UC Merced Sierra Terraces
This project encompassed the plan and spec for 2 dormitories. Taylor Engineers also facilitated the commissioning of LEED NC 2.1 under UCM Cx Authority. The UC Merced Sierra Terrace Dormitories house a central variable air volume modulating furnace system with unique variable volume/variable temperature zone controls to eliminate simultaneous heating and cooling. CO2 controls are provided in common rooms to dynamically control the ventilation rate. Additionally, individual toilet room fans work to reduce makeup air requirements.
Scope of Work
Complete design of HVAC and control systems. Division 15 master specifications for entire site. Master plan and specifications for energy management, control systems, and system commissioning. LEED mechanical and energy documentation.
