As noted in previous communications this summer, the main cooling system for Dunton Tower was not in operation due to mechanical issues.  A rental cooling system was temporarily put in place to see us through the warmest days of the summer.

This rental cooling system had to be removed at the end of September to prepare for the winter heating season.   The next few days are forecast to be unseasonably warm, and without the rental unit in place, the building will be warmer than usual, particularly the offices on the South side of the building.  Facilities Management and Planning is aware of the situation.

To help mitigate this, the building ventilation systems will be run overnight to bring cooler outside air into the building.  We will continue to monitor and see if any additional improvements can be made

Thank  you for your understanding
