Update 8/23/2013

KOH is one week behind on proposed schedule due to materials and setup.

Update your schedules so everyone is aware of the changes

The next shut down will be for heating water for levels 7 & 6 for Sept 23 – 25.



The pipe replacement project has begun again. KOH Mechanical is continuing the project with Craig as the foreman. They are starting on the northeast corner floors of 6 and 7 (Letsou and Howard Labs on 7, Kardon and Pritham Labs on 6). They’ll be in each section approximately 4 days, then proceed in a clockwise direction.

The first phase of construction involves mounting the new pipe parallel to the existing pipe. Craig hopes that the disruption of lab work will be minimal. Once all of the pipe has been installed, they will connect it to the system and go back around to each section to remove the old pipe. This will be slightly more invasive as they will cover everything in their path, however, they don’t expect it to take more than one day in each lab bay.

We have lab space available on the 2nd floor if you feel that relocating would be better for your lab than working around the construction.

Craig will be onsite to answer any questions that come up. He will also stop by at the end of each week and give us an update on the progress. If you have any questions or conerns you are welcome to contact Natalie, 5-5462 or Gene, 5-5055.
