Facilities Management and Planning is pleased to announce that we are working with Honeywell on a long-term project to identify opportunities and implement initiatives designed to conserve energy, improve the indoor environment, and create sustainable solutions for our campus.  Robertson Hall has been selected as the first facility to be upgraded under the Energy and Sustainability Program.

Upon completion of the facility assessment, Honeywell and Carleton’s technical and administration team jointly identified a plan that aligns with our energy and sustainability goals. The scope of work selected is aimed at renewing Robertson Hall while permanently reducing utility consumption and operating costs, as well as reducing our environmental footprint.

Carleton University currently spends over $11 million annually in utility costs. The cost to operate Robertson Hall is $278,000 per year. Conservation efforts and improved efficiencies will help us reduce costs and ultimately manage utility risks. Once the program is complete, we can expect to see significant savings in utility and operational costs. The university will use the energy and operational savings generated to fund all or part of the project.

We are excited to be starting the first phase of the program. Greening our facilities and improving our energy efficiency are important to us. The program with Honeywell will support these initiatives over the long term and allow us to demonstrate our environmental stewardship to the community. You can also do your part by using energy wisely.
