Facilities Management is continuing to address a decrease in building cooling capacity for the majority of the buildings on the North side of campus. Repairs continue but additional parts are required from the manufacturer in order to fully complete the repair.
The chilled water system is currently operating with one smaller chiller. The larger chiller is down for major pump repairs, which keeps it from operating or producing chilled water. Currently, the majority of chilled water is being diverted to serve the Towers Residence Halls, Group Housing and Donald G. and Gloria King LaFerla Hall.
The result of diverting chilled water to these residence halls creates a situation where the majority of other academic buildings on the North side of campus are receiving reduced amounts of chilled water for cooling. Occupants of these buildings may experience times of indoor temperatures being higher than normal. These higher temps will especially be prevalent when outside temperatures reach the 80 degree mark. Weather variations may cause unanticipated fluctuations to interior temperatures.
The affected buildings of this reduced cooling capacity are as follows:
• Parker Hall
• General Services 1
• Mark F. Scully Building
• Rhodes Hall
• Magill Hall
• Robert A. Dempster Hall
• Johnson Hall
• Otto and Della Seabaugh Polytechnic Building
• Rosengarten Athletic Complex
Residence Halls that could be affected by the decreased cooling capacity are:
• Towers North
• Towers East
• Towers South
• Towers West
• Towers Central Complex
• Group Housing Buildings
• Donald G. and Gloria King LaFerla Hall
Facilities Management apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciates your patience as they perform these necessary repairs.
