The motto for this project is nec elit—no surprises! Check here for construction activities and progress.


 

Week of January 15:

Concrete saw cutting will take place in the highbay on Monday and possibly further into the week.

Monday is an official OSU holiday, but some tenant employees and grad students may be in the facility. Here’s the thing about saw-cutting: it is loud! On a positive note, this will be wet cutting, so dust will not be generated.

Folks whose work areas are in the highbay will obviously hear the machinery most directly—I will get with you re ear protection.

Folks in the first floor labs and offices and on the second floor, you will hear the sawing, and it will be for the most part tolerably annoying or annoyingly tolerable. We will have earplugs for anyone who would like to use them at various locations:

  • Top of mail boxes in the lobby
  • ounter area east of the kitchen
  • Window sill by coffee area on 2nd floor

We'll keep you posted on any changes as we become aware of them.

Best, Danielle

Week of January 8
Construction activities in the ATAMI highbay on Monday, Jan 8, will involve removal of the plate glass windows along the north wall. Contractors will install secure and made-to-fit boards to cover the openings.

Week of December 11
1. Immediate changes to parking availability in the east (rear) parking lot:

  • Starting tomorrow, Tuesday, December 12:  East lot will begin to be used to deliver and stage construction materials. If you have been a traditional east lot parker, you can reduce congestion and risk of damage to your vehicle (and self!) by, starting tomorrow, parking in one of the other approved lots. Building access via the east mandoor is not adviseable.
  • Starting January 2:  East lot will be closed for ATAMI parking and dedicated to contractors and freight and construction deliveries.

Alternate parking options are the NE lot and the lot south of Building 10. See PI and P2, respectively, on the map below. Building access from the NE lot is also shown. Please remember that the lot in front (immediately west) of ATAMI is visitor parking for B10 and B11.

2. Interior fencing will enclose the initial construction phase area
 Around mid-week, fencing will be erected in the highbay to protect facility residents and users from construction activity. Building access at the NE mandoor will not be affected. As work progresses, access via the NE mandoor may become a hazard, at which point, folks parking in the NE lot, will be able to access the building at the NW mandoor (first entering B10 as shown on the map). We will keep you informed!
