VP&S Bldg. Advisory: Lighting Replacements, Oct. 5-9

October 5, 2020

To meet New York City's Local Law's 88 and 97 and to reduce approximately 524 tons of carbon emissions annually, we will be replacing fluorescent lighting fixtures throughout the Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons Building. There will be minimal disruption to your work. The contractors will need only 15 minutes per fixture to replace the old light with new lights. Here’s a breakdown of the week’s work schedule:  

  • Monday, October 5: 8th Floor 
  • Tuesday, October 6: 7th Floor
  • Wednesday, October 7: 5th Floor
  • Thursday, October 8: 5th and 4th Floors
  • Friday, October 9: 4th Floor

We apologize for any inconvenience this upcoming work may cause and appreciate your patience as we work to meet our goal of being carbon neutral and reduce 80% carbon emissions by 2050.
