Outdoor Services Wins Facilities Management Constellation Award

The CU-Boulder Outdoor Services team was recently awarded the Facilites Management Constellation Award. Every month, one team and one individual, are awarded for doing something 'above and beyond' their normal duties. Although the team is used to clearing snow, there were three back-to-back snow storms in the duration of about two weeks. Ryan posted about the challenges this created.

The team was recognized for being timely with addressing the snow storms, sufficiently clearing our streets, sidewalks and stairs, and also clearing some city streets that run adjacent to campus to ensure a safe path for campus constituents.

For most of these storms, this included the crew being on campus at 4 a.m. or earlier, in single degree temperatures, to get everything clear before people started arriving.

Thank you for all of your hard work! Everyone appreciates clear roads and sidewalks that make getting to campus safe and effortless-besides the need to bundle up of course!
