Brief closure of Daniels wing – Mon Mar 8, 2021

Daniels wing will be closed from 6-10 am on Mon Mar 8, 2021.

The contractor needs to shut down 480v electrical service in the Daniels building to remove temporary circuits that were used for the tower crane.

This shutdown does not affect the 110v / 208v service in the building, which means it does not directly affect equipment in any lab or office.

This shutdown does affect all exhaust fans in Daniels, pumps that are integral to heating the entire Daniels building, and the main supply air fan for floors B-2 Daniels.  Restarting all of this equipment after a power outage is a somewhat elaborate process.

Since the exhaust system will be offline, occupants of the Daniels wing must ensure that there are no active experiments in fume hoods.  All chemical containers must be closed and capped.

THERE WILL BE NO IMPACT ON 110V / 208V POWER CIRCUITS IN MATHEWS AND DANIELS WINGS.

THERE WILL BE NO IMPACT ON THE PROCESS CHILLED WATER LOOP.

Shain tower will be unaffected.

Please note that it is not possible to schedule this construction activity during the period of the closure of the Daniels building, which begins the following week.  There is too much risk to the building if the fans and pumps do not restart at a time when there are other major impairments to the building infrastructure.

Thank you for your cooperation!
