Energy savings project underway

SMART construction project logoConstruction of a new 5.5 mile chilled water loop is set to begin Dec. 6. The project may cause some disturbance to pedestrian routes in the heart of campus.

The new chilled water loop is the most visible element of the SMART initiative, a three-year campuswide energy savings project that began this fall. The underground loop will provide more efficient cooling to 29 campus buildings.

Construction of the new loop will include digging pits, boring from one pit to the next and pulling pipe underground. The first phase of the construction is expected to last from December to March. Excavation of the first pit will take place on the west side of the College of Business buildng. Upon the completion of the first pit, a second pit will be excavated on the north side of the Hurley Administration Building. This construction may cause temporary closures of some portions of sidewalk.

Workers also are working in buildings across campus to finish water conservation measures, such as installing new toilets and faucet aerators. These efforts are more than 50 percent complete.

Lighting upgrades, including the installation of occupancy sensors, is scheduled to begin at Discovery Park later this month.
