In an effort to resolve HVAC system noise and vibration at the Los Alamos County Municipal Building, the County and Jaynes Corporation, the original contractor hired to construct the building, have cooperatively worked through a third-party engineer to evaluate the issue and recommend solutions.
After thorough analysis and investigation, a corrective action plan and schedule have been developed. Starting July 2 through the end of August, crews from Jaynes and its subcontractors will work on duct system modifications to improve air flow in the following areas of the building:
- 1st Floor, near Customer Care;
- 1st Floor, Community Development and Public Works Department Offices, Suites 150/160;
- 3rd Floor, Entrance to the south stairwell;
- 3rd Floor, Men’s Restroom;
- 3rd Floor, Community Services Department Offices; and
- 3rd Floor, Council Work Room;
Work will be performed during the weekdays, and where necessary, in the evenings and weekends to minimize disruption to the public and County staff. Work within the 1st Floor hallway near Customer Care will be separated from public access with temporary separation walls while still providing pedestrian access through the hallway.
In coordination with implementation of the County’s new financial and cashiering software, the Customer Care Center will be temporarily located until July 20 across the lobby in the Boards and Commissions room. Signs and employees stationed in the lobby will help direct the public to this location.
Additional information or changes to the schedule will be published as necessary. Jaynes Corporation is performing this work at no additional cost to the County.
