FRIDAY SEPT. 9 at 4:00 AM to MONDAY SEPT. 12 at 6:00 PM

Dear BCOE Bourns B Wing WEST SIDE Occupants:

Beginning at 4:00 AM on Friday, September 9, 2016 exhaust fans in Bourns Hall west wing will be shut down as part of the B-wing renovation.  The shutdown will allow the addition of new openings and the installation of new ductwork into the plenum at the roof level.  This work cannot be accomplished safely with the fans on.  The shutdown is expected to last through Monday, September 12, 2016 at 6:00 PM.

The Construction Team understands the implications of this work to you research and safety and is dedicated to performing the work as quickly and efficiently as possible. 

To prepare for this shutdown, please ensure that any experimental procedures requiring hood work are completed IN ADVANCE of the shutdown.  Chemicals requiring active ventilation for safety reasons should be temporarily relocated if at all possible.  Systems that could be jeopardized or become unsafe without adequate ventilation should be disconnected, turned off, or otherwise rendered safe for the duration of exhaust shutdown.

Please let your department Lab Safety Officer or me know as soon as possible if you are in need of guidance.  Also, please let me know if you have questions or concerns.
