Roof Top Air Handling Unit Replacement

Contractors will be replacing the roof top air handling units on April 15. A loading zone with a crane will be set up temporarily beside the basketball court near the Park Road entrance to remove the existing units and lift the new ones to the roof. Traffic may be stopped for a short while to set up and take down the loading zone. The basketball court and fenced children's play area outside Room 204 will be unavailable while the crane is present. The facility will remain open and you will be able to attend programs as usual without interruption. Throughout the week, there may be some temporary disruptions to heating and cooling in parts of the building. It is advisable to wear multiple layers to be better prepared to adjust to variable temperatures.
