USD 345 - Seaman High School Addition & RemodelThis project included the remodel of Seaman High School’s auditorium, addition to the ninth grade classrooms, and the remodel of and an addition to the vocational training center.
The ninth grade classroom addition contains new 92% efficient boilers with individual room control to provide hot water to VAV reheat coils and cabinet unit heaters. Air conditioning of the offices, dining area, commons, and classrooms was achieved by providing six rooftop VAV cooling units. Air is distributed to VAV terminal units, each having a hot water coil. All new controls are integrated with the existing BAS controls. The vocational training shop contains welding exhaust, spray paint exhaust and sawdust collection systems that are staged and interlocked with a gas-fired heated make-up air unit. A new electrical distribution switchgear replaced obsolete undersized electrical services. An emergency generator was installed to provide power to the boilers, circulating pumps, controls, security and fire alarm system, life safety, and food service freezers and refrigerators.
USD 437 - Farley Elementary SchoolThis new 90,000 sq. ft. elementary school was made possible by a District bond issue. The goal of the District was to create a state-of-the-art elementary education facility with energy conservation and performance as priorities
The HVAC system uses low global-warming chilled water equipment that delivers cool air to the classrooms with displacement ventilation. This brings clean air into the room low and returns used air high, providing comfortable conditions and improved ventilation for the occupants. At the air handlers, ultra-violet anti-microbial lights eliminate contaminants while outdoor air ventilation is monitored constantly and modulated to maintain proper ventilation. Each classroom has indoor air quality control and monitoring. Heating is accomplished in a variety of ways including in-slab heat and overhead radiant heat using low temperature hot water produced by modular condensing boilers. All pumping and air handling is constantly adjusted with variable speed drives. All energy usage is monitored with the web-based Building Automation System (BAS). Domestic water usage is monitored and reduced with low consumption fixtures and infrared controls.
Energy usage is further reduced with lighting control systems including occupancy sensors, daylighting controls, and BAS-controlled circuits. Sources include LED and fluorescent lamps with high intensity discharge for exterior uses and some incandescent for theatrical applications. The theatrical dimming and sound systems are state-of-the-art and allow the users to take advantage of a realistic theatre setting. A generator provides emergency service for life safety systems, egress lighting, security and alarm systems.
Voice over IP is provided as well as an access control system. CCTV is a further security measure designed by LSA. Data systems, both wired and wireless, provide connectivity for students and faculty to in-house programs and internet discoveries.
