Project Name: Kappa Delta Sorority – The University of Mississippi
Project Scope: This is a $1,800,000 Mechanical Project that consists of construction of a new 42,000 square-foot sorority house. The new four level antebellum facility is the largest sorority house on campus and houses 85 students.
Completion Time: 450 Days – Completed December 11, 2020
Safety Information: This job was competed with zero incident of injury
Project Summary: The mechanical system for this building consists of a VAV reheat type system. To maintain the antebellum style the HVAC and Plumbing systems posed some unique challenges. Not only did all mechanical equipment have to remain hidden from view, it had to provide Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) for the facility.
Cooling is supplied by an air-cooled chiller located on the roof, along with a series of DX rooftop units. Together all these units supply approximately 200 tons of cooling capacity. This provides for sensible cooling capacity and necessary conditioning of outside air in order to maintain todays IAQ standards.
Heating is supplied by two High Efficiency Slim Fit Condensing boilers. Heating water is dispersed throughout the building with a series of piping and pumps. VAV boxes in each room and commons areas, allows residents to maintain space temperature individually.
Along with a Reliable brand MachPro control system, this heating and cooling equipment allows them to operate their building at the desired comfort level, while saving energy and costs.
