The Medical Education Building Air Handling Unit Replacement project
continues.The next two air handling
units to be replaced serve the Bolivar
Street/Perdido Street corner of the 4th and 5th
floors.Installation of these units will
start at 6:00 PM on Friday, September 11th, and be completed by September
25th.In order to remove the old units
and install the new units, the contractor will erect a crane on Bolivar Street at
the intersection with the MEB loading dock. Subsequently, Bolivar Street will be closed from the
intersection with Perdido Street
to the MEB loading dock from 9:00 AM on Friday, September 11th, until 9:00 PM
on Sunday, September 13th.The sidewalk
along Bolivar Street
adjacent to the MEB will also be closed to pedestrian traffic.This is required to protect pedestrians from
any falling objects while work is being performed overhead.
air conditioning for the 4th and 5th floor quadrant C (Bolivar Street/MEB
loading dock corner) 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.
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
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.
next air handling units will be done in the same manner, with the Perdido Street/South Roman Street
quadrant being the next scheduled quadrant.Future notices will be published with information relevant to the
