Because energy costs account for
such a significant portion of the Buildings’ operating
expenses, we solicit the cooperation and assistance

(induction units) to prevent obstruction of airflow.
If possible, have persons working after hours work
in proximity to one another to lesson lighting
and ventilation requirements.
