If you've ever been to the Arlington Campus you might be familiar with the old law school. As Mason prepares to welcome the Institute for Digital InnovAtion (IDIA) in 2025 at the Arlington Campus, we wanted to share the building's unique history.⁣

After Kann's Department store closed in 1975, it was then acquired by GMU in 1979 to later become the Law School. The building became the only law school with an escalator, which students would use every day to go to class.⁣

The new IDIA building will be home to Mason Academic and Research space, extending Mason's role as a leading tech and research university.

Facilities is engaged in many COVID response projects to return back to campus in the Fall:⁣⁣
⁣⁣
• Hand Sanitizer Stations - We are installing all required stations in classrooms, elevator lobbies, and entry/exits as per SRTC plan.⁣⁣
• Classroom Markings - We are installing floor markings to meet spacing requirements in all classrooms. Signs for all classrooms and class labs are being placed, (1 on door and 1 inside room). Any rooms that didn’t get scheduled will not get prepped (furniture moves, occupancy sign, etc.) and will be locked for semester with an “off-line, do not enter” sign.⁣⁣
• Disinfecting Wipes - We are placing wipe stations in all classrooms.⁣⁣
• Space Management and Interior Design have evaluated classrooms for proper spacing.⁣⁣
• Graphic Design/Sign Shop have supported providing proper signage throughout Mason. ⁣⁣
• We are working with our providers/Mason experts to provide proper social distancing and protocols on our shuttles.⁣

As Mason prepares to go back to campus for Fall 2020, the school has implemented increased health and safety measures in order to protect students coming back. Housekeeping Services Director, Martin Myers and Nancy Haring, Assistant Housekeeping Services Manager, are both in charge of the cleaning and upkeep processes for all of the GMU campuses. With the help of LT Services, a company used for subcontracting, their dedicated employees have been with Mason since 1985. Every night, 130 housekeeping employees work from 10 PM-6 AM and perform heavy cleaning across all campuses. Then, during the day 20 employees are in charge of maintenance and emergencies. In order for the safest possible return to campus, more hand sanitizer dispensers have been installed, 31.96 acres of classroom carpets are vacuumed and shampooed weekly, and 9 million gross square feet of space is cleaned and maintained daily. Myers confidently noted that "when students get back, it will be ready." 👏 🙌 #gmufacilities #georgemason #gmu

Often overlooked, the Central Heating and Cooling Plant (CHCP) is one of the most important aspects of campus. Running nonstop, 24 hours a day, the CHCP is responsible for the hot and cold water used across Mason. Managed by nine workers during the day and four workers overnight, Facilities Management is responsible for 600 gallons of hot and 4,000 gallons of cold water per minute. After interviewing Jeff Counts and Rod Billones, CHCP superintendent and assistant superintendent, they stated that the Johnson Center alone requires 900 gallons of chilled water per minute in the summer. Not only does the plant have to be continuously running for students and faculty to be comfortable in the buildings, but this is also critical to maintain the infrastructure inside said buildings. #gmufacilities #georgemason #gmu

As students and faculty stay home to contain the COVID-19 outbreak, construction on campus continues. Due to the absence of people on campus, Facilities staff have seen at least one benefit. Instead of having to wait for school breaks to complete larger-scale portions of the construction projects, they can be done now while the campus is empty. We can't wait to see you back on campus. #gmufacilities #georgemason #gmu

In just a few months, the George Mason Fairfax campus will have a new addition to its skyline; a new and improved water tank.

The original tank was first built in the 1970s, and the City of Fairfax owned and operated the tank until 2014, when Fairfax Water acquired the city’s distribution system.

As for the brand new water tank, it will be 150 feet high and will hold 2.5 million gallons of water. The new tank will provide improved delivery pressure to faculty, students, and parts of the City of Fairfax, south of Route 236. #georgemason #newandimproved #gmufacilities

Did you know that GMU has its own Sign Shop? Every day, Maggie Acardo and Charlie Bobosh make signs for classrooms, bathrooms, buildings, school vehicles, and more for all Mason campuses. Both make about 50-100 signs a week, where they must be consistent with Mason branding, design, and colors. Every day is different. Since they are responsible for signage for all mason campuses, Bobosh describes it as having the "key to the kingdom," meaning that they are able to travel and provide input into new designs for signs in different buildings for all campuses. #gmufacilities #gmu

Every night while Mason students are asleep, a crew of two employees work from 10pm-6:30am to ensure that classrooms, hallways, bathrooms, and offices are free of graffiti and other markings. The ten workers, who together work the night and day shifts, not only take care of the Fairfax campus, but also Arlington, SciTech, Point of View, and the Potomac Science Center. Classrooms are constantly being retouched in order to maintain the aesthetics.

"If we don't have it, we match it" says paint shop supervisor, Jose A. Vasquez. Using a high-tech machine, workers are able to match any color given to them and use it for maintenance across all Mason campuses. With this machine, they can also store preset colors for specific buildings to use in the future. At least once a week, Jose comes in before his regular 6 AM - 1 PM shift for a weekly inspection, where he makes sure that his employees are sticking to the guidelines and there are no issues. The paint shop uses a special type of paint that has zero VOC (volatile organic compound); the paint releases no smell and has no chemicals. This is beneficial for both the workers and the students on campus and allows the painters to work more effectively. To keep George Mason university looking its best, around 20 gallons of paint are used a day, and about 7,500 a year. #gmufacilities #gmu
