This month’s Facility File will focus on the B2B April test for a K-8 school temporary heating project in sync with a utility rebate to furnish and install a new 120 boiler horsepower (BHP) condensing boiler application.
Last month, I discussed the benefits of HVAC infrastructure design-build (DB) opportunities for HVAC consulting firms and HVAC contractors. The two main reasons for pursuing DB HVAC infrastructure projects were twofold:
Nortek Global HVAC has added the R7DA, a combination dedicated outdoor air system (DOAS) and conventional space conditioning rooftop unit (RTU), to the Reznor® and Mammoth® branded R7 Platform product lines.
BOSTON — Key energy issues, such as energy management, efficiency, automation, and more, took center stage as the Association of Energy Engineers (AEE) presented its AEE East Energy Conference & Expo, March 20-21 in Boston.
ROSEMONT, Ill. — BNP Media is pleased to announce that more than 80 percent of the conference sessions at the inaugural AEC BuildTech Conference & Expo (Architecture, Engineering, Construction) will offer continuing education units (CEUs), to provide industry professionals with the credits needed to keep their licenses/certifications.
This month’s Facility File focuses on the March Back2Basics retrofit of a campus-wide hot water boiler system covering 40 buildings with primary-, secondary-, and tertiary-pumping based on a performance lease agreement to retro-commission the system with a guaranteed operating savings. The university will hire an owner representative to work with a design-build-operate-maintain performance contractor (PC).
On Demand Ductwork and piping are only two components fighting for space in modern building design. That space is tight, avoidable changes can be expensive, and conflicts identified later can be even more costly in time and money. Get a preview of cutting-edge 3D projection functionality for uses in factory layout, topo line projection for cut / fill or template layout for offsite pre-fabrication of assemblies.
The AEC BuildTech Conference & Expo is a unique new event spotlighting the latest design & building processes, products and emerging technologies. This interactive three-day conference & expo is designed to inform and inspire today’s entire building team — innovative and influential architects, engineers, contractors, facility managers, owners and more. Educational sessions will include five separate tracks focused on plumbing, HVAC/mechanical systems, flooring, building envelope and roofing. As an attendee you will walk away from this event with the connections and knowledge to leverage tomorrow’s building processes and construction technologies.
Engineered Systems magazine’s April 2019 issue focuses on K-12 schools, showcasing how districts across the nation are using hybrid systems and advanced BAS systems to cut their energy use and costs, how kitchen ventilation systems should be installed and maintained, and more. The issue also examines the present and future of artificial intelligence in the built environment, one engineering firm’s advanced attempt to create a nonproprietary BMS system, and much more.
