Malfunctioning Air Conditioning Closes Brodie Gym To July 2
Durham, NC - Due to a malfunctioning part with the air conditioning system at Brodie Recreation Center, the building closed at 12:30 p.m. Friday and will remain closed through the weekend.
Meghan Weiseman, facility coordinator for Brodie, said that a part in the air conditioning unit broke down Friday morning. Staff from Duke's Facilities Management Department worked to fix the problem but determined it wouldn't be resolved without a new part, which may be delivered to Duke as early as July 2.
Weiseman said that due to extreme heat expected in the Triangle throughout the weekend, Brodie will remain closed until at least 5 p.m. July 2.
