Microbiology HVAC

This project consists of replacing the existing HVAC system in the Microbiology building.  The existing fan coil units that are located along the external walkways are beyond their lifetime and no longer energy efficient.  The units at each level will be replaced with new units.  The heating and chilled water piping will also be replaced.  Other improvements include painting the building exterior walls and handrails and replacing the exterior fascia.

Project Announcements

August 14, 2020

The following events are scheduled to take place next week, August 15, 2020 through August 21, 2020 for the CSULB Microbiology HVAC Upgrades Project:

Upcoming Construction Activities that may affect adjacent buildings next to the Microbiology Building

The following activities will take place next week and may cause noise. These activities will not be a constant noise, but will be at random short intervals and is not anticipated to be at a level that would be disruptive.

  • Phase 1 - Punch list correction verifications for exterior soffits and HVAC system to continue through next week.  Phase 2 architectural features for painting, soffit ceilings/lights and louver installation corrections are ongoing through next week.  Phase 2 HVAC system testing and corrections to the MEP punch list ongoing through next week. Building Phase 2 areas turned over the University on Wednesday July 22, 2020.  HVAC Systems Commissioning is still ongoing throughout next week.

The following activities will take place next week and will cause noise. We will keep a diligent watch on the noise that is emitted in order to keep it under Campus regulations.

  • Phase 1 Work – Punch list corrections for the Architectural and HVAC systems ongoing through next week. Phase punch list corrections of architectural, panting, and HVAC system to continue through next week. Phase 2 punch list corrections are ongoing. The project base scope of work completed on July 21 with troubleshooting and refining the new HVAC system through December 2020. 

This next week all deliveries to the central quad will be scheduled between the hours of 7:00 A.M. and 9:00 A.M.

  • Deliveries will occur during work hours throughout the week.
