First published Friday, January 20, 2023
The University awarded a contract for HVAC repair and replacement.
This emergency/quick purchase was required due to a situation in which immediate repairs were needed to prevent further loss or damage to University property.
The Molecular Biology Research Building (MBRB BLDG 919) located at 900 South Ashland Avenue, Chicago, Illinois 60612 experienced a failure of various air handling units, automation controllers, and steam to hot water exchanges due to flooding that was a result of the hazardous sub-zero cold weather that occurred between December 24, 2022 and December 27, 2022. The inclement weather caused HVAC evaporator coils to freeze that then caused water pipes to burst, flooding 11 air handling units, automation controllers, and steam to hot water exchanges. Vendor is providing repair and replacement to the equipment and related systems that are necessary to allow for the HVAC system to provide adequate heat.
