Dear colleagues,

The contractors will need only 15 minutes per fixture to replace the old light with new lights. Here’s a breakdown of the week’s work schedule:  

 

·       Monday, September 28: 17th floor and 16th floor

·       Tuesday, September 29: 16th floor and 14th floor

·       Wednesday, September 30: 14th floor and 12th floor

·       Thursday, October 1: 11th floor and 10th floor

·       Friday, October 2: 10th floor and 9th floor

 

We apologize for any inconvenience this upcoming work may cause and appreciate your patience as we work to meet our goal of being carbon neutral and reduce 80% carbon emissions by 2050.
