  • interview/questionnaire of concern individual(s)
  • inspection above drop ceiling (condition of roof deck, pipe insulation, return air plenum)
  • inspection of ventilation system (operation of variable air volume box and outdoor air dampers, check controls, measurements of carbon dioxide, temperature and relative humidity, sources near outdoor air intake, measure return and supply air volume, cleanliness of coils, liner and condensate pan)
  • inspection of exterior
  • inspection below drop ceiling (housekeeping, sink and floor drain traps, signs of past and present moisture concern via visual and/or moisture meter, mold growth, ensure connection of current and capping of abandoned sanitary vents, odorizers, excessive plants and fabric items, identify potential pathways, and measure volatile organic compounds, carbon monoxide, and lighting)

Date of Assessment: January 30, 2020

A plumbing leak impacting casework occurred on January 29, 2020. The leak was corrected by Building Services (Plumbing) on the same day (Work Order #147549).

The ponded water was extracted from the floor, however wooden casework was impacted by the leak.

Holes were drilled into the casework to facilitate drying and fans were placed in the impacted area to assist in drying the casework.

The Office of the Environment visited the site on January 30, 2020 and confirmed the casework was dry using a moisture meter (wood setting).

No further action is required. The response actions noted above are intended to prevent microbiological growth.
