Future Renewal and Replacement Projects
Planned for the summer of 2015, a mechanical and architectural renovation to Husman Hall will include the addition of a new energy recovery ventilator which will solve negative air pressure problems, and utilize the temperature of the building exhaust air to temper outside air before entering the building, resulting in energy savings. Fire alarm systems will be upgraded to meet current codes, including smoke detectors in every living space and mass notification capabilities. Existing public area lighting will be replaced with high efficiency light fixtures and occupancy sensors. The air and light work above ceilings will mandate the replacement of all corridor ceilings. The architectural improvements will include new flooring and painting throughout the public areas of the building and a complete makeover of the lounges. The following items will be replaced in every dorm room: Heating/air conditioning units, painting, LED lighting, door and key card entry hardware.
