blog exists. And, If I have something that will impact you and/or your program I will make sure you get the information! So, for now, keep your eyes open for the first Building Services blog. And, don’t be afraid to give me your opinion. After all that is what blogs are for, to keep the conversation moving.

Rotunda front doors: With two of the original door closers failed or failing, we gave up on our current door contractor and used a tip from Facilities Services to contact Mick’s Glass here in town. They are experienced with this closer, which is a very long-life and durable underground closer mfg’d by Rixson. Rixson specialists are as hard to come by these days as parts, but Mick’s was able to set us up 4 new closers in a slightly larger size as ours has long been out of service by Rixson. The new closers have a hold-open feature so we can eliminate all the unsightly collection of hardware cluttering the entrance. Failure at two doors precluded waiting for Spring. This project should wrap up next week.

Piping woes: As leak number 20 wobbles towards us, Hammerquist will be here on Tuesday to pull that pipe and check for pits, cracks etc. If everything stays as scheduled, water to the west of the building will be shut off from 1:00 to 4:00 pm. Like I stated previously, this means the Commons bathrooms, women’s Mezz and 2nd floor women’s will all be without water for the 3 hours mentioned. Again we apologize for inconvenience.

Ventilation victory: Jay and the student staff saved us around $12,000 today. The brushes went out on the large motor that runs the Lounge ventilation fan. A local contractor was unable to get new brushes. Too arcane, he said. Neither was a local contractor, though a new motor was available for around $6,000. The electrical service required to run the motor would go from the present 40 amp service to a 90 amp need which would require new service from the switchgear and new switching and routing, eliminating the original GE dimmer control “headache box” we’ve nursed along all these years. Jay and Blake drew out the brushes and went on line search and had the brushes on order for $85.00 within an hour. It is a simple matter to install them and get an additional 2-3 years life from this motor and bide our time until the building controls project changes that AC motor out for a variable drive DC motor.

MU East: Snell was having some steam leaks of their own. Facilities Service sent over their two pipe fitters, Jason and Dennis and they worked their magic. They rebuilt 12 steam traps that were back feeding and wasting A LOT of steam. So, the folks in Snell should feel more consistency in the heating of the building.

Wondering if everyone will be able to tell where Sid is doing the talking and where it is me talking???

Have a great evening,
Cindy

Tuesday Building Update:

Fan:
We are still waiting on the parts to completely fix the air handler for the main lounge. We have not had any interruptions of air flow and don’t anticipate any.

Unknown Water Leak:
All bathrooms on the West end will be down from 1:00 P.M. to 4:00 P.M. This includes all the Commons bathrooms, Women’s Concourse, and Women’s 2nd floor.
A small leak was found in a pipe under the Ballroom floor. Hammerquist will be here tomorrow to assist with pulling the pipe out to repair and check for pits, holes and cracks. At this time there is a small amount water leeching into the tunnel. So, it’s not a HUGE issue, but certainly one that needs to be dealt with. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. The good news is Sean from American Rooter could not find any more leaks than this one.

Front Doors:
Mick’s glass was here today. They worked on the main doors. Both outer doors will be out of service until sometime tomorrow, but the two middle doors will remain serviceable until some point tomorrow. They will be adjusting the doors so when they meet, they won’t be any off center, and also the slamming of the doors will cease with this repair. Hopefully the noise level while repairing the doors will not be too bad.

Thank you for your patience,
Cindy

Good morning all,

This is to serve as a “noise notice”. Mick’s Glass is coming today and tomorrow to work on the front doors. So, this means there will be some noise as they attempt to get the doors fixed. They will be working on two doors today and two tomorrow. Hopefully the noise won’t last for more than 4 hours each day. If you have any concerns about the noise or anything else for that matter, please do not hesitate to contact the Help Desk and we would be happy to help.

Thank you,

Friday’s Building Update:

Fan:
The fan that runs the air for the Main Lunge has been down for three days. Jay & Co. were able to get it up and running again. However, it still needs some new parts. The parts should arrive by Monday and then there should be no more air flow interruption. We want to thank everyone for putting up with the various temperature.

Unknown Water Leak:
We are putting more dye into the pipe and on Monday or Tuesday we will once again check to see if the dye is leeching through the tunnel walls. I will keep everyone updated on our findings.

Steam Leak:
Perimeter steam is on. There appears to be no more leaks but to play on the safe side of the street, Sean from American Rooter will be here Tuesday to TV the tunnels again to make sure we have no more leaks.

Front Doors:
Mick’s glass will be here on Tuesday or Wednesday to install new hardware on all the doors. Once again, this will cause some noise, so I will let you know date & time as soon as I get the information.

So, as you can tell, next week will another busy week! We do not expect there to be any big interruptions to service and guests. The only thing that may cause a few eyebrows to raise is the work on the front doors. I will keep everyone updated as the repairs begin to happen. And…as always, please do not hesitate to contact the Help Desk with any questions or concerns you may have.

Have fun filled weekend,
Cindy

P.S. Some feedback about the colored Building Update would be appreciated. 

Wednesday’s Building Update

Unknown water leak:
We have had some dye leech through, but not enough yet to determine exactly what the status of the pipe is. We continue to monitor the situation.

Steam Leak:
The Facility Services Steam Fitters were not able to get to us today, so they will be here tomorrow. Perimeter steam is off. There will no heat in the meeting rooms for part of the day tomorrow. The reason for this is to cool the tunnels down so the Steam Fitters can get in there and work on the leaks. If we keep windows closed the rooms should stay fairly warm from residual heat, also there will be heat in the core of the building and that should help too. Sorry, for inconvenience, but I am sure the Steam Fitters appreciate it!

Unknown Water Intrusion:
R.M. Sutherland Construction was able to finish with sealing both of the pits and as of this a.m. there was no water in them!!
Front Doors:
We are just waiting for parts to come in. I will keep you updated.

Things went really smooth today. So, I have nothing new to add to our list. Thank you for the ^good thoughts^ and ^the crossing of appendages^. The good vibes really helped. I will keep you updated regarding the front doors and the steam leaks.

Have a wonderful evening,
Cindy

Tuesday’s Building Update

Unknown water leak:
Sean from American Rooter was here and T.V.’d the sewer pipe and found big pits in the pipe. However we don’t know if these “pits” completely penetrate the pipe. So, we are going to put some inert dye through the pipe and see if it leeches out through the tunnel walls. This will tell us if the water is ground or soil. ^Think nothing but good thoughts!^

Steam Leak:
The Steam Fitters did not come today, but they will be here tomorrow at 7:30. It sounds like will be able to fix the leaks without too much trouble. ^Keep your fingers crossed.^

Unknown water intrusion:
R.M. Sutherland Construction was here today. He was successful! The pit on the east side has been sealed up and is dry. He is still working on the second pit. If all continues to go well it should be dry by tomorrow. ^Keep your toes crossed.^

Sewer line leak:
Hammerquist was here today and able to fix that 3” hole I was telling you about yesterday. It turns out that this leak was on a pipe off the main hub. It serviced kitchen sinks and floor drains. ^All is well^

Front Doors:
The center front doors should be working. Mick’s glass came to the rescue last night. The East door is locked and tagged due to it’s horrible slamming issues. We are waiting for our order the brass plates and door closures to come. They are expected to be here by Friday of this week. If that is truly the case the work to repair and replace will begin next Monday. As I stated yesterday, there will some inconvenience with this repair due to removal of cement and the general noise of the repair. We will do our best to keep this at a minimum. ^Ear plugs ready to go?^

Things are starting to look up again. No major catastrophes, and things moved along quite smoothly. I will keep you updated as I get the information.

Until Tomorrow,
Cindy

Monday’s Building Update

This sort of feels like Déjà vu for me.

Unknown water leak;
As Sid explained in his e-mail to everyone on Friday, Sean at American Rooter is coming back to help us out. He will be here tomorrow morning at 9:00. He is going to T.V. our sewer line. Hopefully after Sean is finished he will be able to tell us where the water is leeching in from. There should be no interruptions of service, no extra noise, or smells.

Steam leak’
After Jay & Company went on their steam leak mission they located both leaks. Campus Steam Sitters were notified and are coming tomorrow to correct both steam leaks. Both of these leaks are under the servery floor. Hopefully they will be able to make their repairs without having to gain access by drilling through the custodial room floor.

Unknown water intrusion;
R.M. Sutherland Construction will be here tomorrow to seal up the side walls and penetration holes of two duct chases in the two concrete pits Sid told you about in Fridays e-mail. These pits are quite large, one is 150 sq ft and the other is 200 sq ft. Hopefully this step will tell us if /where we need to go next to keep these chases from filling with water.

Sewer line leak;
There is another sewer line leak coming off of a 3” drain. Hammerquist will be tomorrow to fix this leak. This should not present any problems with services and guests.

Front central doors;
Mick’s glass is in the building and trying to repair the central front doors. There is a strong possibility of having to remove the Rickson door closures altogether and install new closures. This means there will be the noise of them drilling out some concrete. As I am not sure what the verdict will be until I return in the morning, I will let you know what to expect as soon as I get the information.

The front doors not included, these problems should have a very low level of impact to service and guests. And, hopefully the front doors will not significantly impact the building. So…….as you can tell there will be several contractors in the building tomorrow. It is our hope they will be able to assist us in the remediation of the above four issues. And, as always….if any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate in contacting the Help Desk.

Until tomorrow morning,
Cindy

Hi all,

We are not out of the woods yet. Here’s where we stand as of this afternoon:

1. Steam leak. Discovered a second steam leak at the location of the first. Exact location and nature of the leak yet to be determined, the area is inaccessible except from the vault outside. We are going to get someone sized right up that tunnel Monday and if need be, cut or drill a small hole in the floor of the custodial room just off the dock to make any repairs we can’t do from below.
2. Unknown water leak. There is second leak entering the ventilation tunnel at or near the site of the main sewer leak beneath the Ballroom floor. It is minor and undetermined as to the source. No service disruption is necessary at this time for either events or the building. Plans for Monday are to tv the line and enter the tunnel from the Mechanical Room to observe sound and flow, if any, while additional water is sent into the line. We hope to identify the leak with this simple process and determine next actions, which we are looking to perform beneath the Ballroom floor without having to disrupt events.
3. Unknown water intrusion. There are two concrete pits in the Ballroom Mechanical Room that are filling with water over time, one faster than the other. We first discovered them back before winter break. This is a new and emergent condition. (Aren’t they all?!?) We have had no luck either stopping the entry of the water or getting it to the sump by whatever means that was provided by the builders in the original plan of construction. Water pipes, exterior drains, ground water table, intrusion from the 13th dimension – all are suspect as we build the root cause diagnosis of this new problem. We have ongoing work that we have engaged Sutherland Const. to assist with. Possible solution will be to continue de-watering via temporary means and wait until the water table drops in summer to see if the condition persists, then build a route of drainage into the area, hopefully taking advantage of existing sump pit and drain tunnels.

These things are having a relatively invisible impact on our ability to provide our usual high level of customer service and support. However, if you catch something we have overlooked, please do not hesitate to let us know.

We do not expect to throw any significant amount of blood and treasure at these problems, just wanted to keep all of you informed and operating from the same set of expectations for the building that we currently have. (sigh)

Please provide any feedback or questions in reply to this e-mail.

Thanks and have a good weekend,

Hello All,

 

To follow in Sid’s footsteps, I’ll start by saying the problems continue to shrink and as of this afternoon things are definitely looking up! However, there is still work and repair going on in and around the building. To keep things simple, I will list the areas that may affect you tomorrow.

 

1)      The students pulled all the new water piping from the attic to the Ballroom. They will have them hooked up by tomorrow afternoon. This could affect Buenos Burritos hot water supply for no more than 10 minutes.

2)      The loading dock will continue to have trucks coming and going tomorrow, so we are asking folks to stay clear. Also, we are asking OSU Catering to come into the building via Jefferson street entrance.

3)      The dock wash down area will be off line for the remainder of the week. We have located the problem, but unfortunately it will take some time to get the drain ready for waste water. We are asking folks who need to wash their 5 gallon buckets, to use the dishwasher.

4)      As of this afternoon there is no steam coming into the building, and no air being moved. However, we will have the decontamination and clean-up process finished tomorrow afternoon and we will be able to move air through the building. Hopefully with the outside temp’s being in the 50’s everyone will be able to remain comfortable until we get the steam back on.

5)      The Women’s Ballroom bathroom has been fixed, now the clean-up begins. The bathroom will be up and operating by this time tomorrow.

6)      The Servery/Kitchen is still off limits until a complete decontamination and thorough clean-up happens. The use of the ice machine remains the same. Users will need to enter through the double doors from Ballroom to access the machine.

 

We want to thank everyone for their patience and support these last few day and at the same time ask that you remain patient as we see the projects through to completion. As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do hesitate to call the Help Desk at 7-9823, or drop us an e-mail at muhd@oregonstate.edu.

Wednesday update:

 

  • Dock drain closed until further notice.  A hose has been set up to use on the west end of the compactor where the apron drain is located.  Dye testing showed up in the servery sump and further looking found that line collapsed.  An alternate drain idea has yet to come forward…
  • We are reviewing the video from the tunnel to see if the piping in the tunnel is supported.  The brick separating the ventilation chases needs to come out so further tunnel investigation to the East can take place.
  • Talked with Contracts.  We are good up til $5K, then after that amount we are likely to run into issues with BOLI and public works bond.  Still awaiting the faxed estimate.  Advanced Recovery not on site until noon or so.
  • Elevator 2 working.
  • This is Jerry Medlock’s last day of full time service to the university.  But, as jerry says, since he has no shame, he’ll likely be back in the Student Lounge for coffee.
  • Brittinay is handling everything from public outage notices to mail.
  • Bret and Harvey are working on skylights.
  • Dale has trashed offices and is looking for something to do.  Yeah, it’s been that slow, people wise.
  • Pangea filled up with sewer gas.  The indirect sink drains behind the line are suspected as well as the plug in the servery tunnel waste line being left out overnight.  We are remedying both problems.
  • Java Stop is back on line.  Allan Bros. departing.  E102 error on coffee machine display solved by disconnecting and reconnecting twist-lock power under counter.
  • Ice machines suspected decontamination:  we thought we had an issue with ice in the Servery with the strong sewer gas in that area.  Spoke with Bob Z.  Machines are air cooled.  We are going to continue to remove the top layer of ice until Advanced Recovery has negative air going and then decon the outside of the machines.
  • More to follow…

Tuesday Dec 29, 2009

Tuesday update: 

0900:

  • Elevator 2 down, door assembly.  George, new elevator tech on campus, is on scene.  Nice fellow, from Thyssen.  Been here since 30 November.
  • Allan Bros. in to Java Stop for scheduled maintenance.
  • Andrew Gray came in to inspect the asbestos in the Women’s RR work, standing by for further details to scope and begin abatement.
  • Jay contacted, will be back and at work Thursday morning to continue assessment of water piping replacement needs.  Call Scott from Hammerquist (230-0504) to come back over and work with Jay on scoping the job.
  • Bret reviewed building mechanical plans and is assisting the scoping of work.
  • Brittinay is doing a bang-up job as the Building Manager.  She is going to handle building communications of issues and I will continue sharing updates at the director level.

Noon:

  • We have tv’d many lines and the crawler camera has been down the tunnel to the west side and there’s sludge aplenty.  Some asbestos to abate.  Still have not located the source of the break.
  • Closing restrooms on the East side. 
  • All restrooms now open except Ground level.
  • Deb is communicating with Robyn to leave Bites closed the remainder of the week.
  • Advanced recovery has set up in the Servery.  They have placed a decon entry point, ventilation air and are assessing for an estimate of services.
  • Brittinay is our building point of contact and will be updating the building on restrictions, remediations and use.

More later.
