Partial Air Conditioning Shutdown - St Lucia & Remote Sites

14 Dec 2020

Please be advised that a partial air conditioning shutdown will be happening over the Christmas break as an energy saving initiative.

Affected Areas


  • Start: Friday 25 December 2020
  • Finish: Monday 4 Jan 2021

Work details
The areas selected for the partial shutdown are generally offices and teaching spaces. Rooms with air conditioning which is normally set to run 24/7 are exempt from holiday scheduling and will continue to run normally. Teaching rooms managed through Syllabus Plus will also be unaffected by the partial shutdown.

If you plan to come to work on any day between Friday 25 December 2020 and Monday 4 January 2021, then please familiarise yourself beforehand with the location of the after-hours buttons for your work area.  If an office or teaching space has an after-hours button then, where possible, the air conditioning has been scheduled off during the Christmas/New Year period, but you can turn it on for successive 2 hour periods by pressing the button.


  • Please review the table attached and email Matthew Leditschke, Energy Projects Engineer prior to Monday 21 December 2020 if you foresee problems with the scheduling proposed for your work area or if your work area is erroneously exempt.
  • If there are any problems with air conditioning during the Christmas/New Year period then please contact Security on #51234.  There will be staff on standby to deal with scheduling issues or breakdowns.

We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your understanding during this time.
