ERB Electronic Crosswalk Warning System

ERB crosswalk’s electronic warning system awaiting upgrade

The electronic crosswalk notification/warning system on UTA Boulevard, north of the Engineering Research Building, will be out of service for an undetermined amount of time.

Signage regarding the outage is in place, but students, staff, and faculty need to take special precautions when accessing this crosswalk to ensure all pedestrians remain safe. Facilities Management has ordered a replacement circuit board, but is unsure of the delivery schedule.

For questions, contact Toby Buhrkuhl at 972-832-1490 or Jeff Johnson at 817-798-8456.

Business Building Temporary Power Outage Scheduled 5/1/2016

Temporary electrical outage Sunday at Business Building

A temporary electrical outage will  occur 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday, May 1, at the Business Building. The outage is required for maintenance to the building’s electrical service.

The Business Building is equipped with an emergency generator that will operate during the outage but will support egress lighting and life safety only. To prevent any possible damage, Facilities Management recommends turnning off all electronic equipment including computers, scanners, and copiers before leaving for the weekend. These devices do not need to be unplugged. All refrigerators and freezers should be cleared of perishable items.

For questions, call Toby Buhrkuhl at 972-832-1490 or Jeff Johnson at 817-798-8456.

Emergency Electrical Generator Testing – Friday, March 25th

Facilities Management will be testing the emergency electrical generators serving the following buildings on Friday, March 25th, between 1:00 p.m. and 2:30 p.m.:

Business Building

Davis Hall

Hammond Hall

Health Center

Kalpana Chawla Hall

Pickard Hall

Trimble Hall

University Hall

This testing will only affect the electrical services tied to each building’s generator, not the entire building.  There will be a slight “blip” lasting approximately one half of a second as the electrical service transfers to the generator and another as it is transferred back to the normal building service.  It is recommended you keep computer work in progress saved during this timeframe to prevent any possible data loss.  Please let your faculty and staff members know as necessary.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and thank you for your cooperation.
