To All:

Davis-Houk Mechanical will be breaking apart a large concrete base that the old compressor sat on in the basement mechanical space of RAL South this week.  During this work, you may notice some noise while they break it apart.   Once they get it broken up, they will pour a housekeeping pad for the new chiller.  The new chiller will hopefully be delivered and placed on approximately May 28.  Once that is completed, they will begin replacing the patio and sidewalks from June 3-June 12.   Attached you will find the points of egress during this construction.  Below is information to know while this construction is occurring:

-          Drilling vibrations should be minimal (comparable to the soil boring analysis earlier this year)
-          Construction noise will be loud (90+ decibel) and will be heard inside the building surrounding the courtyard.
-          The courtyard will have a drilling rig, bobcat, backhoe, etc. during construction
-          The street and sidewalk will be closed at times (contractor to coordinate)
-          Contractor will confirm start times, but end time will be difficult to confirm. The contractor cannot leave an open excavation and concrete placement needs to be completed as it allows (no stopping mid pour)

PLEASE NOTE:   This is part of the CAMPUS Heat Recovery Project and NOT an SCS related project.

If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know.
