Ceiling lights on the 3rd Floor of the FOSS building

Good afternoon,

Please feel free to reach out to your Dean, should you need to request an alternative workspace.  

If you have additional questions or concerns, please contact the Facilities Department.

Update: Roof Repair Report

Dear Campus Community, 

We are gearing up for day two of Opening Week and are looking forward to seeing folks around campus! This is a follow-up email to yesterday’s roof repair email.  

As promised, the full report from PBS Engineering and Environmental, Inc. (this is the company that conducted the Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) testing) can be accessed here.  The results of the onsite inspection indicated that, based on the Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) readings in and around the building, the odor created by the adhesive is non-toxic.   

If you are experiencing a reaction to the odor, we are more than happy to explore alternative work options, including relocating to a different facility to ensure conducive and comfortable working conditions. Please reach out to HR to make a request.  

In addition to the odor, we understand that noise from the roof repair may become distracting and hard to work nearby. Please reach out to HR to request an alternative work area.  

If you have additional questions or concerns about this, we encourage you to reach out to the Facilities Department.

Just a few more days and campus will be full of students making decisions to better their lives, and we get to be a part of that! 

Thank you for all that you do for our campus and students! 

Update: Roof Repair Work at the 5000 Building

Dear College  Community, 

The health and safety of all members of our college community are a priority at Shoreline. In response to concerns and questions raised about health risks related to the roof repair work at the 5000 building, Shoreline engaged the services of PBS to test toxicity levels throughout the facility.  The results of the onsite inspection indicated that, based on the Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) readings in and around the building, the odor created by the adhesive is non-toxic.   

The full report is available immediately, upon request, from the Facilities Department. A web link to the report will be provided as soon as it is posted.   

We understand that occupants of the 5000 building may still experience a reaction to the odor.  In these cases, please work with your supervisor and HR to explore alternative work options, including relocating to a different facility. 

Please contact Facilities if you have any additional questions or concerns.
