Fall heating adjustments being made at main campus

With the arrival of fall and cooler temperatures, Brock University Facilities Management trades staff have prepared the main campus heating systems for winter operation.

Due to the type of heating and cooling systems used on the campus, many buildings are not capable of heating and cooling during the same cycle. Heating and cooling is provided to the majority of main campus buildings from the cogeneration plant. Stand-alone heating and cooling systems are provided for the Cairns Family Health and Bioscience Complex, Plaza Building, Kenmore Centre, Harrison Hall, Lowenberger Residence, Village Residence and all satellite campuses.

As we experience typical autumn daily cycles of low nighttime temperatures and warmer daytime temperatures, some areas on the main campus will experience temperature fluctuations due to cooling becoming unavailable and heating becoming available. Facilities Management staff will continue to make the main campus as comfortable as possible by bringing cool fresh air into the areas that are normally cooled in the summer by the central chilling plant.

If your area is experiencing any extreme or ongoing temperature issues, notify Facilities Management at extension 3717 or facilitiesmanagement@brocku.ca or contact David McArthur, Associate Director, Maintenance and Utilities at dmcarthur@brocku.ca so the situation may be investigated.
