Bowdoin College is celebrating another step forward in its ongoing plan to become carbon neutral by 2020 with a recently completed, $100,000+ insulation retrofit project on 12 of the College’s mechanical rooms — the pipe-filled basement areas of campus buildings through which steam is pumped to provide heat.  “This project is a win-win for the college,” says Senior Vice President for Finance and Administration & Treasurer S.
