Emergency Water Outage – Architecture Building, Maverick Activities Center, Nanofab Building

During the below outage, the fire hydrant was found to be leaking.  Unfortunately, the valve on the City of Arlington’s main line will need to be replaced before this leak can be repaired. The City would like to schedule an estimated one-hour water outage at the Architecture Building, Maverick Activities Center, and Nanofab Building for today, Friday, January 6th, beginning at 12:00 noon.

All restrooms in these three buildings will be closed during this time period.  EH&S – Yes, this will affect the fire lines in these three buildings.

We apologize for the short notice, but the City needs to get this leak repaired before it creates an additional ice hazard.  If you have any questions or concerns, let us know.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Life Science Building Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning Preventive Maintenance

In order to complete preventive maintenance and clean coils in the Life Science Building’s air handling units, the shutdown of these units will be required.  The Office of Facilities Management is scheduling these shutdowns during the Holiday Break.  Various air handling units will be affected from 8:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. each day on Wednesday, December 28th; Thursday, December 29th; and Friday, December 30th.  The shutdown of these units will be staggered so they are not all non-operational at the same time.  This should allow the cooling and heating from the remaining operating units in the building to keep the temperatures relatively comfortable during these three days, especially with the shutdowns taking place between 8:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. only.  No air handling units serving the 5th Floor Animal Wing will be shutdown.

Please let your fellow faculty and staff members know as necessary.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and thank you for your cooperation.  If you have any questions, concerns, or special requirements during this time frame, please contact either Scott Willis at wwillis@uta.edu or Bill Cheek at billc@uta.edu .

Business Building Electrical Outage

This is our second notice regarding the College of Business electrical switchgear replacement project scheduled to take place over this year’s Holiday Break.  This project will require an electrical outage for the entire building beginning December 26, 2016, to last through January 1, 2017.  The building’s emergency generator will remain operational during this outage, but will support egress lighting and life safety only.  No one will be allowed in the building without an escort from Facilities Management and/or the Police Department.

All refrigerators/freezers should be cleaned out.  To prevent any possible damage, we also recommend you turn off all electronic equipment in the offices including computers, scanners, and copiers before leaving for the Holiday Break (these devices do not need to be unplugged from their electrical outlets).  Please let your faculty and staff members know as necessary.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and thank you for your cooperation.  If you have any questions, concerns, or special requirements during this time frame, please contact either Jeff Johnson, Facilities Management Director, at jljohnson@uta.edu or Toby Buhrkuhl, Facilities Management Electric Shop Supervisor, at tbuhrkuhl@uta.edu .

We will be sending additional reminders as the date of this scheduled outage draws near.  Again, thank you.
