RESOLVED: Some Campus Buildings Experiencing Power Outages

RESOLVED  9/9  6:00 AM  

The Medical Research Lab (MRL) will be fully open without restriction as of this Monday, September 9. 2013 at 6:00 A.M..  

UPDATE: 9/5/2013 2:56pm

Just a quick note to advise as of mid-evening yesterday, we successfully transferred permanent power back to Sayles Hall at a time that was conducive and without imposition to the University community.  We will be providing an update on status and progress relative to the Medical Research Lab (MRL) later this afternoon.  

UPDATE 9/4 22:50

We are proceeding with our efforts regarding the status of the Medical Research Lab (MRL) in priority phases.  As you know, we are committed to preserving the integrity and criticality of research.  Subsequently, we have pursued measures to ensure there is power utilizing different resources to stabilize equipment in the following research locations. 

·         Room 104 

·         Room 105 

·         Room 107 

·         Room 201 

·         Room 306 

·         Room 405 

Additionally, the subsequent phase concentrated on restoring temporary power to life safety systems and services in the building which has been achieved.  General power including lighting and heating, ventilation, air conditioning systems and services will remain unavailable for the remainder of today, Wednesday, September 4, 2013 

Our investigation on building conditions and impact to MRL services and systems continue but we recognize some complexities which we hope to better understand tomorrow.  We will provide an update during the morning hours tomorrow, Thursday, September 5th advising on our progress.  If you require assistance in access to alternative space during this interim period, please advise and we can collaboratively work in consultation with several campus departments on pertinent resources.



UPDATE: 9/4  12:33 P.M.

We are in the process of restoring service and systems to the following buildings and expect completion before or by 1:00 P.M.
  • Fones Alley 8
