2018 Morningside Campus Annual Steam Shutdown

May 14, 2018

The 2018 Annual Campus Steam Shutdown is scheduled to begin on Thursday, May 17, 2018 at 8:00 p.m. with service restored at approximately 2:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 19, 2018. This shutdown is necessary to facilitate needed repairs and maintenance to the campus steam system that cannot be performed during normal operations. Maintenance activities will be performed in mechanical spaces and will not be visible to most staff and visitors.

Please be aware that heating services in academic buildings – including heat, hot water and humidification – will not be available during the steam shutdown. Air conditioning will operate as normal except in locations noted below. Facilities will make every effort to maintain normal building temperatures during this time. Please contact the Facilities Services Center immediately at x4-2222 if there are any unexpected issues or concerns.

Additional Maintenance Work:
Chandler Hall Fume Hood Shutdown – A comprehensive maintenance of the building’s central fume hood exhaust system will be performed on Friday, May 18 starting at 7:00 a.m. and ending at 7:00 p.m. Fume hoods will be unavailable for use during this time and until recertification occurs.

Fairchild Building – We will upgrade the controllers for two main air handlers that serve the building which will require a controlled shutdown to minimize the impact to the building’s cooling and ventilation systems. This work will coincide with the steam shutdown schedule.

Your support and assistance in helping us maintain our equipment in working order is greatly appreciated. We apologize for any inconvenience.
