Construction work at Cass Gym, Sangamon and Menard halls

Work has begun to repair brick and replace windows and doors at Cass Gym, Sangamon Hall and Menard Hall. There will be equipment and work on the north side of Sangamon and Menard halls for the remainder of the summer. There will also be equipment and work around Cass Gym, including the removal of the main (south) entry doors to Cass Gym during this same time frame. Please be sure to use the west door of Cass Gym (closer to elevator/Fitness Center) during this period.  We anticipate this work to be ongoing through early August. Please use caution and be aware of all construction traffic as you walk in these areas. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Tim Ervin at 786-9605 or at tim.ervin@llcc.edu.

Drinking water

In an effort to help prevent the potential spreading of viruses, all LLCC drinking fountains, bottle fillers and ice machines are currently out of service. Staff are advised to bring individual containers of drinking water with them from home. Bottled water will also be available in vending machines.

Sidewalk removal and replacement work begins Monday

Starting on Monday, May 11, contractors will begin sidewalk removal and replacement work at the Child Development Center and other locations on the Springfield campus. We anticipate this work to be ongoing throughout June and July. Please use caution and be aware of all construction traffic as you drive and walk in these areas. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Tim Ervin at 786-9605 or at tim.ervin@llcc.edu.

Restroom access on campus

During this time of limited access to LLCC buildings, Facilities Services would like to remind staff that most college restrooms have been cleaned, disinfected and closed. Restrooms that are currently available for use are located on the first floor of Menard Hall, close to Student Services, as well as in the lower level of Sangamon South, below the LLCC Police Department.

Your patience and cooperation is appreciated as we strive to maintain a safe environment.

Flooring installation continues in Sangamon Hall

Contractors are continuing to install flooring on the second floor of Sangamon Hall this week. They will be using caution tape to section off areas where they are working. Other areas that have bare concrete floors are acceptable to walk on. If anyone needs access to an office, classroom or other space that is unavailable, please call Tim Ervin at 786-9605 or at tim.ervin@llcc.edu.

Use of facilities during winter recess

Winter recess will begin on Saturday, Dec. 21 and continue through Sunday, Jan. 5. In an effort to conserve resources anytime the college is unoccupied or officially closed, lighting is reduced and building temperatures are adjusted outside of the normal comfort range. Staffing and maintenance activities such as cleaning, and snow and ice control are adjusted as well.

In order to help plan and schedule service efficiently during winter recess as well as the rest of the year, LLCC Facilities Services asks that all use of college facilities by your department be updated and scheduled in EMS (virtual and desktop).

Testing and maintenance scheduled for today

LLCC Facilities Services is coordinating annual testing of the fire alarm system in the Workforce Career Center today, Nov. 25. While we strive to keep disruptions to a minimum, it will be necessary to activate the strobes and audio devices during these tests. Your patience is appreciated as this necessary testing is performed.

Also, Blackboard has notified LLCC that the college system will be offline for maintenance today at 11 p.m. This work typically takes an hour. If time extends beyond that, an update will be sent.
