The $20.4 million multi-phased addition and renovation project is completely served by a variable refrigerant flow heating and air-conditioning system. The VRF units are located in mechanical rooms and are water-cooled; therefore, no outdoor equipment.
As part of this project, a new central plant was constructed providing over 200 tons of cooling and high-efficiency gas heating. This plant contains evaporative cooling towers, primary and secondary pumping, water chemical treatment, a 200 KW diesel back-up generator and is the campus’ main distribution power center. Architechnics’ engineers designed the plant and then had the plant constructed off-site providing quick installation and start up.
Phase 1, 2 and 4 of the new facility and renovated areas include high-efficiency energy-recovery, dedicated outside air units providing fresh air ventilation.
