Collaborative Approach Enables Seamless Integration of High-Performing HVAC Systems into Historic K-12 Schools

Fact #1: Aging K-12 buildings are often not designed to accommodate newer, more modern HVAC systems.

Fact #2: HVAC system replacements are inherently invasive.

Fact #3: Construction seasons are limited due to a lack of swing space.

These facts became ever-present when the Niagara Falls City School District asked CPL to help add new air conditioning to four of their historic elementary schools. Learn how we worked collaboratively with the district’s facilities maintenance team to successfully design and integrate chilled beam systems for their aging buildings.
