Wild Florida Airboat Tours is a family-owned company that provides airboat tours through Lake Cypress, located in the Kissimmee River Basin. The company guides tourists and locals on airboats to view Florida’s wildlife in areas of the state that remain untouched by man. With the attraction growing in popularity, the company decided to expand the site by adding a 10,000-sq-ft, multi-use event facility to host educational sessions, social events, and weddings all under one roof.
The design of the new building presented a heating and cooling challenge for the owner. Because not all rooms within the facility would be used at any given time — some could be filled to maximum capacity, while others would remain empty at any point throughout the day — the facility’s HVAC system would be required to handle extremely diverse loads.
