Jordan Hall Closure Tonight for Utility Switchover

by necmusic

October 18 Update 

Mike Ryan reports: Our Northeastern Mitigation Project is proceeding right on schedule and I could not be more pleased.  

We have now reached a phase of construction that will require us to terminate existing infrastructure systems and tie in new electrical and gas services and activate new mechanical equipment. 

We will be doing this work according to the following schedule:  

Beginning Thursday October 18, 2012, at 11:00 pm, Jordan Hall will be closed until Friday October 19, 2012, 7:00 am.  During that time, the electrical power will be turned off to allow the electrical subcontractor to terminate existing systems and energize the new electrical feeds. 

On Friday October 19, 2012, from 7:00 am until 3:00 pm, gas service that is supplied to Jordan hall will be shut down to allow the plumbing subcontractor to connect new piping to the meter. Please note that during this process our existing gas line will be purged and it is possible that there may be a gas odor.  It is not a dangerous situation and it will be monitored throughout the shutdown period. 

Students, Faculty and Staff should be aware of the following: 

Security staff will do a complete sweep of the Jordan Hall building beginning at 11:00 pm on Thursday, closing all practice rooms and studios.  Also they will lock the entrance doors to Jordan Hall at 10:50 pm and not allow any individuals into Jordan Hall other than construction workers. 

Charles Membrino, Director of Information Technology Services, has these instructions:

  1. All Jordan Hall computer users should power off all office equipment when leaving NEC today.
  2. ITS staff will be at NEC at 7:00 AM Friday morning to restore services and resolve any issues.  Users experiencing issues should report all problem the ITSHelp Desk at (617) 585-1235.
  3. A confirmation message will be sent when all Jordan Hall technology services have been restored.  

 Tishman Construction, our Operations team and Mike Ryan will work closely tomonitor and assess progress of the work.  They are responsible to maintain a safe working environment throughout these periods. 

As always, if you have any questions or require further information please do not hesitate to contact me at
