Helicopter Support, Inc., TRUMBULL, CT
Design/Build Energy Efficient HVAC System
NEW ENGLAND MECHANICAL SERVICES VALUE DELIVERED
This project encompasses a total of 180,000 square feet: 60K of office space; 45K of high warehouse space with a unique sprinkler system; and 45K of machine shop/ manufacturing space that requires a special makeup HVAC system. 100% outside air is brought in.
DESIGN/BUILD HVAC SYSTEM SCOPE OF WORK
We designed this energy efficient HVAC system to generate energy savings by recovering the heat energy of exhausted air via a heat exchanger which can be reversed during colder weather—all the while maintaining positive air pressure to keep the space clean. We also provided other mechanical construction, such as installing variable drives so that the system can quickly adapt to changing condition. In addition, we were asked to design and install a radiant heating system on the loading docks, consisting of overhead gas-fired heaters, and we did it all on a very rapid time scale with resulting additional savings to this customer.
