Facilities Management is able to plan most events which result in a disruption of service in which case it is our responsibility to provide as much notice as possible. However, we are not in total control of our environment and there will be occasions when the weather or an unplanned break in a utility is the cause of the disruption or inconvenience. In most cases, Facilities Management is equipped to combat the effects of storms, to repair University-owned utilities or provide information on the return to service if the cause is not a result of a problem with University-owned systems.
Power failures can be the result of an incident with our own equipment or with equipment belonging to NB Power. In either case electricians will be called to repair the problem as soon as possible. If the problem originates with NB Power, Facilities Management has no control over the speed of restoration of power. Nevertheless, this Department will be in contact with NB Power and if you require this information you may contact Facilities Management Work Control (4889) during work hours or Security (4830) after hours.
As with power failures, disruptions and problems with the water supply can originate with either UNB or City of Fredericton equipment. Should there be any unplanned disruption in water service or any discolouration of water please notify Work Control (4889) during work hours or UNB Security (4830) after hours. The source of the problem will be traced and you will be advised regarding the return to normal service.
Failures to cooling, ventilation and heating systems are the responsibility of Facilities Management and should be reported immediately to Work Control (4889). They will investigate and perform the necessary testing and repair.
Failures to computer related facilities or audio visual equipment are the responsibility of those departments and should be reported to them.
