The Facilities team has planned a building wide power outage for Mechanical Engineering to complete some work associated with research lab improvements in the basement. The power outage will impact all power in the building; however, some of the building systems will be on emergency power.
Building: Mechanical Engineering
Date: January 10, 2023
Time: 5:00 AM – 8:00 AM (Approx. 3-hours)
Outage: Complete Building Power Outage*
*Note: The building does have emergency back-up power, which will supply power to the following things once the generator kicks in 5-10 seconds after the outage.
Items on emergency power:
- Exhaust fans for fume hoods
- Air Handlers
- Process chilled water pumps
- Server room cooling (4170 only)
- Network switches (ME_4170 only – Space does have UPS to keep things on during switch to emergency power)
