The City University of New York – Facilities Planning and Construction Management (CUNY FPCM) has contracted with Johnson Controls, Inc. (JCI) to replace the building fire alarm systems campus wide. This will be a multi-phased, multi-year project. In each building, the existing fire alarm system will remain active while the new system is installed. When the new system is completely installed, tested, and approved for use, it will be activated and the old system will then be deactivated and removed.

The first phase of work is scheduled to begin this week in the Campus Center (Building 1C) and the Library (Building 1L). All contractors will wear identification cards issued by the College, and all work will be coordinated through the College’s Campus Planning, Public Safety, and Environmental Health and Safety offices. Occupants of the buildings will be given advanced notification of work which will impact their areas.

Please direct any questions or concerns you may have to the Campus Planning Office at 718.982.3214.

Thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation as we modernize our building fire alarm systems and make our campus safer for everyone.
