Emergency generator test on Friday, Feb. 20th

Facilities Management will test the emergency electrical generators 1-2:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 20.

Buildings involved are Carlisle Hall, Engineering Lab Building, Engineering Research Building, Hammond Hall, Central Library, Life Science Building, Nedderman Hall, Trimble Hall, and Woolf Hall.

The test will only affect the electrical services tied to each building’s generator, not the entire building. There will be a slight “blip” lasting a half-second as the electrical service transfers to the generator and another as it is transferred back to the normal building service. Keep computer work in progress saved during this time to prevent any possible data loss.

Questions? Call Toby Buhrkuhl at 972-832-1490 or Jeff Johnson at 817-798-8456.

College Street closure starts today

South College Street between UTA Boulevard and West First Street will be closed beginning today Monday, Jan. 26, for infrastructure improvements. The street will reopen as soon as possible, depending on the weather.

Handicapped parking on West First Street will remain accessible via South West Street.

If you have questions or concerns, call either Toby Buhrkuhl at 972-832-1490 or Jeff Johnson at 817-798-8456.

Research labs and departmental break rooms will not be affected. Winter intersession courses in these buildings have been moved, except for one in Science Hall that cannot be relocated.

Restroom facilities nearby are in Carlisle Hall, Hammond Hall, Nedderman Hall, Preston Hall, Ransom Hall, Trimble Hall, and Woolf Hall.

Expect limited access on the east/west mall between the Chemistry and Physics Building, Trimble Hall, Chemistry Research Building, and Central Library.

For questions, contact Jeff Johnson at 817-798-8456.

Winter break 2014: Electrical Outage and clean refrigerator

Plan now to accommodate an electrical outage Friday, Jan. 2-Saturday, Jan. 3.

Facilities Management has scheduled the outage to complete major electrical updates in Davis Hall, Fine Arts Building (Main Stage Theatre only), Central Library, Life Science Building, Physical Education Building, Preston Hall, Science Hall, Smart Hospital, Texas Hall, Trinity House, and University Hall.

For those buildings with emergency generators, power will be supplied to support egress lighting, life safety, UTA Police dispatch, and all research facilities currently connected to the generator. All buildings will remain locked during this time.

To prevent any possible damage, Facilities Management recommends turning off all electronic equipment in the offices including computers, scanners, and copiers before leaving for the winter break. These devices do not need to be unplugged from their electrical outlets.

All refrigerators/freezers should be cleaned out before leaving for the winter break.

If you have questions or concerns, special requirements during this time, or newly established research that must retain power, contact either Toby Buhrkuhl at 972-832-1490 or Jeff Johnson at 817-798-8456.
