Water Bottling Facility
final report



The analyses performed in this report are a result of information collected over the past two semesters. Gathering background information about the Water Bottling Facility gave way to the potential for modifications of the mechanical, acoustical, and electrical systems of the building. These analyses were run to give the author of this report a greater understanding of building systems in an environment that adapted to the student’s interests.

The mechanical depth portion of the report focuses on the main subject of incorporating a ground-coupled heat pump into the HVAC system with smaller analyses of duct changes and exhaust additions.

Breadth topics included an acoustical analysis as well as a photovoltaic analysis.  Both looked at the potential incorporation of systems into the existing building to see if the proposed designs were feasible.

“Note: While great efforts have been taken to provide accurate and complete information on the pages of CPEP, please be aware that the information contained herewith is considered a work‐inprogress for this thesis project. Modifications and changes related to the original building designs and construction methodologies for this senior thesis project are solely the interpretation of Justyne Neborak. Changes and discrepancies in no way imply that the original design contained errors or was flawed. Differing assumptions, code references, requirements, and methodologies have been incorporated into this thesis project; therefore, investigation results may vary from the original design.”
