Bellevue Elementary School
Complete HVAC and Plumbing design for a new 60,000 square foot elementary school. The HVAC system consists of a high efficient ground source heat pump plant which produces chilled water and hydronic heating water simultaneously. The primary air for the building is delivered using Air Handling Units. At the room level Variable Air Volume terminal boxes are used to reduce fan energy in the building. Re-heat coils are used to control humidity in the building and to prevent over cooling of the spaces. Once the building has used all of the energy that it requires for HVAC the remainder of the energy is stored in the well field to be used at a later time. The Air Handling units incorporate energy recovery to reduce utility costs and an Ultra Violet air purification system to eliminate viruses in the air stream to reduce student sick days.
