Hammer Bldg.: Temporary Steam Service Disruption, Nov. 16

November 16, 2021

Steam systems will be temporarily unavailable throughout Hammer Health Sciences Center from 2 p.m. to approximately 7 p.m. on Tuesday, November 16, due to emergency repairs.

During this time, there will be no hot water, sterilization, autoclaves, steam tables, or dishwashers available throughout the building. Heat will also be disrupted, and occupants may experience unusually cold temperatures while the work is being completed. Eyewash devices and overhead emergency shower units will be functional but will be supplied with cold water only. Accordingly, please consider limiting research operations that have significant potential for splash or face and bodily exposure during the shutdown.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Estefany Ziskin, senior project engineer, at ea2894@cumc.columbia.edu.
