DESCRIPTION

Goss was the mechanical and electrical engineer-of-record for this project that replaced an existing boiler, two (2) existing air handling units, the terminal reheat coils, and the pneumatic controls at all reheat coils with direct digital control. the new 1,000-MBH boiler is designed to supply 140F, lower than the original building design of 160F. By reducing the operating hot water temperature, the new boiler is able to capture additional heat through condensation in the flue, which provides increased operating efficiency.

In addition to the replacement of the existing air handling units, new reheat coils were added to interior zones that didn’t previously have reheat coils, and all reheat coil control valves were replaced. Additional hot water piping modifications were made throughout the building to serve the additional reheat coils. The new control valves and thermostats are all DDC, replacing the pneumatic control infrastructure with modern building automation system controls.

The new air handling units are single-duct VAV with blow-through arrangement, providing 24,000 cfm each to both wings of the building. Goss designed ductwork modifications to accommodate the installation of the new air handling units and the reheat coil additions and replacements.
