AUTOMATED BUILDING SYSTEMS
University Facilities Management’s Energy Management office provides round-the-clock computerized monitoring of mechanical, utility and alarm systems in each building. Call the Building Automation and Control Center (BACC) for the following services:
• Scheduling of heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems:
• from the Office of the University Registrar for classes;
• for special events; and
• for office hour scheduling.
• Maintenance on all automation system hardware and software; and
• Alarm monitoring and maintenance.
REPORTING ROOM AND BUILDING AIR QUALITY CONCERNS
Building Curators should coordinate with University Facilities Management to assist with maintaining the comfort level of their ambient air room and/or building environments. If air quality in an office space is not satisfactory, the Zone Maintenance office must be contacted by calling 330-672-2345. Zone Maintenance staff will determine whether the heating or cooling equipment is in good working order, and then will follow-up when adjustments or repairs to the equipment are needed.
BUILDING HVAC SCHEDULING REQUEST FORM
Heating, ventilation and air conditioning building systems are not in operation twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. To assist the Energy Management office with providing the best possible HVAC services, Building Curators should complete a Building Heating and Cooling Scheduling Request form for scheduling on the building automation system. This Adobe Acrobat .pdf form is available as a link on the University Facilities Management’s Energy Website: https://www.kent.edu/ufm/building-hvac-scheduling.
Whenever a Building Curator and occupants of their respective building need to have HVAC equipment scheduled, the Building HVAC Scheduling Request form should be retrieved from the Website, completed, and then faxed to the Energy Management office at: 330-672-WATT (9288).
