Indigenous Arts Campus - Fiber Arts Studio

The College has been working the past few months with our Architectural team (Jones & Jones) to come up with a building design that will represent both the Maori peoples of the South Pacific and the peoples of the NW Salish. Below is a preliminary snapshot of a proposed structure. The design will no doubt evolve. The thought is to represent an upside-down canoe since both peoples revolve around a canoe culture. The zigzag represented on the roof is an important element meant as the binding line of the two cultures. This is an exciting project that will be a new architectural gem for our Campus.

Also, take a look at a carving, by the Maori carving artist Lyonel Grant, that will go over the main entrance door.

$6,935,000 was provided for preservation projects across campus to help reduce the College's deferred maintenance backlog and improve the existing utility and roadway infrastructure, accessibility and the operation of the College's various utility systems. Some of the preservation work scheduled for this biennium is: new roof for the Shops building; repairs to the Seminar II green roofs and Longhouse roof; renovation and improvement to the water distribution system; renovation of the medium voltage feeder line; lighting improvement across campus including upgrading lighting controls; renovation and improvements to the HVAC/utility systems; restroom renovations; roadway improvements; and ADA access improvements.

Sustainability Projects

Resource and Conservation Management

  • The solar photovoltaic array (PV array) has been operational for four years.
  • Steam, chilled water and several important domestic cold water meters have been added throughout the Olympia campus. These meters will permit calculation of the Energy Utilization Index, the energy used per square foot per year for all major campus buildings for the first team. The recent meters report information to the Environmental Management System (EMS). Existing meters, including many of the electrical sub meters owned by the college, will be updated when funding is available to automate their reporting the EMS, as well. Contact Tom Lindahl, College Engineer, at x6136 for more information.
  • Mike Drennon, Mechanical Services Manager, has been steadily monitoring energy use on campus. As part of budget reductions, the college has committed itself to reducing utility costs. Rates for water and sewer have increased and offset some of the energy savings. Please be conscious of our conservation goals and help us meet them.
  • Here are the end of year utility numbers. The College continues to reduce its use of electricity. We used 741 less megawatt hours over the same period as last year and our bill was almost $19,000 less. Our gas use was basically the same as last year and our gas cost was up about $13,000. For the year we have spent about $6,000 less than last year at the same time. Please remember that this is in comparison to last year when we were very successful in reducing our energy costs and use. (For your information our total cost at the same time in June 2009 was $2,295,820.) Please continue to monitor your use of electricity and keep your office space at as low a temperature as possible and still feel comfortable. Our goal for temperature is 68 degrees in the winter and 76 degrees in the summer. The chart below is in comparison to what the College achieved last year, as of December 2011.
