Construction started recently on new geoexchange heating and cooling systems for the library and residence hall at Spring Valley. They were the first major projects on a year-long list of energy-efficiency, college-wide upgrades. The upgrades, totaling $3.7 million, were implemented to save money/generate funds, replace obsolete systems up for replacement, and meet required adaptations to revised building codes.
