Starting next summer, several Boca campus dorms will have new and improved air conditioning.

The AC “plant” will service Glades Park Towers, Heritage Park Towers, and Indian River Towers, says Housing Facilities Coordinator Klinton Blair. In total, the project will cost $5.7 million.

“The chilling plant was designed to replace our current cooling system with a more modern, energy efficient central plant,” he said.

The construction blocks Glades Park Towers’ east entrance — closest to the Housing Lawn — but all other entrances remain accessible.

The University Press reached out to Blair for comment as to what makes the system more modern and energy efficient, but did not receive a response as of publication time.
