Week commencing 20th May there will be maintenance work to the paved speed humps on the perimeter road of campus. The work will not require any closures or rerouting of traffic and all traffic will be able to pass through the area during the work.
There will also be work to the paved areas on Bigforth Drive during the night over the week commencing 23rd June 2013. This will not be noisy work and any traffic that does require access will be allowed through as directed by the contractors.
Any queries should be directed to the Facilities Helpdesk on 93333 or email us at email@example.com
The campus heating systems are scheduled to be switched off from 1st June until September for the summer shutdown. During this time essential maintenance work will take place.
Facilities would like to draw attention to the fact that use of localised electric convector heaters to supplement the building's normal heating systems are not normally allowed and heaters found in offices, seminar spaces, common areas etc. will be removed. The only exception to using electric heaters would normally be in a situation where there is a heating problem or failure, this would be authorised by the Facilities Maintenance team.
Disruption can be caused to University activities when electric heaters overload local electrical circuits. Also the use of electric heaters can artificially raise the temperature and can activate local temperature sensors in to switching off the heating system in rooms, spaces, floors and in some cases, the entire building causing inconvenience. If you are experiencing problems with your heating please report it on the Facilities helpdesk or calling 93333 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or report it online.
For additional information please refer to the heating policy on the Facilities website.
Next week work will start on the refurbishment of two of the retail units and seminar room 10 on the ground floor of County Main. This space will reopen at the end of May as the new offices for University Partnerships Programme (UPP) the managers of campus accommodation on Alexandra Park and County and Grizedale Townhouses. If you have any queries about this work please contact the facilities Helpdesk on 93333 or email email@example.com
Half of the Faraday staff car park has now reopened. A new access slip has been created to the car park from the perimeter road. A site compound has been created as part of building works for the refurbishment of the Department of Chemistry.
Staff car parking is still available on the perimeter road. We apologise for any inconvenience caused. For more information contact the Facilities Helpdesk on 01524 593333, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
On Tuesday 14th May between 7am - 7pm a crane will be temporarily erected for a day as part of the refurbishment of Bowland South East and Tower. In order to do this safely, part of Tower Avenue will need to be closed for the day. Access will be maintained to Helme's garage and the maintenance workshops. There will be no vehicular or pedestrian access along the Tower Ave road/pavement for the duration of the day. Any deliveries for the area will have to be made to Fylde Ave.
If you have any queries about this work please contact the Facilities Helpdesk on 93333 or email email@example.com
