RSC mold abatement - 15 July 2015

Campus community,

Good afternoon!

Today, we began an initiative to remove mold and mildew from all three floors of the old wing of the Reynolds Science Center. This project is designed to improve the learning and working environment for our students, faculty and staff who are in the RSC on a daily basis. 

Each portion of this mold abatement project is designed to ensure that Henderson State’s response to the issue is sustainable and lasting. The process involves several steps:

  1. First, classes and labs for both the remainder of the summer semester will be moved into the newer portions of Reynolds.
  2. Next, the chillers that keep the building cool will be turned off and allowed to dry out.
  3. The piping will be cleaned and prepared for any needed repairs.
  4. Any issues with the chillers will be fixed.
  5. Classes and labs will be relocated.

During the process, Henderson State will work with Powers, Schneider Electric and EMTEC. Each of these companies is a leader in the industry, and we are all focused on ensuring that the environment in our teaching and learning facilities is cooled and dehumidified effectively. 

We will complete the project in time to hold fall classes in the old section of Reynolds. We appreciate your patience as we work to make Reynolds the best environment possible for our students, faculty and staff.

Thank you.
