Dear BCOE Faculty:

You are included in this email because your lab or office are located in Bourns Hall B-wing EAST (Chairs for impacted faculty are also included).

The logistics for accomplishing work on schedule and in time to open critical instructional space for Winter Quarter are again complicated by the arrival of materials necessary to complete the work.

To enable completion, the Contractor has asked for a new date change that will impact the EAST side of Bourns B-wing.  The change will mean shutdown begins early morning on THURSDAY, DECEMBER 22nd instead of Friday, December 23rd.   As before, hazardous work will not be allowed during shutdown, and ideally no work at all will occur in the building. The schedule for the west side remains unchanged.  Electrical outlets will remain operational during the shutdown.

I understand the fluctuating schedule has potentially impacted research planning and added to your teams’ inconvenience.  I am hopeful that we can accommodate this proposed change with minimal disruption. I very much appreciate your continued patience, cooperation, and understanding.

Please let me know your thoughts or special needs associated with the new date.
