Much of the university's effort to restore the campus to full use following the earthquake was funded by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). A state-of-the-art, $28 million central plant also was constructed using California state funding.
Throughout the restoration, and during the past two decades, the bas has continually proved its long-term value to the university. Today, the Windows NT(r)-based Apogee(r) monitors and controls hvac systems in 23 of CSUN's major buildings. The system, which comprises a host computer, two dedicated Protocol II networks, and numerous field panels, is fully supported by a customized technical support program.
