The technology at play in today’s K-12 schools is evolving rapidly—inside the classrooms, and in the various systems behind the scenes. Engineers handling such projects, whether the work is on new facilities or retrofits, have their work cut out for them.
The Mega-Stack option offers extended discharge from 10 to 15 feet in overall stack discharge height, making it ideal for low flow applications requiring higher plume rise.
This case study investigates the exterior and interior of a school, identifying risks and findings with over 10 hazardous material categories that will help engineers create a more ideal demolition.
This case study outlines how the monitoring system was set up and utilized throughout the process.
Construction was completed this winter on the new $168-million, 280,000 sf University of Michigan Athletics and South Campus Performance project (ASCP).
An historic university building had tough mechanical space requirements. Here’s how these challenges were met.
Why are AHUs important, design strategies for HVAC systems, setting new engineering habits, school boiler replacement case study, and AHU component makeup were Consulting-Specifying Engineer's five most clicked articles from last week, Jan. 18-24. Were you out last week? You can catch up here.
Specifying a chilled beam system to cool a masonry building more than 100 years old—with operable windows in a humid climate—is a risky proposition. This HVAC case study demonstrates how such an approach amid such conditions can be successful if handled properly from design, operation, and occupant education standpoints.
A Nebraska school district embraced outside-the-box HVAC design to connect existing facilities and new construction into an efficient engineering solution.
This presentation examines the needs of an institutional client, and the gap left by the traditional new building commissioning process.
