In accordance with Western Washington University’s COVID-19 response, Facilities Development & Capital Budget personnel are primarily working from remote locations. The Incident Command System team at Western has established three goals for preparation and response to COVID-19: to protect life safety and minimize the spread of the coronavirus illness, to maintain – as much as possible – the continuity of Western’s operations, and to communicate with our communities as fully as possible.
We remain committed to the University, our clients, and our projects and will continue to work throughout the emergency. Most FDCB personnel can be reached by phone or IM on their Skype desk phones at the usual number, and all are available by email. Remote meetings can be scheduled through Skype and Microsoft Teams.
To keep work flowing, there will be occasions when some staff members are on campus, for example, to oversee construction sites, attend bid openings in the parking lot, or coordinate work requiring a physical presence. All social distancing protocols will be observed while on site, and offices will remain closed to the public.
We expect our projects to continue to move forward and will post any changes in office status or policies to the Facilities Development and Capital Budget website.
