6/30-7/1 Instructional Building (L) Electrical Power Outage

Beginning Friday, June 30, at 10 p.m. electrical power will be shut off throughout the entire Instructional Building (L) and will be off through 8 a.m. Saturday, July 1.

This work is necessary to replace the electrical service transformer. To assist during this shutdown:

  • Please clean the areas above and around freezers and incubators so electricians can access the outlets behind them.
  • Please consolidate incubator, refrigerator, freezer and cold room space by properly disposing of materials that no longer require refrigeration.
  • Please update and post contact information on the front of your equipment.

Lab equipment that is ON Emergency and Auxiliary power will NOT be affected by this shut down. However, lab equipment that is NOT ON Emergency or Auxiliary power WILL be affected. BUMC Facilities is in the process of locating equipment that is not on Emergency or Auxiliary power. Please request electrical extension cords for the -80 Freezers and Incubators that are not on Emergency or Auxiliary power and they will be provided.

Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation. If you have questions or concerns related to facilities, contact John Barton at jbarton@bu.edu, Jeff Taillon at jtaillon@bu.edu, or call the BU Facilities Office at 617-638-4211. For research-related concerns, please contact Andrew Taylor at awtaylor@bu.edu.
