Founded by the English Benedictine community in 1926, the Portsmouth Abbey School is a coeducational, high school academy that sits on a 500-acre campus on the shores of Narragansett Bay in Rhode Island
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).
Modular boilers have come a long way in the past few years, along with load-matching strategies. Improving efficiencies, navigating critical tight spaces, and allowing for future growth are three reasons this option is heating up.
The forward march of progress in terms of basic equipment and controls sophistication has made the combination of condensing and non-condensing boilers more attractive than ever. Still, you can’t just grab one of each and expect miracles.
Retrieving every last bit of performance from the system while stopping short of the surge line is no small feat. Dig into sizing, tower selection, chilled water loads and stability, and condenser water management to leave no efficiency stone unturned. Read more in April issue
