In 2007, the Quincy Public School District commissioned Architechnics to design the replacement of the entire heating system in the 305,000 square foot Junior High School. The engineers at Architechnics designed a water source heat pump system with classroom unit ventilators and reusing the fresh air ventilation intake system. This new system now provides comfort year-round with high-efficiency heating and air-conditioning.
For the 2000 Seat auditorium, packaged rooftop units provide the HVAC utilizing ductwork above the ornate ceiling. An automated building management system provides complete control with graphics imprecise temperature control throughout the year. In this historic preservation landmark building, providing a new system without disrupting the historical features was a challenge. The new equipment and piping blend flawlessly with the building features almost appearing as if it was the original system when the building was built in 1933.
