FCC3 Construction Status: Construction activity on the Feynman Computing Center roof is scheduled to start this Wednesday (9/30/09) – weather permitting. The related activity on the ground will be generally focused on the west side of the building, south of the recycle bins. Construction fencing will be setup around the perimeter of the construction area.
In order to clear the area, the bike stand will be temporarily removed and replaced with a portable bike stand that is already located in front of FCC. The smoking area and picnic tables on the west side of FCC have been relocated north behind the handicap parking spaces.
At least a portion of the back row in the auxiliary/remote parking lot (closest to the beam line) will be coned off and reserved for construction activity and parking.
Reminder: The requalification period for Performing Work in CD Computer Rooms and CD Computer Room Hazard Analysis training has changed from two to three years to synchronize the expiration of the training with the expiration of your Fermilab ID card, which also expires every three years. Once your ID card expires, you cannot enter the computer rooms via the card readers. You must re-apply for entry authorization by presenting your new card to Mark Thomas. Also, starting now, you must have taken the above-mentioned training just prior to your application. This ensures that everyone who works in our computer rooms is in compliance with training requirements.
