Outrigger Removal on the Roof

Starting 12/20–22 and 12/27–29/2023, the removal of the outriggers on the roof of Ross Hall will commence. This process is a safety requirement to have all of the outriggers decommissioned and removed. Please be advised that this work may produce noise. We are working with the contractor to minimize disruption as much as possible. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.


Drywall installation in Ross Hall Lobby Area

Drywall installation in the lobby of Ross Hall will begin on the evening of 12/19/23. This involves erecting scaffolding on the open stairwell from the 1st floor to the 2nd floor. We understand that this may impact the flow of foot traffic in the area, and we appreciate your patience and cooperation during this time. The drywall installation is expected to be completed by 1/6/24.


We kindly ask all staff, researchers, and students to exercise caution and adhere to any posted safety guidelines or detour instructions during these construction activities.


Annual Certification of the Eyewash

GW Facilities will be conducting certification testing of all eyewashes and safety showers on 12/20–12/21, in conjunction with the partner vendor who completes the certification process. Testing entails general operational testing of each unit to ensure that all units meet required safety specifications regarding flow, pressure, etc. An escorted technician will access each laboratory that has an eyewash and/or safety shower to conduct the inspections.
