Dear labmembers --

Please be reminded that the upcoming SNF renovation begins shortly
-- we need your help!

- CAD Room Storage by Oct. 24:  This will become the new maintenance
workshop.  Make sure to remove all your personal items from the CAD
room (Allen 151) by Oct. 24.  Undated items or Items in boxes dated
>  one year have been removed.  Items not removed by Oct. 24 are
subject to disposal.  If you are from off-campus, are NOW ACTIVELY
working in the lab and require access to your items, let us know and
we will find temporary storage space.

- ASML/SNF Visitor/Consultant Cubicle area by Oct. 24:  This area
will be reconfigured to accommodate displaced staff members and
existing occupants.  All personal items must be removed so planning
may begin.  The area will remain available for use by visitors and
consultants until it is reconfigured, but all personal items should
be removed and stored safely off-site.

Part 2 of the lab storage cleanup will be on Dec. 12.  By 9 am, all
personal items must be removed from the lab storage bins and wip racks.
The renovation involves extensive construction on the HEPA's and space
above them, so your personal items will be safer outside the lab.  We
also need space to accommodate four new etchers, so storage bins will
  be reconfigured and reassigned when the lab reopens.

Just a reminder that construction begins on 12/15/11.  Individual tools
will be shut down before then as we stage for the long term shutdown; we
will post plans as they are finalized.  The lab will be open for occupancy
on Feb. 1, 2012, but be aware that this is when staff is allowed back
into the lab.  There will be a startup period as tools are brought back online.

If you have any questions, please contact any staff member.

Thanks for your attention --

Your SNF Staff
