Dabney Hall, originally constructed in 1969, is a 135,000 square foot, 9 story building, housing primarily the department of chemistry. Issues of odors, re-entrainment, insufficient supply air, insufficient exhaust, and balancing exist in the building.  A recent study conducted of the HVAC, emergency power, and life safety systems identified system deficiencies that require correction for improved HVAC system performance.

A new HVAC DDC control system will be installed providing for integration of HVAC equipment under one control system. In addition to the project focusing on HVAC upgrades throughout the building scope will include renovation of approximately 4,000 SF of existing laboratory and office space on the ground floor.
