Mother's Room
Project Dates: July 7 - July 25, 2014

The Employee Lounge in the Student Union (SU-106) will be out-of-service for approximately 3 weeks as we complete renovations to add a Mother's Room to our campus per the provision of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, H.R. 3590. The new Mother's Room (SU-107) will provide a private space other than a restroom that can be used by breastfeeding mothers.

The Employee Lounge area will be divided into two spaces to accommodate this requirement. As soon as we can provide access to the lounge area, we will reopen that portion of the room while we complete construction on the Mother's Room. Please use the student dining area for seating during construction. Microwaves are available near the ATMs in the northwest dining area. We anticipate 3 weeks of construction, but will work to restore access as soon as possible.

We apologize for any inconveniences this work will create and appreciate your patience. If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Facilities Management Department at (623) 845-3030/3145.

Room Temperatures 
Project Dates: Effective July 1, 2014

As you know, on March 5, the Chancellor's Executive Council decided to implement a temperature set point policy across the entire Maricopa District, beginning July 1, 2014. This means the summer set point is 75° (with a 3° occupancy bias). Winter set point will be no more than 72° (with a 3° occupancy bias). See Room Temperatures for more information.

Sidewalk Repairs 
Project Dates: June 23 - Until Completion 

Sidewalk repairs begin the week of June 23rd and continue until completion. The repairs require removing and replacing sections of sidewalk across the campus. This work is noisy as it requires the use of jackhammers to remove existing sidewalk sections. Work will start early in the morning but there will be overlap into our regular business hours. Barriers will be placed around the work areas, so staff and students will have to find a different way to your destinations by going around the site. 

We apologize for any inconveniences this work will create and appreciate your patience. If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Facilities Management Department at (623) 845-3030.

Parking Lot Repairs 
Project Dates: June 25 - July 25, 2014 

Starting June 25th, the parking lots immediately north and east of Life Sciences will be repaired ( see map). The repairs are extensive and will require the parking lots and a portion of Vogel Ave. to be taken completely out of service. There will be some deep repairs made to stabilize the sub-grade where extensive potholes have developed then all the asphalt will be milled off and new material laid down.

In addition to the new pavement surface, there will be some work in the fire lane NE of HT2 where the water ponds after every rainstorm. They will be cutting in a new drainage gutter to help relieve the water and send it to the retention basins on the west end of the campus.

Much of this work is noisy. There is no getting around jackhammers and milling machines. Work will start early in the morning but there will be significant overlap into our regular business hours. The project site will be fenced off so staff and students will have to find a different way to your destinations by going around the site.

The work is scheduled to be completed no later than the first week in August but we expect it to take much less time than that.

We apologize for any inconveniences this work will create and appreciate your patience. If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Facilities Management Department at (623) 845-3030/3145.
