Intern Jack Buckley a Design Winner!

The 2018 ASHRAE Student Design Competition focused on a new 70,000 square foot (6,500 square meter), four-story, mixed-use complex north of Istanbul, Turkey.

The team selected a heat recovery chiller in conjunction with a geothermal loop field as the primary system for the building. The geothermal loop is a sustainable approach for cooling and heating that can easily be hidden from occupant view under a parking lot. The geothermal heat recovery chiller provides efficient, flexible means of producing heating or chilled due to three operating modes available through the virtual endcap.

MEI Intern Jack Buckley participated on the winning team in the HVAC Design Calculations category. We are proud of Jack and his fellow UNL teammates for their outstanding accomplishment!
