Campus HVAC Tour

TODAY (9/23), 3:00pm, Hammerschlag Patio

  • You’re interested in building performance but aren’t sure what an AHU is, what’s inside one, and how its size affects building design
  • You think water conservation is important and have never seen the inside of a cooling tower
  • You’re curious what a chiller looks like and how a district chiller system feeds multiple building
  • You might not recognize an energy recovery ventilator if it sat next to you in class
Join the second campus HVAC tour TODAY at 3pm, on the patio in front of Hammerschlag between Wean and Porter Halls.

In just 90 minutes, you’ll learn by seeing HVAC equipment and campus (district) heating and cooling infrastructure.  The tours is led by
Marty Altschul, University Engineer and tour guide extraordinaire.

You'll also see and hear about the dynamics of campus flooding--and may be inspired to help design a solution.
