Smart Building Technology

Smart building technology and upgraded building management systems have improved the energy efficiency of our campus infrastructure.

This technology uses a variety of sensors to automate air flow, temperature and air pressure to keep buildings comfortable; and reduces emissions by improving the efficiency of mechanical systems such as boilers and chillers.
