T-Dust Alert #65 – Modernization of Air Conditioning System – Guadalupe Hall Upper Floor

WHAT?  Work will be conducted to replace all air conditioning control boxes located above the ceiling.  The air conditioning system will operate normally during the work with no outages anticipated.

WHERE?  The replacement work will be conducted only in Guadalupe Hall, specifically in the small gym, main hallway, and offices.

WHEN?  The work is scheduled to begin on Friday night, June 9, and be completed by Wednesday, July 17, and will be conducted only at night between 10:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m.
