SIP Construction

The Sustainable Infrastructure Program (SIP) construction continues to progress on schedule. Distribution work is continuing on the northwest corner of the Allen Memorial Art Museum (AMAM) and around Carnegie and Bosworth. Backfilling and restoration of both of these areas has begun. Remaining building conversion work is also continuing.

Collector pipe installation will continue at the well field through the summer. The collector pipes will transfer the thermal energy from the geothermal wells to the plant in the Central Services Building which will then provide heating and cooling to campus buildings. Work also continues inside the Central Services Building.

SIP is the biggest step that the Oberlin College has taken to reduce greenhouse gas emissions for campus. This project will bring the college within reach of its ambitious goal to become carbon neutral by 2025.
