Final Report

The following is the Final Report as written for the AE faculty in the Spring of 2009. This design project focused on the redesign of the existing DX and electric resistance HVAC system into a centralized plant system with primary-secondary pumping and an absorption chiller-heater. Two breadth studies covered sustainable rainwater capturing and the structural impacts of the new system. The report is linked below as the full report and in sections in PDF format.
