Design & Building Complications
The auto and body shop industry is very competitive when it comes to hiring. The owner realized this and wanted to make sure he was attracting the best technicians with top notch amenities. This meant air conditioning in his shop was a must.
Due to the outdoor location of the system and high-efficiency fans, sound levels inside the space are low enough that employees can work right next to the units without being affected. The sound is nearly indistinguishable between the equipment being “on” or “off.”
Equipment, grills and louvers were painted a special custom color to match the facade inside the building as to not detract from the cleanliness and aesthetics of the interior.
A remote building pressure sensor and special split min/max damper arrangement allows the customer to maintain precise positive pressure in the building year-round. This reduces infiltration and provides necessary ventilation to the space to keep up with varying exhaust loads.
