Helicopter Set to Lift Equipment Onto Founders’ Roof February 9
February 6, 2014
On Sunday, February 9, weather permitting, the UT Dallas facilities management team will work with contractors to move an air handling unit and exhaust fan to the roof of the Founders Building via helicopter. Normally a crane could be utilized, but due to limited space and the terrain around the Founders Building it wasn’t feasible. The air lift will take place between 7:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. and should be completed quickly. The flight path will run from the end of parking Lot B off Lookout Road, to the roof of the Founders Building.
