Milwaukee School of Engineering | Building Environmental (JCI) Lab

Renovated an outdated laboratory built in the 1980s with constant volume systems and pneumatic controls to state of the art DDC controls except for the boiler to be used for instructional purposes.

Design included two (2) new air handling units with VAV boxes of various configurations including series fan powered, parallel fan powered, single duct, hot water reheat, and electric reheat; 1400 MBH watertube boiler with primary-secondary pumping; 200-ton water cooled chiller and cooling tower with variable primary flow; a steam to hot water heat exchanger; and plate and frame heat exchanger.  The design is a self-contained laboratory used to create its own loads with the use of steam, hot water, and/or chilled water to demonstrate HVAC principles to MSOE students and Johnson Controls technicians across the county.
