In collaboration with the design and engineering teams, we developed the best solutions to optimize this project. Our team worked closely with the design team to optimize this project, and our field personnel worked with the engineering team to investigate challenging field conditions prior to final design completion. This process provided the engineering team with valuable resources to ensure their planned routing was explored and coordinated during the design phase.
The final design consisted of Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) systems, Variable Air Volume (VAV) systems with hot water reheat, Underfloor Air Distribution (UFAD), Gas Fired Condensing Heating Hot Water Boilers, and Direct Expansion (DX) Cooling.
Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) systems
VRF systems are known for their energy efficiency, which makes them a good investment that quickly pays for itself. And because they can simultaneously provide heating and cooling, this system can be customized to the Maltz Center’s seasonal needs.
Variable Air Volume (VAV) systems with hot water reheat
VAV systems vary the airflow at a constant temperature, which makes them a consistent and reliable source for specific heating and cooling needs. And because the airflow changes based on need, it wears less on the compressor.
Under-floor Air Distribution (UFAD)
Not only is UFAD very energy efficient, but it can be a more suitable option for spaces where the layout is restricted or confined. Its improved ventilation efficiency means that it combines unparalleled flexibility with peak performance.
Direct Expansion (DX) Cooling
In addition to being more energy efficient, DX coolers are also more space efficient. And because this system can be expanded, they’re a good option for buildings that might change in size or purpose.
