This law school design story moves on from rationales for early decisions to the specific next-phase design challenges. Team effort combines with DOAS, radiant ceiling panels, DCV, and setpoint fine-tuning to maintain this case’s appeal.
Perhaps the U.S.’s largest to-date Dedicated Outdoor Air System (DOAS) coupled with radiant ceiling panel (RCP) cooling and heating mechanical system is currently under construction at the Washington College of Law at American University (Washington).
An energy services company has a habit of basing its operations in buildings ready for a second chance. This time around, a zoned VRF design led to substantial electric and gas savings on top of the rewards of building conservation.
Franklin Energy Services, LLC (Franklin Energy)in Port Washington, WI, has been consulting with utilities, municipalities, and states to create energy-efficiency programs for commercial, industrial, agricultural and residential customers since 1994
If you are one of the fortunate ones to have had the opportunity to work in the building industry throughout your career, you probably don’t think you can or will leave a legacy for others to benefit from being in this business.
Your cloud and the cloud services you create for your clients on your journey to the Internet of Things (IOT) are a virtual extension of everything you have ever done in the past, with the added power of a mobile cloud services future.
I was reading your article about the potential disconnect between system complexity and the resources/capabilities of the owner’s O&M organization (“Just Because You Can Doesn’t Mean You Should,” May 2014).
These days, designs are favoring higher total system capacities, larger generators at higher output voltages integrated into “campus-type” power distribution systems, and security. Review design approaches, lessons learned, and relevant codes.
The high-profile equipment involves an efficient, resilient trigeneration plant to provide heating, cooling, and power service. However, UConn’s most critical asset may be its forward-thinking, campus-wide energy strategy. Read more stories in June Issue 2017.
