User Manuals

Vacating Space

How should vacated space be left?  All space(s) being vacated should be empty and left in a broom-clean condition.  This mean that floors are generally free of trash, but not necessarily vacuumed.  Additionally, departments do not need to worry about wear and tear types of damage that may exist from normal day to day use.

Should trash be removed when the department vacates the space?  All trash should be removed from the space by the time the department vacates, i.e. it should be included as a part of the trash that gets pulled from the space on a nightly basis.  Any trash that remains in the space after the move will be the responsibility of the department for the cost of the removal of these items.  Any unusual situations should be discussed with the assigned Project Manager ahead of time.

What should we do with furniture when vacating space?  All existing furniture in departments should remain, unless it has been coordinated with the MCC project team as part of the move to the new building.

What should we do with surplus electronics, including computers?  The University has a policy on surplus electronics. EH&S will pick up unwanted computers and related peripherals.

What should we do with our phones?  The MCC building will have all-new VOIP phones, so departments should leave all phones behind. Please coordinate with TFC with questions. TFC will deactivate all old phones so you will not have to pay for two lines.

What should we do about keys and cores when we vacate a space?  Doors for most spaces being vacated will have construction cores inserted after the department vacates.  However, there may be instances where this is not necessary and each move will be evaluated separately to determine what will be best.

Should I contact Human Resources to change my office location?  Yes, please contact your payroll administrator or HR representative to change your room location once you have moved. Also, if you are listed as an emergency preparedness contact in HRMS (building lab liaison, key management contact or emergency preparedness contact), you will need to contact your payroll administrator or business manager to update this in HRMS.

Building operations

Is there a cafeteria in the building?  There is not a cafeteria in the building.  There will be a Kaldi’s Cafe similar in size and service to that in the FLTC building but with a new venue and great service!  The Kaldi’s will be located on the 2nd floor along the link.  There will also be a new Coffee/Food Venue in the McDonnell Pediatrics building called FarmStead which will be managed by Bon Appetite. Both locations will open in the spring of 2017.

What appliances are provided in the support areas?  There are 3 support areas on each floor.  The 2 at the east and west ends of the building are the same size and will have 1 refrigerator, 2 microwaves, an ice/water dispenser and a coffee maker in each space on all WUSM Floors but level 11.  These support areas also will have space for 2 copy/printer machines opposite of the kitchenette.  The center support areas on 2, 9, 11 and 12 contain 2 refrigerators, 2 microwaves, an ice/water dispenser and a coffee maker.  These spaces do not have space for copiers/printers.

How do you clean the Wink walls in the building?  Most standard dry erase markers, in any color, can be used on the Wink surface, and wipe clean without “ghosting.” A microfiber or dry-erase cloth is recommended for daily erasing and cleaning. Using any other product voids the warranty and the wall would need to repainted.

Who should I call and how can I get repairs done to my space?  Assignable space is defined as space occupied by a specific institution or department.  Examples are, but not limited to; offices, waiting rooms, exam rooms, conference rooms, break rooms, suite aisle space between cubicles… Architectural elements in assignable space are defined as flooring, wall finishes, ceiling finishes (to include tile), and doors.

Each institution funds their repair, upkeep, and alterations of architectural elements in assignable space differently.  Repairs are defined as work needed to repair damage, i.e. water damage, damaged ceiling and floor tile replacement, etc.  Upkeep is typically defined as periodic refresh of space, i.e.… carpet replacement, periodic painting, complete ceiling replacement, etc.  Alterations are changes within the Assignable space driven by a change in program.  Alteration of Assignable space is defined as additions and/or removal of architectural elements within the Assignable space.

Repairs in assignable spaces:  WUSM will repair any MEPF or architectural element back to its original condition and no charges will be assessed to the occupant unless damage is caused by the occupant or its equipment.  The repair/replacement of any movable items, ie..furniture, personal property.., damaged would be supported by the party responsible for the failure that caused the repair/replacement.

If I want to change/improve my space, how should I go about it?  Contact the Facilities Integrated Service Center at 314-362-3100.
