Taco Systems Fit the Bill for Health Services Provider Building Expansion
A single-pipe system using Taco's LOFlo injection mixing
and iWorx control platform not only fit the space
constraints, but the building budget as well.
Tucson Commercial Firm Keeps it all In-House
When the apartments were built 30 years ago, energy efficiency wasn't exactly the main focus. After all, the price for gas and electricity was a fraction of today's rate.
Sierra Grande K-12 School
After one of the k-12 school's boilers broke beyond repair, and another caught fire, the building was able to limp along with heat from an old (and last remaining) LP-fired boiler until the district's one-week spring break. The original pneumatic controls didn't work, keeping some rooms frigid, while students in other classrooms sweated all day long. Maintenance personnel often found themselves going to the mechanical room to manually operate individual circulators.
New Apple Store at Grand Central is "in control"
At 23,000 square feet, the stone-clad shop has vaulting ceilings and widely varying occupancy. Lacking walls and doors, the store is entirely open to the rest of the terminal and 750,000 daily travelers, making it one of the best retail locations in the world. Great location, yes - but what about the enormous air exchange and inability to contain heat?
Architects Walk the Green Walk and Choose iWorx
Space Architecture+Design, St. louis, has recommended use of renewable-energy sources for interior comfort for years, so when they designed and crafted their own space, they decided to install a geothermal system and rooftop solar arrays as the source of space and domestic-water heating, as well as ample cooling.
Boarding School Expels Old District Mechanical System
When complete, seven of the largest buildings across the campus will have new mechanical components and entirely new systems. Either way, high tech iWorx controls will be the brains of each system. The changes will make a staggering difference, not only in the energy efficiency of the school, but also in the level of comfort for students and staff.
Coventry Elementary School:
But a complex problem lurked within. The original building management system had lost all control.
According to the school's maintenance supervisor, the system was cantankerous, unreliable, and had
lacked precision since day one. The company that installed it realized the problem was too deep for them;
they wanted nothing to do with the school shortly after leaving the jobsite in 1996.
Tampa Bay Egg Geothermal
"All it takes is a rumor for misinformation to catch fire," said the owner, chuckling. His fortune doesn't stem
from hosting a talk show. Rather, his background is in engineering, and so it was that professional interest
which spurred him to pursue the most comprehensive controls systems available for his vacation home.
The large undertaking included the change-out of a 15 million BTU, gas-fired steam boiler for roof-top units, all controlled by iWorx BLMC controllers and remotely monitored by the design/build contractor, Thermo-Mechanical Systems Corporation.
