Please be advised that the contractor, Brook Construction, under direction from Facilities Management will undertake upgrades to the Forest Center interior Atrium area (ceilings, walls), exterior glulam beams and associated woodworks, and exterior concrete walkways/ entrance areas of the Forest Center. This work is scheduled to start Monday, January 18, 2016 with some site prep and mobilization of equipment to site over the next 3 days.
Rerouting of pedestrian traffic will be necessary to facilitate this work. Barricades, signage, construction fencing, etc. will be used to identify and isolate access to construction areas in order to maintain building occupant safety. Where possible all disruptions to regular traffic flow will be kept to a minimum.
The key areas of concern for building access and egress will be the use of the FC main entrance doors ( #42 ad #43) on the main level (2nd floor). At any given time, access through one (1) of these doors may be limited and pedestrian traffic routed through the alternate. Please review the modified evacuation plan attached, and locations of other alternate exit doors (#’s 44 through 48) noted on the plans in case of an emergency.
Please adhere to all posted signs and construction barricades.
Inquiries concerning this project can be directed to Facilities Management at 639-6530, or 637-6224.
Facilities Management appreciates your patience and co-operation while it undertakes this important work.
