Description:
We would like a quote for the following: 1) Painting select walls in the 140 & 140A/B lab spaces. There are four sections of wall that have tile/brick. We’d like options for painting these sections. See attached pictures. 2) Removing the wall that separates rooms 140A and 140B—combining the two rooms into one. 3) Removing carpet in 140A & 140B are replacing with a low-cost hard surface flooring material—preferably similar to the hard surface flooring in the rest of the 140 space. This quote is needed for a projected project this semester. We are aiming to have this quote completed by 2nd week in September. Thank you for your timely assistance!

Cabinet repairs or replacement, replace flooring and update lighting. 142 Cabinets: I’d like to request a quote for the following repairs: 1.) Replace all base cabinet doors and drawers throughout Forker 142. Many are water-damaged and non-functional. OR replacing the entire cabinets pieces. 2.) Replace the wooden sliding-doors on the upper cabinets with tempered glass sliding-doors. 142 Floors: I’d like to request a quote for replacing the flooring and vinyl wall base throughout the Forker 142 lab space. Similar tile flooring is preferred. Lighting: I’d like to request a quote from the lighting maintenance team on replacing/updating lighting in Forker 142.

Please note: Forker 142 is an active lab with ongoing scheduled research so consideration will have to be given to scheduling work within the space to avoid disruption to research activities.
