Project Details

Rasmussen Mechanical Services partnered with Navitas to conduct an energy conservation study and Design-Build Services.

The project involved retrofitting the mechanical systems for elementary and high school. This included the installation of high-efficiency condensing boilers, pumps, VFDs, chilled water systems, fan coils, energy recovery units, and a Honeywell building automation control system.

The air delivery system was changed from multi-zone to variable-air-volume system.

  • Major construction was completed during the summer months.
  • Condensing boilers reduced fuel consumption and utility costs.
  • The Honeywell System controls all of the mechanical operations to reduce energy costs, as well as tracking/monitoring electrical and gas meter usage for monthly reporting.
  • Old multi-zone units were converted to VAV-VFD application for reduced construction and operating costs.
  • The new design allows for easy maintenance for facility staff.
