Campus Energy Conservation Project & What's Next

Board Approves Second Phase of College of Podiatric Medicine’s Energy Conservation Project

As of March 8, 2022 The Board authorized the university to proceed with the design and construction of phase 2 of an energy conservation project at Kent State’s College of Podiatric Medicine in Independence, Ohio. The project will include the rebuild of the four original 44-year-old air handlers and installation of a new rooftop chilled water system. This improvement will refresh the four air handlers that serve the majority of the nearly 133,000-square-foot facility and include some cooling redundancy, save energy, retire a large amount of deferred maintenance backlog and drastically improve resilience of the building heating system while supporting the academic mission.

The College of Podiatric Medicine has allocated up to $2 million in renewal and replacement funds to support the completion of the project that will be completed by Brewer-Garrett Co. The project will have a 15-year payback period in terms of energy savings.
