Kalamazoo's East Hall will be an old building with some very new systems.

by

KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- It may be the oldest building on the WMU campus, but when it reopens as the new Alumni Center, East Hall will have a very modern geothermal heating and cooling system that uses steady temperatures drawn from deep underground to conserve energy.

University Spokesperson Cheryl Roland says they are drilling over 5 dozen holes in Prospect Hill to install the system.

It will be the second structure on campus to use Geo-thermal heating and cooling.

She says final demolition is underway and preparations for restoring the building and remodeling it are occurring simultaneously.
