Informational Notice Regarding Steam Heat Season Start Up

Building Occupants,

With the start of fall term, our Fall weather has arrived.  The question has come up How does CPFM Facilities Services determine when steam to heat buildings is turned on in the Fall and off in the Spring.

To help clarify, David Ward, Building Automation Systems Manager (6-2303) lists below the criteria his staff uses to moderate steam to your buildings.

Please keep in mind, if we turn the steam on or off too frequently each season, it is very hard on the infrastructure serving our building’s mechanical systems.

If we turn on, and then day temperatures reach 70+ degrees, we are all too warm.

Steam is turned on in the Fall when:

  • Night time outside air temperature is below 50 degrees for five consecutive nights
  • AND daytime temperatures are below 70 degrees for five consecutive days

Steam is turned off in the Spring when:

  • Night time outside air temperatures are above 50 degrees for five consecutive nights
  • AND the daytime temperature is above 70 degrees for five consecutive days

Building Occupants,

To coordinate Pacific Hall outages related to the Pacific B-2 Renovation Design and Construction project managers Nick Pritchard and  Jen Miley have put together a timeline of events starting September 9, 2017, through December 18, 2017. These outages will vary from building wide to only impacting certain rooms. The purpose of this email is to provide an overview and reference.  Nick and Jen have been working closely with building users to document lab equipment and how this might impact departments and institutes. Going forward intentions are to provide this overview and continue to communicate building wide outages email notifications for anything that is impacting building wide services. For outages that are localized to individual rooms, the project managers will be communicating directly with occupants.

For questions or concerns related to this timeline please contact CPFM Design and Construction Project Managers  Nick Pritchard 541-346-9139 or Jen Miley 541-346-1530.

4/12/17: Shutdown of PLC heating systems for emergency repairs

Building Occupants,

The damaged pump which is causing a lack of heat in Prince Lucien Campbell Hall (PLC) will be repaired tomorrow, April 12th. This will require all heat in PLC to be shutoff in order to safely repair the damaged pump. Once the pump is repaired, the entire system will need to be refilled with water. The actual repair is expected to take up to four (4) hours, assuming all elements fall into place. Refilling the system will take an unknown amount of time.

Zone maintenance personnel are installing an additional fill point to expedite the process, but due to the age, size and volume of the system, we cannot calculate the exact time heat will be restored. When the system is restored, you may hear noises as trapped air works its way out of the system. If you see any water leaking, please notify customer service immediately at 346-2319.

For additional questions on how this may impact your services, please contact Jim Cody at 541-346-2302.
