Assistant Vice President for Facilities Management and Campus Operations
Bill Poole has been the Assistant Vice President for Facilities Management and Campus Operations at UT Arlington since 2007. He has held his registered professional engineer license since 1980, beginning with the State of Colorado. He maintains an active license in Colorado and Texas. Over the past 45 years he has worked in power plant engineering, energy management, mechanical “hands on” design for more than 70 projects, construction management, department lead for the mechanical section of a large national engineering firm, and facilities management. His sustainable practices go back to the 70’s when he was on the team that optimized the operation of all power plant units throughout a large power company across two states, resulting in significant improvement of the “system load curve” which in turn resulted in dramatic reductions in fuel consumption for electrical power generation. He is a graduate of North Carolina State University. He achieved his LEED© Accredited Profession designation (inactive), in 2006, and his Certified Energy Manager© (inactive) in 2007. He was a contributor and reviewer for the UT System capital projects Sustainability Guideline.
At UT Arlington, he has been involved in capital projects totaling over $430 million in value, as well as oversees an annual budget of approximately $28 million, including in-house managed construction projects for Office of Facilities Management. During his time at UTA, more than 800,000 square feet of building new construction, and 1,200,000 square feet of parking structures have been completed. Two projects have achieve LEED gold status, and one silver status. Annual energy costs for the campus have been reduced more than $5,000,000 through procurement practices employed, as well as through Energy Conservation Measures (ECM’s) executed by independent contractors at a capital cost of approximately $28,000,000. These initiatives are “self-funded” through the resulting energy savings as well as avoidance of maintenance costs due to replacement of older less efficient equipment and lighting.
