    Building Feature!
    Douglas Library, the perfect place to study!

    It originally opened in 1924 and housed Queen's University's whole library collection.  It also contained the principal's office and the senior officials offices until Richardson Hall was built in 1954.  The building also had a huge renovation done in 1994 when Stauffer Library was built.  It was then re-opened in 1997.

  • Big Cheque

    On Thursday October 26, Queen's University received a cheque for $717,951.93. This cheque goes towards the efforts that Physical Plant Services/Sustainability and Honeywell have put in place and are continuing to put in place to reduce energy and water consumption, as well as greenhouse gas emissions. 
    Thank you Utilities Kingston for your contribution to the very important CAPit initiative. 
    We would also like to thank CKWS and the Queen's Gazette for covering this very important contribution and our GHG Chernoff Hall initiative.
     

     

  • Botterell Hall Crane

    Botterell Hall had a shiny new 900 ton crane lift a 1.75 megawatt emergency generator up to the roof on October 18th!

  • Chernoff Hall Energy

    PPS and Sustainability are making history with the single largest greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction project in the history of Queen’s University and it will soon drastically reduce the carbon footprint of Chernoff Hall.

    Throughout the month of August, new heat recovery glycol coils were installed atop the building that is home to the Department of Chemistry. 

    The $900,000 project, which is part of a larger comprehensive energy conservation program (ESCo) with Honeywell, will help reduce the university’s energy consumption and costs, and mitigate campus greenhouse gas emissions. The project is a massive undertaking, requiring heavy cranes to lift the equipment so it could be installed.
