Perfect Timing


CHANGING THE CLOCK AT DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME? Re-setting the time after a power outage? Forget about it.

Clocks in the new Continuing Studies Building rely on global positioning system satellites and FM radio waves. Accurate and never out of sync, the wireless system uses a transmitter that takes GPS time settings and broadcasts them to the building’s network. Batteries for the clock system last for more than five years.

Other buildings currently under construction—Medical Sciences, Engineering/Computer Science—will also feature the no fuss timepieces.
