CW FA Dvc Ckt Repl 2022-10147 - Kerwin Hall Notification

On 4/15-4/19, AU Facilities Management will be renovating the fire alarm system in Kerwin Hall. Please see schedule of activities below.  


4/15-4/17 from 6:00 AM-2:00 PM – Installation of new fire alarm devices. Contractors will need to access throughout the building. Most devices are located in back of house areas, corridors, and stairs.

4/18-4/19 from 6:00 AM-8:00 AM – Testing of audiovisual devices. Bells/speakers will sound, and strobes will flash, both intermittently.

4/18-4/19 from 8:00 AM-2:00 PM – Testing with the audiovisual devices silenced so there will be no ringing or flashing but contractors will be working throughout the building.

Please note these dates are tentative and subject to change. The project team will attempt to communicate schedule changes in a timely manner.
