VRF’s Role in Oklahoma City’s River Revitalization

july5_2017_2

The Oklahoma City (OKC) Boathouse District is central to the recent revitalization of the Oklahoma River. Its six buildings offer athletic training facilities, event spaces, activities for children and adults, and more. With such a wide range of cooling and heating needs across its six buildings, it’s no surprise the five newest Boathouse District buildings selected our Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) systems.

The first of the five buildings to receive VRF was Devon Boathouse, what OKC Boathouse Foundation Senior Director John Riggs called a “stunning, high-performance facility, and a designated U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Training Site. There’s a little bit of everything across its 33,000 square feet…” A facility with multiple spaces, and each space dedicated to occupant experience, it required an HVAC system that offered not only zoning abilities but advanced controls. “This is about access – the ability to remote in and change things on the fly. A high level of access and control means you can manage energy costs and customers’ comfort. VRF offers that kind of access,” said Riggs. Our systems also offered a flexible design and discreet operation.

After such a positive experience, the Boathouse District continued using VRF technology on other projects. The next was the Chesapeake Finish Line Tower, which required a flexible installation due to the structure’s castellated beams. After that was the CHK|Central Boathouse, whose performances spaces have a variety of heating loads, and VRF offered the ability to ramp up when the spaces were occupied and ramp down between performances.

Following those two projects, the SandRidge Youth Pavilion needed an HVAC system that could match its high-level, contemporary look, and our VRF was a fit. The most recent project, RIVERSPORT Rapids, is a high-performance building that combines the HVAC needs of all that came before it – zoning, flexibility and aesthetics.

We’re so honored and excited to see our systems applied to such an important, wide-ranging project. The Boathouse District has become a hugely popular area destination. It’s no wonder: its beautiful buildings offer spaces to train Olympians, take in a show, do recreational or sporting activities, or just sit back and enjoy a nice, comfortable afternoon. Learn more.

Project Profile: 101 Bedford

101 bedfordLuxury apartments are popping up everywhere these days, each bigger and better than the next. A swimming pool, audio recording studio, rooftop event spaces, spas and wine vaults all sound nice from a renter’s point-of-view. From an HVAC perspective, however, these amenities can pose the ultimate challenge.

The 101 Bedford apartment complex in Brooklyn, New York is a 340,000-square-foot facility with 351 luxury apartments. The building needed an HVAC system that could accommodate the loads demanded by its top-of-the-line amenities. The system also had to be discreet, user friendly and have energy allocation capabilities to match its luxurious design.

David Glickman, president, Glickman Engineering Associates PLLC, determined Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) technology was the only possible choice that would satisfy all of 101 Bedford’s requirements – precise control, quiet operation, low energy consumption, heat recovery and ease of installation. He promptly selected our VRF system due to its sophisticated control network. The owner had experienced the difficulties of tenant billing from a previous project, a 98-unit apartment building. Our network calculates the energy used by each apartment, keeping track of all BTU’s for cooling and heating and thus making issues with billing tenants obsolete.

101 Bedford is now more than just a high-end place to live. It is an icon of indoor environmental control, comfort and convenience.

Ductless HVAC Systems: Tried and True



When sports broadcaster Smokin’ Al Koken isn’t reporting from the sidelines of a Washington, D.C., sporting event, he’s watching it from the comforts of his home just like everyone else. But after 20 years of trying to watch his favorite teams while listening to radiator pipes clanging in the winter and dealing with inadequate cooling from just one A/C window unit in the summer, the radio and TV personality realized that his home really just wasn’t that comfortable.

Koken found the solution to his cooling and heating problem when he hired Grove Heating and Cooling to install our ductless systems in his longtime home. Now, with the zoning capabilities of his six indoor ductless units, Koken can cool and heat each room in his house to exactly how he wants it.

Watch this testimonial video to hear more from Koken on how our HVAC system has made his at-home game time experience that much more enjoyable.
