Picture this: it’s a few weeks before the Texas Longhorns football team takes the field for the first home game of the 2022 season. It’s August, and the unyielding Texas heat lingers in the air, permeating the campus. Now imagine the air conditioning (AC) unit that serves the elevator control room at L. Theo Bellmont Hall (BEL) fails, which in turn causes the elevator systems there to automatically shut down as a heat safety measure.
