UVa Facilities Management
In a newly created streetside garden designed and built by Landscape Supervisor Chris Kern, Landscapers Shannon Adams and Mark Thomas give the Heuchera some extra attention. Located at the intersection of McCormick Road and Emmet Street, the garden will greet many of the 35,000 attendees during the May 18-19 Graduation weekend. In Pavilion Garden VIII, Landscaper Michael Leff mows the perfectly manicured turf to prepare for the 2013 Final Exercises on May 19th at the University of Virginia. Project Services Carpenter Quentin Walker (front) pushes a stack of chair pallets as some of the other 40 members of the Facilities Management shops (background) skillfully set up 21,000 chairs on the Lawn between 7:30-11:00 a.m. Thursday prior to the May 19th Final Exercises at the University of Virginia. (From left in front) UVa Director of Major Events Pam Higgins meets with Facilities Management’s Central Grounds Zone Maintenance Supervisor Darryl Napier and Project Services Finished Trades Supervisor Mike Gibson and (from left in background) the Environmental Health & Safety team – Frank Messina, Gerald Drumheller, and Safety Fire Safety Inspector Greg Harp – to review logistics of the Lawn setup for the May 19th Final Exercises. Through Chuck It For Charity, the University of Virginia and its partners have made move-out activities easier for many departing students and diverted tons of unwanted household items from area dumpsters and landfills. Facilities Management Recycling staff carry the load! Facilities Management Landscape Division's Ibrahim Mapre (L) and Michelle Beaudreau are among the landscapers assigned to special decorative plantings primarily in the North Grounds area. Here they check a test arrangement of Primrose in a less conspicuous area. Steve Ratliff, supervisory senior construction administration manager (CAM), explains the process used to strip paint from the pedimented hoods above the Rotunda’s main floor windows. All exterior ornaments at the Rotunda are actually sheet copper, not wood, pressed to form classical details and painted white. During the America Recycles Day in November 2012, UVa Scholars' Lab GIS Analyst Chris Gist magically captures an aerial view of the Lawn with the Recycle Logo in place. Facilities Management Landscape Supervisor Chris Ward noted that recent work on the south end of the Lawn received complete turf restoration during the winter break. Included was a new irrigation system installed on the turf in front of Rouss, Cocke, and Old Cabell Halls. Recycling workers (L-R) Jason Snow and Jamal Gordon are collecting residual cardboard from cardboard recycling efforts in which the boxes occasionally are not completely emptied.
