The old saying goes, “Killing two birds with one stone.” But what if you could kill six with one stone? That’s what Abdul Momen, associate director of maintenance and operation for the facilities department at Georgia State University, aimed to accomplish at the school’s 216,000-sq-ft Natural Science Building.
Through a flexible design incorporating radiant heating and cooling, demand ventilation, energy recovery, and VAV, Manhattan’s Cooper Union leads its class in sustainable performance in
classrooms, labs, and beyond.
For a consumer food group’s very mixed-space campus, HGA’s careful outdoor air strategy got support from smart boiler, chiller, and lighting design to create performance tailored for the client while comfortably exceeding LEED®and ASHRAE 90.1 requirements.
Terminal devices, pressurization, supply air, proper exhaust … those factors and more go into a well designed VAV system for sensitive lab applications. From general tips to changing details such as fabric duct elements, booster fans, and a new AMCA standard, the author equips you to succeed in one space that is no place for experimentation.
A fog humidification system installed at this Michigan lab is controlled by a BAS.Pall Life Sciences is a leading global provider of filtration, purification, and separation technologies to the diverse
New filters and a monitoring system helped the Carolina Conceptions Fertility Clinic increase its success rate. Since Carolina Conceptions Fertility Clinic opened its doors in August 2006, it has become
Leaning on experience and data from various K-12 cities and projects, the author pursues some less conventional design approaches. They may revolve around radiant heating and/or cooling, but depending on school size and other factors, the smart use of heat recovery, DOAS, and improved central plants could also put a project on the HVAC honor roll.
