As part of the Research Way Building Library Archives project, work will occur in the basement of the Research Way Building. Insulation mock-up work at the ceiling will happen starting around the first part of January 2021. The Research Way Building is located at 4700 SW Research Way in Corvallis. We are providing this early notification to the building users, and to those who visit from campus, that this activity may have the possibility of fumes and smells during the installation time. The mock-up work will occur during the first or second week of January 2021 and is anticipated to take three days to complete. Our general contractor will post signs at entry points into the basement to warn users of the insulation activity during this installation.
