To all that work at the Moscone Center:

We are sending this notification in an effort to keep you apprised of expansion work taking place at the Moscone Center. Please distribute this information to any coworkers that will be working at Moscone over the week of August 24th.  

We have just been advised that waterproofing of the new truck ramp at The Moscone Center will take place the week of August 24th.

This project will take place in 5 steps over the entire week. We have been advised that there will be a significant odor caused by several of the products being used. Every effort is being made to mitigate this odor however it will still likely be detectable inside Halls ABC.
MSDS sheets for each step of the process are posted here
