  1. Nice article. Great team doing the hard work to keep our systems performing and helping to reduce the University’s greenhouse gas emissions.

  2. Thank you to the men and women who all work “behind the scenes” to keep these institutions running and safe. It takes a lot of knowledge, skill, and experience to deal with boilers from the ’20s to the most advanced systems in the Data Sciences building. You are an invaluable asset to Boston University and to keep it running. Thanks!

  3. Thank you for recognizing the smart and engaged professionals who work behind the scenes every day keeping our workplaces and dorms comfortable, clean and safe. This should be a regular series to heighten awareness of all the teams it takes to keep BU running.

      1. +1 +1 +1!!!! Staff are the lifeblood to any university, it would be amazing to see more spotlights on the work they do to literally keep campus open and functional!

  4. “Our biggest challenge is trying to get the best we can out of the equipment that we have, because we have so many buildings and the age of some of the equipment is challenging,” he says.

    retrofit, retrofit, & retrofit!

    yes, ongoing challenges……but you have to keep up by changing out & upgrading the old stuff!
