Proper Procedure for Non-Emergency Work Order Requests


4DCC8DF2


PROPER PROCEDURE FOR NON-EMERGENCY WORK ORDER REQUESTS

When you notice something maintenance wise that needs repair in your labs, offices, hallways, bathrooms, etc. that is NON-EMERGENCYALWAYS put the request in Reaction via this link:  https://reaction.scs.illinois.edu/physicalPlant/.   Please be as detailed as possible in your description of the maintenance issue.

Examples of NON-EMERGENCY work orders include, but are not limited to, the following and DO NOT require a CFOP:
-Broken hood sashes(glass, tracks, rollers, etc.)
-Leaky faucets & sinks(slow drips not causing safety or flooding issues)
-Heating/Cooling Issues(if not affecting temperature sensitive research experiments/equipment)
-Lights or electrical outlets not working properly
-Most carpentry requests(drawers off track, fixing cabinets, tile replacement, etc.)

Examples of NON-EMERGENCY work orders that DO require a CFOP include, but are not limited to, the following:
-Stripping/waxing floors or cleaning carpets
-Removal of refrigerators & freezers
-Any repairs related to personal lab equipment(water baths, chillers, etc)

While the F & S crafts/trades people try to get to your request as quickly as possible, please know they have a 2-week window to complete non-emergency repairs.  However, they may be backed up on work orders submitted before yours or need to order parts for your maintenance repair that may stretch the repair beyond the 2-week timeframe.  If nobody from F & S has responded to your request after the 2 week timeframe, please let me know so I can follow up and get them there.

Please try to refrain from calling/emailing someone on the SCS Facilities and Safety Team(Danielle, Ron, Karla, Shane, Chad) with non-emergency requests as it may be delayed due to someone being out of the office, in meetings, or otherwise unavailable to check emails or voicemails in a timely manner.  One of us is ALWAYS checking Reaction and will get to your request as quickly as possible.  This also ensures your request does not get “lost in the shuffle” of emails if you put it in Reaction.

I encourage all lab groups to put this email in a binder or hung up somewhere so it can be referred to as needed.  This information will also be on the SCS Building Outages/Important Notices blog:  www.scsbuildingoutages.blogspot.com.


If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.

Removal of Ceilings - Ground Floor- RAL - U of I Campus Heat Recovery Project - Beginning June 3


TO ALL IN SCS:

Davis-Houk Mechanical, Inc. will be removing ceiling tiles on the ground floor of RAL beginning Monday, June 3.  This work will take place in the main corridor near the triple bank of elevators and is being done as part of the Campus(NOT SCS) Heat Recovery Project.   There will be a walkway passage while the work is being done so the area will not be completely blocked off.  Attached you will find a map of the location where they will be performing the ceiling tile removal.  Looking ahead, here is a tentative schedule of the work being done and when it will be completed:

·         5/31 or 6/3 – remove ceilings/lights etc.
·         6/3 – 6/7 – get any RFI’s or issues submitted for review/coordinate with AEI
·         6/10 – 6/14 – turn in/fabricate piping for hallway and hopefully resolve any of the issues found the week before.
·         6/17 – 6/21 – install new piping
·         6/24 – 6/28 – pressure test and insulate
·         7/1 – 7/3 – reinstall ceilings/lights


This information will be posted on the SCS Building Outages/Important Notices blog:  www.scsbuildingoutages.blogspot.com.  If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know so we can relay them to Davis-Houk and campus.

CONSTRUCTION WORK - RAL - CAMPUS HEAT RECOVERY PROJECT


To All:

Davis-Houk Mechanical will be breaking apart a large concrete base that the old compressor sat on in the basement mechanical space of RAL South this week.  During this work, you may notice some noise while they break it apart.   Once they get it broken up, they will pour a housekeeping pad for the new chiller.  The new chiller will hopefully be delivered and placed on approximately May 28.  Once that is completed, they will begin replacing the patio and sidewalks from June 3-June 12.   Attached you will find the points of egress during this construction.  Below is information to know while this construction is occurring:

-          Drilling vibrations should be minimal (comparable to the soil boring analysis earlier this year)
-          Construction noise will be loud (90+ decibel) and will be heard inside the building surrounding the courtyard.
-          The courtyard will have a drilling rig, bobcat, backhoe, etc. during construction
-          The street and sidewalk will be closed at times (contractor to coordinate)
-          Contractor will confirm start times, but end time will be difficult to confirm. The contractor cannot leave an open excavation and concrete placement needs to be completed as it allows (no stopping mid pour)


PLEASE NOTE:   This is part of the CAMPUS Heat Recovery Project and NOT an SCS related project.

If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know.

Thanks,

To All in Noyes Lab:

There will be a TEMPERATURE CONTROL COMPRESSOR outage TOMORROW(APRIL 2) from 7:00AM to 1:00PM.  This outage is being conducted to find leaking temperature control/compressed lines in the building.  Each line will be tested and you may notice some steam flow noise and overheating.  This shouldn’t affect any lab compressed air systems but it is a possibility. 

*IF YOU NOTICE YOUR AREA IS BECOMING ABNORMALLY HOT, OVERHEATING, UNDERHEATING, OR THE LAB COMPRESSED AIR IS BEING AFFECTED, PLEASE EMAIL DANIELLE(dcruzan@illinois.edu) SO IT CAN BE ADDRESSED ASAP!  

Further details of the outage are below:

Outage Reason : Trying to figure out where the leaking temperature control/compressed air lines are in the building while the weather is still cool outside.
Building Sections affected : entire building could be effected.

IMPORTANT LAB MAINTENANCE HOUSEKEEPING REMINDERS

IMPORTANT LAB MAINTENANCE HOUSEKEEPING REMINDERS


  • BROKEN GLASS:  If you break any type of glass, PLEASE clean it up ASAP!  The Building Service Workers(BSW’s) are not responsible for cleaning it up due to liability and safety reasons.  It is the responsibility of the lab occupants to clean up broken glass.

  • EMPTY BOXES:  When you empty a cardboard box and are no longer using it, PLEASE break it down before placing it in the hallway for removal!  This makes it easier to haul them away and takes up less space in the hallway.  One recommendation would be to designate a broken down box area near your lab space so everyone knows where to place them.

  • BIO BAGS:  PLEASE make sure you properly closing the bio bags when they are full and taking them to the autoclaves ASAP.  This is due to health and safety reasons and it is EXTREMELY important they do not sit in the labs open for days at a time.  The BSW’s are NOT allowed to touch them or move them at all.  The SCS Facilities and Safety team recommends all lab members get in the habit of removing them daily.

  • HALLWAYS:  The hallways are becoming an issue once again.  It is necessary to keep the hallways free and clear of any trash, carts, boxes, etc. at ALL times.  Not only for safety reasons but we do have prospective students, alumni, & other important visitors to our buildings that do not want to see cluttered hallways.  So please do your part and keep hallways cleaned up!

  • CLEANING SUPPLIES:  The SCS Facilities and Safety Team recommends you ALWAYS have a broom, dustpan, Swiffer(or some type of mop) available to lab members to clean up any broken glass, non-chemical spills, or other messes made throughout the day.   During lab clean ups, the BSW’s are not allowed to provide any cleaning supplies and must be provided by the lab members themselves.  If you would like a special request such as a deep cleaning of the floors(strip/wax) or large brutes with liners for your lab clean ups, you may put a work order in Reaction and provide a CFOP.


This information will be on the SCS Building Outages/Important Notices Blog(www.scsbuildingoutages.blogspot.com) if you need to reference it or need a refresher.  If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.
