Brian Palmer, Lead HVAC Control Tech

Brian has been working at Western Oregon University for 5 years. He manages the HVAC control system on campus, which helps maintain building temperatures and humidity. One of Brian's favorite things about working on campus is being able to help make people comfortable in their classrooms and work spaces through heating and cooling. He also enjoys all of the people he gets to meet and interact with on a daily basis here at WOU. Recently, Brian has been involved in the planning stages of the projects that will be taking place in the Administration, ITC, and OMA buildings. Long term, he hopes to see more sustainability initiatives come to fruition at WOU. In his spare time, Brian loves to go on hikes. His favorite trails can be found in the Beazell Forest of Kings Valley.
