NOTICE: The Medical Education Building Air Handling
Unit Replacement project continues with the installation of two more air
handling units. The next two air
handling units to be replaced serve the South Roman Street/Perdido Street corner
of the 6th and 7th floors. Installation
of these units will start at 6:00 PM on Friday, July 10th, and be completed by
July 24th. In order to remove the old
units and install the new units, the contractor will erect a crane on South Roman Street . Subsequently, South Roman Street will be closed from
the intersection with
Temporary air conditioning for the 6th and 7th floor quadrant B will be installed this week. As part of the temporary air conditioning set-up, Facility Services will be connecting duct work to discharge the rejected heat into the hallways or exhaust ducts. Only a minimum number of ceiling tiles in labs will be removed or disturbed during this process. Power cables from the temporary power panels to the temporary air conditioning units will be installed and condensate drain lines 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 two week 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.
The remainder of the 6th and 7th floors will be done in the same manner, with the South Roman Street/MEB loading dock quadrant being the next scheduled quadrant. Future notices will be published with information relevant to the affected quadrants.
