Pilot Revolving Door Installation (architectural study)

Project Progress: 

Project Category: Research/Study

Proposed by the Physical Plant Department, this project will lay the groundwork for a potential installation of energy-saving revolving doors at either the Davis Center or Bailey-Howe Library. Because revolving doors are a highly visible, culturally significant, and architecturally distinct approach to efficiency, this project would be well-aligned with the mission of the Clean Energy Fund. The end project would eventually involve students in measuring the actual energy, cost savings, and carbon reductions achieved once the revolving doors have been installed and in use. If successful, revolving doors could be incorporated into building entryway standards across campus.

Clean Energy Fund Award: $4,000
Final Project Cost: $0
