Facilities Projects Completed Over Spring Break

April 1, 2016

The College of Western Idaho (CWI) Facilities Planning and Management offices were busy over Spring Break with a number of projects being completed around campus.

  • Carpet was updated in the Guard House building that is used by the CWI Horticulture program. The new carpet, while looking great, came at a very reasonable price.
  • The Nampa Campus Academic Building received an upgrade to the lighting in the atrium. New LED fixtures were installed that are self-dimming and will modulate to maintain lighting levels in the atrium throughout the day. When natural light is available the fixtures will provide low output and automatically increase output as natural light diminishes. As part the Idaho Power Easy Upgrades energy rebate program it is estimated that the new fixtures will reduce energy consumption by 13,479 kWh per year which equates to a savings of $766 per year. CWI will also receive incentives in the way of rebates for this work. Annual maintenance cost will also be reduced by $800 to $1200.
  • Also at the Nampa Campus Academic building, two shipping containers were relocated from the dock area in preparation for a new hazardous materials storage shed. Construction on the new shed will commence mid-April. The two containers are now located adjacent to other containers east of the east parking lot.
  • A classroom improvement project was finished at the Canyon County Center that renovated room 220. New LED light fixtures were installed with associated controls to facilitate a higher level of instructor control within the space. 
  • At the Nampa Campus Multipurpose Building, a full lamp replacement is complete. A similar update will follow at subsequent buildings.

Thank you again to everyone who assisted and helped coordinate all this work.
