Marywood University: School of Architecture
Project: Tight humidity control without any active regeneration of desiccant material in a remodeled gymnasium with limited room for ductwork.
Product: Pinnacle, Chilled Beams
Payoff: The design, by engineering firm of Greenman-Pedersen, Inc., called for 42 chilled beams to provide 100% of the cooling for both design studio floors of the renovated building. The design of the entire system was built around the specific inclusion of the SEMCO Pinnacle unit, which offers a wide operating range and can be highly customized for the application. The Pinnacle unit utilizes advanced heat wheel technology to dehumidify and precondition supply ventilation air. The University’s School of Architecture earned LEED Gold certification for the newly-renovated building.
