NOTICE: The Medical Education Building Air Handling Unit Replacement project continues with the successful replacement of the two air handling units that serve the Perdido Street/Bolivar Street corner of the 6th and 7th floors.  Final tests are being performed on these units this week.  The next two air handling units to be replaced serve the Bolivar Street/MEB loading dock corner of the 6th and 7th floors.  Installation of these units will start at 6:00 PM on Friday, June 19th and complete by July 3rd.

 

Facility Services will begin setting up temporary air conditioning units on June 15th in labs and offices in the affected quadrants.  Consequently, there will be an electrical outage on Friday, June 12th from 5:00 AM to 7:00 AM.  During this outage there will be no power to equipment plugged into receptacles in labs and offices that are served out of main panels DL6C and DL7C which affects panels LC6A, LC6B, LC6C, LC6D, LC6E, LD6F, LC7A, LC7B, LC7C, LC7D, LC7E and LC7F.  Receptacles are labeled in the labs, identifying the panel that supplies the power to the receptacle.  During this electrical outage, breakers will be installed to serve the power panels for the temporary air conditioning units.

 

As part of the temporary air conditioning setup, Facility Services will be connecting duct work to discharge the rejected heat into the hallways or exhaust ducts.  Power cables from the temporary power panels to the temporary air conditioning units will be installed.  Condensate drain lines from the temporary air conditioning units will be connected to sinks and/or floor drains.  

 

Please note that the exhaust will be operating normally, which means that all fume hoods will operate normally.  Air handling units on the roof will be providing conditioned air into the labs (as they normally do) and this will help to cool the lab spaces.  Additionally, the other three quadrants on these two floors, as well as the rest of the building, will have normally functioning air conditioning. 

 

During the continuing construction period, should there be any issue with the air conditioning in your space, please call 568-7715 or 568-7716 and provide your name, contact information, room number and description of the problem.  Occupants should not attempt to adjust the temporary units on their own. 

 

Future notices will be published with information relevant to the affected quadrants.
