Nunn federal building to reopen Monday

After a week of repairs to the Sam Nunn Atlanta Federal Center’s electrical system and a thorough safety check, nearly 5,000 federal employees who work in the downtown building will be able to return to their offices Monday.

The building is scheduled to reopen following efforts to repair the electrical problem that shut down the building last week, regional public relations officer for the GSA, Saudia Muwwakkil told Channel 2 Action News.

The electrical problem is in a “buss duct” that serves as a conduit to the building’s electrical system, Muwwakkil told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution last week.

“Therefore, the chiller plant and a large portion of the building’s electrical grid were rendered inoperable,” she said.

“We are on target to have the Nunn Center open for business Monday morning,” Muwwakkil said late Thursday afternoon. “Replacement parts are being installed now to get the facility fully functioning.”

The Nunn Center, which houses 21 federal agencies, was closed all week.
