Burst Water Pipe in Richcraft Hall

Jan. 20, 2020

To All Members of the Carleton Community,

Earlier this morning, pipes feeding two radiators in the vestibule of Richcraft Hall at the entrance to Tim Hortons burst due to the cold weather. The steam from the hot water triggered a fire alarm and the building was evacuated. Fire crews attended the alarm and the building was cleared for re-entry.

Elevator service in that area of Richcraft Hall is offline until inspections for possible water damage are completed. The water has caused minor damage in the underground parking area which is also being investigated.

The southwest entrance off University Drive is closed while work crews complete repairs. The southeast doors to Richcraft Hall on University Drive are also closed temporarily to ensure radiators there do not have similar problems.

Alternate access to Richcraft Hall is available from the east entrance directly into Tim Hortons or through the Steacie Building.

Updates will be provided as information becomes available.

Facilities Management and Planning appreciate your understanding as we complete these emergency repairs.
