Architect: In partnership with Lousqui Engineering
Size: 330,000 square feet
A 330,000 square foot campus consisting of 7 buildings.
Striking a balance between a centralized HVAC plant and smaller systems catering to uses of each building, the mechanical system features a 1,600 ton chilled-water energy center with building-specific night cooling and winter circulation of warm air from the top of atrium down to floor level. To further conserve energy, the air handlers feature economizers.
By streamlining the mechanical design with other building systems, other resource-saving featured have been added. For instance, condensate water, produced by conditioning hot and humid air of Ashdod, is used to irrigate the landscaping.
