Ice thermal storage 4-pipe, central plant based hot and low temperature chilled water distribution system
Oxford Area High School is a new 330,000sf High School Building.
Consolidated Engineers provided the design for the HVAC, plumbing, fire protection and electrical systems for the project. One of the unique design features includes ice thermal storage. The HVAC system is based on a 4-pipe, central plant based hot and low temperature (36 deg F) chilled water distribution system. Hot and low temperature chilled water is circulated through individual closed loop piping systems to hot and chilled water coils in VAV air handling units and miscellaneous heating/cooling and heating/ventilating only terminal units.
