Summary

MEP provided HVAC, Electrical, Plumbing, and Fire Protection engineering design services through the construction period of the new 40,000 SF space. A high-level Geothermal Feasibility Study was conducted to compare the performance of the identified baseline HVAC system and the proposed geothermal system.

After the analysis was completed the city decided to go with a Geothermal Hybrid System that included a fan coiler air-side system with ERV, heat pump chiller (cooling more efficiency of 0.761 kW/ton, heating mode COP of 4.6), and a hybrid gas fired hot water boiler (efficiency of 85%). The hybrid system will reduce the annual operational cost by $3,416.
