Calling All Architects: Have You Read Our White Paper?

feb 18

We are constantly working to keep professionals educated, and our most recent white paper offers some comprehensive information for commercial architects. Readers looking for ways to maximize usable square footage and occupant comfort will be particularly interested.

Our Commercial Architects White Paper dives into how Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) systems offer these benefits, and also showcases VRF’s many features. As its title suggests, all of the content is tailored for architects – addressing what you care about, what challenges you’re up against and what opportunities VRF offers you, specifically. The white paper also summarizes a variety of real-world architectural challenges that have been resolved with VRF systems. These projects are described in more depth in our case studies.

AIA 2015: A-List in A-Town

May 14_AIA 2015 ImageWant to see what the “materials and technologies of tomorrow” look like today? Join us at the AIA Convention 2015 in Atlanta and walk the 170,000-square-foot exhibition floor to witness the building industry’s innovation and forward-thinking firsthand.

AIA 2015 will kick off today with f ormer President Bill Clinton delivering the keynote speech. The AIA Convention is the industry’s largest architectural and design event and will run through Saturday, May 16. Two hundred seminars – including one on the design and construction of the 9/11 Memorial Museum – and over 50 tours of Atlanta’s most iconic sites will take place over the next three days to offer attendees an exclusive look at the past, present and future of architecture.

Come to booth #4259 to learn how HVAC fits into the design solution. We’re showcasing our state-of-the-art, energy-efficient solutions and controls technologies that are improving the way architects design buildings and how people achieve personal comfort control.

The AIA Convention is truly an architectural and design party you don’t want to miss. Stop by booth #4259 to see how we’re joining in the celebration.

White Paper: VRF Zoning Systems Get Historical

Historic building renovations present unique challenges for HVAC contractors. Many historic structures lack the space for ductwork, and their electrical systems probably weren’t designed to handle modern central cooling and heating requirements. Contractors are expected to modernize the building while preserving its architectural and aesthetic integrity, which is no easy feat.

We’ve published a new white paper detailing why VRF zoning systems are a particularly smart HVAC choice for meeting the unique challenges of a historic building renovation. This white paper can be a great resource for contractors, engineers and other building professionals who are hoping to learn more about VRF zoning technology for this potentially challenging application. The paper also outlines how VRF zoning systems can help historic buildings earn a substantial number of green building certification points, which is increasingly important in today’s industry.

Here are some highlights of why VRF zoning systems work well for historic building renovations:

  • Architectural Preservation: Systems can be installed with minimal impact on the building’s architecture and help projects comply with requirements of the U.S. National Park Service, which call for preserving distinctive materials and construction techniques. Indoor units can be mounted just about anywhere, so high ceilings and period finishes can be preserved, which is very important to the aesthetics of historic buildings. Check out the Turner Construction case study for more information.
  • Energy Efficiency: Some VRF zoning systems can heat and cool simultaneously, and units can be dedicated for small loads. Plus the 100 percent INVERTER-driven compressors and integrated energy recovery capabilities help with cutting down energy consumption. Check out the Miami University case study for more information.
  • Flexible Installation: Condensing units are compact and light enough to be installed on a roof or small mechanical room, without comprising the structure. And small refrigerant lines are easy to install and can be camouflaged on the outside of the building. Check out the Strawberry Mansion case study for more information.
