December has been a productive month for the Facilities and grounds department.
With the unusual weather we have encountered it has allowed us to accomplish tasks that would otherwise have been dedicated to snow removal. Re-painting of the hallway and the foyer area of the Annex Building was accomplished. Quarterly service and preventative maintenance took place within our instrumentation air compressor room. Air Dryers were serviced and routine inspections of the area itself were conducted.
Recent replacement of a compressor motor was installed on one of our five ton heat pump units. Within the IT area we updated the electrical panel for additional circuits for their Liebert System.
Happy Holidays from the Facilities and Grounds Department

Progress continues as we make our way through September. With the approach of cooler weather, the department continues to prepare for the winter months ahead.
Air filtration service was conducted on our air handling equipment. Servicing of our rooftop solar PV and solar thermal systems were executed for winter operations.
Exterior lighting service for the campus was performed. In addition, the exterior light pole bases were water proofed and treated to guard against the upcoming winter elements.
