Campus Updates- All Staff (12/3/21)

Hi Campus Community,  

Here are this week’s updates! 

RETURN TO CAMPUS/COVID-19 

  • We are closely monitoring changing conditions of the pandemic, including the new Omicron Covid-19 variant, and have discussed the latest information at the Communicable Disease Team (CDT) and the Executive Team (ET).  
  • Student Vaccine Attestation: New in-person or on-campus students attending winter quarter 2022 need to complete the COVID-19 vaccination attestation form by January 20, 2022 (10th day of the quarter) to avoid getting a hold put on their registration account.  
  • Vaccine Clinic 
    • The next weekend clinic will be on December 4th and 5th in the Main Dining Room (MDR) in the PUB/9000 building for children ages 5-11 to receive the second dose of the Pfizer vaccine.  Make a follow-up appointment here. Expect thousands of people on campus that weekend so there will be no walk-ins accommodated. 
    • The clinic will close on December 17, 2021, in order to move to the Quiet Dining Room (QDR)/room 9208 and then will reopen on January 4, 2022.  It is expected to stay open throughout the winter quarter M-F 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and will continue to offer COVID-19 vaccinations for ages 5-adult and booster shots for ages 18+.

This week Subject Matter Experts from across campus began their final walk-through in preparation for User Acceptance Testing (UAT) beginning on December 13th. UAT allows users to begin testing the processes that will be part of the day-to-day work for employees and is a major milestone on the way to Go-Live on February 28th, 2022.   We greatly appreciate your patience while everyone is hard at work on the project. Stay tuned for more project updates and information on learning opportunities that will be shared in the coming weeks!

HSAMCC – Update With Photos

  • Phase 1 Logistics plan is in full effect. Signage is up, fence lines have been shifted, and the construction site is now fully contained. All site visitors need to check in the site office and wear proper PPE if out on site.
  • Clearing and grubbing of vegetation around the perimeter of the 2500 building has been completed.
  • TESC (temporary erosion sediment control) program to manage stormwater runoff is in place. The 5,000 gallon capacity tank seen onsite is in place to assist with this.
  • Rerouting of underground power to 2300 was completed.
  • Temporary parking and striping at the track have been finished.
  • Demolition started on Monday 9/27 and the 2500 building is completely down. Along with the demolition of the 2400 North Building and greenhouse. Dust control measures work as intended.

Demolition of Buildings 2500 and 2400 Begins this Week

Beginning Monday, September 27, the existing 2500 building and the North portion of the 2400 building will begin demolition activities to make room for new foundation and utility work for the HSAMCC Building.

These activities will last for the next 3-4 weeks and will occur Monday through Friday from approximately 7:00 a.m.-5:30 p.m.

There will be an increased volume of trucks exiting and leaving campus along with flaggers and signage to assist with traffic control. Noise from an excavator chipping away at the existing buildings is also expected. There will be dust controlling measures in place along with air monitors set up around the site to ensure no particulates leave the construction area. They plan to work the demolition from West to East of the existing buildings.

Please plan accordingly as it may take longer to navigate in and around campus.

Campus Power Shutdown September 24-26

College community,

As part of our preparation work for the new Health Sciences and Advanced Manufacturing Classroom Complex (HSAMCC), a power shutdown will be conducted on campus from noon on Friday, September 24 through 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 26.  Impacted buildings include the following:

  • 1800
  • 2100
  • 2200
  • 2300
  • 2400
  • 2500
  • 2600 (generators will be provided for MLT refrigerators)
  • 2700
  • 2900 (generator will be provided for Biology and Chemistry refrigerators and for the refrigerator on the lower level)
  • 3000
  • 5000

The shutdown will not interfere with IT services.  Campus vendors, including Avanti, have been notified of next week’s action as well.

Please be sure to remove all personal food and beverage items from refrigerators in these buildings by September 23.

We understand this shutdown may create a temporary inconvenience, but it is important to keep the HSAMCC project moving forward and on schedule.  Other inconveniences related to the project will occur over the next two years as well.  Please remember the end-product of all this work and sacrifice will be a new, state-of-the-art facility designed to better serve the needs of our students and community.

Thank you.

Full Campus Power Shutdown on Sat, September 11

While a full campus power shutdown was previously announced for August 21, it did not occur due to a scheduling change with Seattle City Light. Please be advised all campus power will shut down this Saturday for approximately 8 hours.

Note: Care should be taken to remove or dispose of any perishable food stored in campus breakroom refrigerators.

Full Power Shutdown of the Entire Campus

Date & Duration:

Saturday, 9-11-21, 7 AM to 3 PM, 8 hours.

Areas Affected:

All power to the entire Shoreline Community College Campus. The work will be performed in the Building #9000 Electrical Room adjacent to Mail Room. Seattle City Light will be accessing their electrical vault in the East access road.

Purpose/Scope:

To perform required maintenance work on the electrical switch gear in Building #9000. This will allow electricians to safely perform smaller localized shutdowns for the HSAMCC project and other future projects on campus. It will also help mitigate campus electrical outages or electrical gear failures in future. Eaton will be cleaning and testing the switch gear in building #9000.

Thank you.
