Moving/Closing Labs and Equipment Repair/Disposal

Help with moving your lab and/or desinfecting/disposing of equipment

Moving/Closing Down a Laboratory

In order to close down or move your lab, you need to work with members from EHS to ensure that the proper steps are taken and all hazardous materials issues are addressed. Your first step in getting ready to close down or move your lab is to read our guide for moving/closing labs. It will answer many of your questions, and will give you ideas for additional questions you might want to ask the EHS move representatives.

After you have read the guide, you can contact any of the individuals below if you have questions about specific hazards:

Jeremy Byble at 4-0128 for questions about radioactive materials and permits.

Zachary Wilson at 4-5954 for questions about biomedical materials.

Jerman Lopez at 4-0344 for questions about hazardous chemicals and chemical wastes.

For an additional, broad-view perspective and to review the mechanics of moving to the Anschutz Medical Campus, visit the Office of Institutional Planning Transition Management.
