This is our first notice regarding the Fine Arts Building 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or Toby Buhrkuhl, Facilities Management Electric Shop Supervisor, at email@example.com .
We will be sending additional reminders as the date of this scheduled outage draws near.
