Repair work on chiller

The chiller in Brown Library, which supplies cooling water to Anderson Hall, Brown Library and Fishburn Hall is shut down temporarily for repairs. The repairs will take approximately a week to complete.

FMS will be running the Air Handlers during the cooler evenings and nights so the College can take advantage to the free cooling of the lower outdoor temperatures.

Facility Planning and Development Department Relocation

On Wednesday, April 23, 2014, the new Facility Planning and Development Department will relocate their offices from the College Services building to Business Science M228. The relocation will involve Kevin Witter, Judy Lienhardt, Angie Baughman, and Harry Stockton. Reggie Walker will remain in the College Services building until mid to late May and then transition to the new space. Each of the employees that are moving will retain their existing telephone extensions and email and should be available by phone and email once their move is complete.

Temporarily, Hunter Wright, will be moving into Judy Lienhardt’s former office in the FMS building and will assume some of the duties that Judy previously performed. Hunter will be the primary contact for phone calls to FMS, work orders, janitorial supplies, picking up or returning the keys for a state vehicle, and fueling. Hunter’s work hours are from 8:30 a.m.-3 p.m. on Monday-Thursday, and 8:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. on Fridays. In the event that Hunter is not available, Pat Rhodes will serve as her backup.

State Reservation directions are available on VW Connect in the links section on the right-hand side of the Facilities Management webpage. IMPORTANT: Employees are reminded to please let us know if your reservations are canceled, so that the state vehicle may be placed back in the pool for use by another employee who is traveling.
