Does the institution use timers to regulate temperatures based on occupancy hours in at least one building?:

A brief description of the technology used:

Our campus has a BAS system in place to turn off air handlers during the night in most campus buildings according to class schedule. In our new Science and Engineering building, we have occupancy sensors that disable air and lighting in unused rooms during the day.

We do turn off air handlers at night in areas that are empty or mostly empty, office areas in SENG, COB, Dwire, U-hall, Main Hall, Cragmor Hall,Engineering, Centennial Hall and the library.In SENG we also use occupancy sensors in the rooms to turn off the air and lights to those areas, or turn down to a minimum when no one is in the area.
