The project consists of new construction of a 21,578 square foot 1-story pre-engineered metal building addition with metal siding and masonry veneer at the west of the existing building and the renovation of the existing 77,158 square foot school building.  The heating ventilating and air conditioning systems were replaced in the existing building with an energy efficient VRF system with dedicated outdoor air rooftop units, which distribute outdoor air to the spaces.  The same systems were designed for the new addition.  The existing energy inefficient lights in the school were replaced with new energy efficient lighting.

The expected result of this project is that the building will be more comfortable, energy efficient and pass the states requirements for outdoor air.

For two residence halls, Design-Aire Engineering conducted initial investigations that led to mechanical system upgrades.  In Harrison Hall, the mechanical system was replaced for the entire building, including interface with campus chillwater and energy management systems.  At Hawkins Hall, an indoor air quality survey and mechanical system serviceability evaluation led to HVAC system replacement design.
