[Case Study] University Sports Arena Retrofit
Educational Facilities on a mission to retrofit older campus buildings with more energy efficient HVAC systems run into many structural and design limitations. The latest HVAC trend to combat these limitations is fabric ductwork.
When Texas engineers were faced with a 55 year old venue’s HVAC equipment space limitations and the design/installation challenges they chose fabric ductwork as the solution. The new 60 inch diameter fabric duct was 90% lighter than current metal ductwork providing the solution to both the project’s roof load-bearing limitations along with the many added advantages fabric ductwork provides over metal alternatives.
