The Snow College Science Building features four lecture rooms, ten high-tech integrated classrooms/labs, six advanced labs and new collaboration spaces where faculty and students can work together. The building will serve as the anchor for Snow College’s STEM program and also include science themes and interactive displays.
The building heating, ventilation and air conditioning needs utilize a Variable-Air-Volume (VAV) reheat system consisting of heating hot water and chilled water systems. The heating water system will be produced using a steam-to-water heat exchanger and consist of distribution pumps, hydronic piping and water-to-glycol heat exchangers at each air handler. The heating source is the Campus Central Steam System. The chilled water system consists of an air-cooled chiller, primary distribution pumps and a distribution piping system. Cooling is also provided through evaporative cooling banks within the custom built AUHs. The labs require careful control of temperature, relative space pressures, air cleanliness, odor control, air motion and sound.
E Cube provided both fundamental and enhanced LEED commissioning services for this project. These services were performed throughout the project from the Design Phase through the Construction Phase and concluding with a warranty review. E Cube developed, with the assistance of the Owner/Design team, the Owners Project Requirements. We performed 3 design reviews at the SD, DD and 90% CD design phases. Commissioned systems included MEP, HVAC, Fire/Life Safety and Daylight/Lighting control.
