The Arizona desert landscape provides a unique environment for learning about creating indoor environments right here on campus at the Johnson Controls Phoenix Institute.
Industry leaders and professionals have been taking advantage of the Building Environmental Systems Laboratory here at GateWay since its dedication on March 31, 1998. Participants have the chance to test their skills on real building equipment, without compromising the real indoor environment.
