This month’s B2B will focus an existing campus administration building renovation. The existing HVAC systems are perimeter baseboard radiation and the central AHUs that provide 100% outdoor air into the back of individual fan coil units (FCU). The renovation will retain the baseboard radiation but will remove and replace the FCUs with active chilled beams connected to the outdoor AHU. Each AHU has MERV 11 filters, an energy recovery wheel, preheat coil, and chilled water coil for dehumidification (systems are not part of this B2B test). Chiller plant and primary pumps are existing while the secondary, variable speed pumping shall be new.
The project delivery method shall be construction management (CM) beginning in the conceptual phase of the building program.
