  • Facilities Management Update: Planned Electrical Shutdown – May 11 and 12

    To ensure a reliable electrical distribution to the Brock University Main Campus, Facilities Management is planning the annual electrical shut down for the following group of buildings:

    • Welch Hall
    • Scotiabank Hall
    • South Block
    • Walker Complex
    • Taro Hall
    • Student Alumni Centre
    • Plaza Building
    • Lowenberger Residence
    • Village Residence
    • Kenmore Centre

    This shut down will take place Friday, May 11th, 2018 starting at 10:00 p.m. and will be completed by Saturday, May 12th 2018 at 10:00 a.m. This shut down will allow for repairs and preventative maintenance on our electrical infrastructure in order to feed and sustain power to our growing University. No other areas on campus are scheduled to be impacted during this time.

    Failure to properly maintain electrical infrastructure could lead to extensive damage and/or fire in a fault condition. Facilities Management is committed to providing a reliable and safe power system for the university and community. The second weekend in May through to 2022 has been chosen to conduct this work when demand and occupancy is at its lowest. On these dates only buildings in the group are scheduled to be impacted.
