Summary of disruption: Technicians from MetaBIM, a space management consulting firm under contract to Facilities Planning & Management (FP&M), will conduct space surveys at The College of Business Administration (Building 162, 163 and 164) starting on Monday, May 20. Space surveys will occur weekdays from approximately 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Findings from the surveys will help the university improve its space management capabilities and maintain accurate space records. The surveys are expected to be completed in early June.

Reason for disruption: Allow the space contractor to help the university maintain an accurate inventory and measurements of all instructional spaces on campus. This work is vital to obtaining resources as part of the CSU capital planning process and to enhance campus space utilization. An FP&M staff member will accompany contractors at all times, and contractors will carry a MetaBIM employee ID for identification.

How does this affect me? Technicians will use digital imaging and measuring equipment inside classrooms, teaching labs, and faculty and administrative offices/workspaces. The work will be conducted around summer session schedules to avoid disruptions, and technicians will only survey unoccupied classrooms and labs spaces. Any sensitive or personal equipment should be removed or locked away during the survey dates, but technicians will work around the items.

What do I need to do? Offices and workspaces may need to be vacated for several minutes to allow technicians to conduct digital imaging and room measurements. Occupants may remain at their office to observe. Please share this information with others in the buildings who may have not received this message.
