Mechanical and Electrical Design services for a new two story school building for Pre-K through fifth grades. The total gross area of the building is approximately 88,500 S.F. and accommodates 675 students. The building includes classrooms, special education rooms, media center, cafeteria, gymnasium/multipurpose room, art and music rooms, administrative suite, and mechanical/electrical spaces. The Building is fully air conditioned. The HVAC system consists of a (4) pipe distribution system with ceiling mounted fan-coil units for heating and cooling in each classrooms.
Ventilation is through energy recovery units equipped with enthalpy wheels, heating and cooling coils for improved dehumidification capability. Ventilation air is delivered to each space. Classrooms are set-up for demand control ventilation. Occupancy sensors open and close supply and exhaust air dampers based on the occupancy of the space. Variable frequency drives associated with the energy recovery units vary the amount of ventilation air circulated in the building to further conserve energy. The installed chiller is evaporative cooled type for better efficiency and increased energy savings. Kindergarten classrooms have radiant floors for better comfort.
