Arntzen Hall & Ross Engineering Technology (AH & ET) - The power switch conversion last evening was successfully completed. There are absolutely no overload problems and business is back to normal. There will be a future shutdown when the transformer is replaced and we will make sure you receive all the pertinent details about that shutdown at that time.

Academic Instructional East (AIC) - The domestic hot water pump for the AIC building is no longer functioning. The Plumbing Shop is working on the pump but will be unable to repair it until several necessary parts are received. It could be a day or two before those parts are obtained. In the meantime the AIC will not have hot water. Academic West and Communications are the closest buildings with hot water if needed.

From 5 am to 6 am on Monday, April 20.

Arntzen Hall (AH) - Early Monday morning repairs will be made to the main electrical feeder for Arntzen Hall. This shutdown will affect all normal electrical circuits in AH but not those fed by the generator which includes egress lighting. This shutdown will not affect any other areas or buildings. As with all electrical shutdowns we suggest turning off all equipment before you leave the building on Friday that could be affected by a disruption of the electrical system.

Ross Engineering Technology (ET) - The contractors working on PW679 need to disconnect the water from the existing sink in ET 328 to remove the sink and cap utilities. As a result, there will be no domestic water on third floor of Ross Engineering Technology Building from 7 am until 8 am on Monday 4/20/15.

Fine Arts (FI) - The Main Entry at FI 100C will closed for renovation from 8 am Wednesday April 22, 2015 through 8 am Wednesday May, 13, 2015. A temporary wall will be constructed so the existing doors can be removed and the new ones installed minimizing disruption to the rest of the building. The remaining entries and exits will remain open for access to the building during this work. When the FI 100C entry is complete, we will then move to the FI 100 entry and start renovations there. This will take approximately an additional week. Below is the floor plan to help visualize the location of FI 100c.

During this period of time all loads serviced by the emergency system will not be functional, including fire alarm panel, egress lighting and security panels. When complete the building will be backed up by the new generator.
