Park Place Middle School

Park Place Middle School

Integrus Architecture - Monroe, WA

Greenbusch provided comprehensive mechanical engineering, acoustical and A/V design services including fire protection, plumbing and HVAC systems, life-cycle cost analysis, value engineering, acoustical finish recommendations and construction methodology to mitigate noise and vibration, and support through construction.

Mechanical systems feature high-efficiency variable speed motors; Outside air is controlled by CO2 sensors so that the rooms donít run air when the rooms are not occupied; Right-sized chiller means less wasted cold air when the school is out of session during the summer/holidays and reduced the size of pumps; Roof-top units were prefabricated with coils easing installation and reduced cost.
