TTU contracts their custodial services through Service Solutions (SSC). They are committed to the use of environmentally responsible chemicals, equipment and processes. Attached are SSC's "Green Cleaning Methods" & their sustainability policy (below). They also provide us with the required MSDS on all the products that they use (not attached).
A central energy management system controls our central steam plant, central chilled water plant and some portion of HVAC, chilled water or steam systems in approximately 85% of the central campus square footage. This control includes (to a varying degree in different buildings, depending on age): room temperature high/low setpoints, return air temperatures, outside air temperature, humidity, differential pressure, supply & return water temperatures, steam line pressure, etc. Reporting is done monthly & annually. Comparisons are made of same time in years past. The University uses this information for budgeting, to set future energy saving goals and to evaluate energy saving progress, both on a project level and campus wide. Dashboards are available for students, faculty, staff to access to observe and track utility usage.
TTU is a State university, under the oversight of the Tennessee Board of Regents. Because of this, all square footage falls under federal OSHA standards and ASHRAE standards 62.1 & 62.2. Since 2012, all renovated space and new construction is designed and constructed according to the conditions of the Tennessee High Performance Building Requirements.
