Miller Center bridge/sidewalk temporarily closed

The Miller Center bridge/sidewalk will be closed (no access), beginning Wednesday, Dec 17 and will remain closed until Friday, Dec. 19.

Construction crews will be making utility connections in this location and all pedestrian access will be restricted for safety purposes. Pedestrians should use the upper gate on the concourse to Kentner Stadium to access campus from Lots U, U2, U3 and V or can choose to park in an alternate location on campus.

Reynolda campus temperature setback during the holiday period

A message from Facilities and Campus Services:

To conserve energy over the winter holiday period, the facilities department will be implementing a temperature setback program of campus buildings starting the night of Dec. 23 until the morning of Jan. 2.  The setback program will maintain building temperatures at no less than 55 degrees during the holiday period. Since the University will be largely unoccupied during the nine day period, we anticipate the lower temperatures will not cause undue hardship. At the same time, this program will generate significant cost savings through reduced energy consumption. The program has saved over $241,000.00 in energy costs over the last six years.

Beginning at 2 a.m. on Jan. 2, heating systems will gradually return the buildings to comfortable conditions. We intend for all buildings to be at 70 degrees by the time employees arrive at work on Jan. 2. Facilities technicians will arrive early on that date to ensure building heating systems reactivate as scheduled.

Staff or faculty who intend to visit or work on campus during the holiday period are advised to wear appropriately warm clothing and consider bringing a light jacket or sweater to work.

For departments that would like an exemption from this temperature setback for justifiable cause, please contact Ed Bullington at bullinew@nullwfu.edu or 758-3913 as soon as possible.

Thank you for supporting this effort to save energy during the holiday period.

WakeUnited Live United: Mike Draughn

Mike-Draughn-300x175For the last two years, Mike Draughn, director of maintenance and utilities services, has served as the WakeUnited departmental coordinator for Facilities & Campus Services, but his commitment to United Way goes back a lot farther.

“Since the early ‘80s, my wife and I have made United Way our highest giving priority after our local church,” says Mike.  “It’s an honor to work with and help coordinate the folks within Facilities & Campus Services.  They are truly some of the most dedicated supporters of United Way and givers of their resources and time of any group I have been affiliated with.”

Parking lot closures for ‘Project Pumpkin’

Project Pumpkin will be held Wednesday, Oct. 29. In order to accommodate buses that will be loading/unloading children from the community, closing of partial parking lots is required. Whenever parking lots are closed for event parking, carpooling is a smart option to consider as it saves gas and time looking for a parking space.

Parking Lot Closures/Restrictions: The inner perimeter (parking spaces closest to the sidewalk) of parking Lot P will be closed. School buses will be loading/unloading in this area. Please use caution.

Faculty/Staff Parking Options: Parking Lot J, located behind Collins and South Residence Halls, is available for faculty, staff and general parking. This lot is the least utilized on campus and should provide parking throughout the day. Parking Lots A, Q and Wake Forest Rd. in front of the Chapel have routine openings on a daily basis.

If you have any questions, please contact Alex Crist at 336-758-2558.
