Centre’s Facilities Management Department has managed over two dozen facility renovation projects this summer and continues to incorporate “best practices” for energy efficiency whenever possible.

All of the light fixtures that were replaced this summer were replaced with light emitting diode (LED) fixtures. This includes the entire house at 839 Walnut, all of the Sutcliffe locker rooms/hallways, and the renovations on second floor of Old Centre. The Nevin Hall bathroom renovations incorporated both motion occupancy sensors and LED lighting.

We’ve did two small trial installations of LED lighting the past two years and the building occupants were pleased, so we took the opportunity this summer to include LED in our renovation projects,” said Wayne King, Director of Facilities Management.

The LED fixtures typically use about a half the electricity of comparable fluorescent fixtures and even less than that relative to incandescent lighting.
