Dear BCOE Colleagues:

UPCOMING SHUTDOWN DATES FOR THE Bourns Hall 2nd floor Renovation and 1st floor HVAC retrofit HAVE BEEN REVISED. 

Below are the latest dates.  

ROOF REPLACEMENT AND FAN/STACK DELIVERY AND INSTALL: Craning and installing roof equipment is now scheduled for December 16th through January 3rd.  As a result:

  • Large cranes will be staged for the east wing on December 16th and moved December 26th to service the west wing.
  • There will be an EXHAUST SHUTDOWN for EAST SIDE of B-wing: December 19th through December 23rd.  Hazardous materials work will not be allowable during this time.  Also during this time there may be occasional, intermittent HVAC (heating and air conditioning), chilled water, industrial water, house vacuum, and electrical shutdowns. 
  • There will be an HVAC and EXHAUST SHUTDOWN for WEST SIDE of B-wing: December 26th through January 3rd. Hazardous materials work will not be allowable during this time.  Also during this time there may be occasional, intermittent HVAC (heating and air conditioning), chilled water, industrial water, house vacuum, and electrical shutdowns. 
  • Between December 19 – 23 there will result in a 4-5 day shutdown of lab chilled water, industrial cold water, and house vacuum to allow upgrades to the plumbing systems.

PLEASE PLAN YOUR LAB ACTIVITIES ACCORDINGLY AND NOTIFY YOUR RESEARCH TEAMS.  Safety during this time is paramount. Holidays tend to be a favorite time to work for persons unable to travel home during the season.  Except for activities necessary for maintaining safety, lab work during this time is strongly discouraged.

If you have questions or concerns, please let me know as soon as possible so that any necessary control measures can be put in place in advance of the shutdowns.

There is never a time when research interruptions or building shutdowns are welcome or convenient.  Please let me know how best I can help you or if you need assistance planning or preparing for events.  Please also let me know if you have questions or concerns. For copies of this and other updates as well as other potentially helpful information, please also visit the Bourns B Renovation web page.
