SanctuaryHayes Barton United Methodist Church

Raleigh, North Carolina

Year of Design: 2006

Project Description:  This project includes the renovation of the Sanctuary which will include upgrading the HVAC systems for acoustics, lighting, sound, life safety and electrical power upgrades. Plumbing will include a sink in the relocated Sacristy.  The project, at this point,  only goes through schematic design phase for plumbing and electrical and through the design development stage for mechanical. The mechanical scope will include evaluation of the changes that may be possible to improve the room acoustics and provide additional airflow from the system due to the increase in lighting loads to the renovated spaces.

 

 

St. Paul's Lutheran Church

Saint Paul’s Lutheran Church

Durham, North Carolina

Year of Design: 2005

Project Description: The project included renovation to the HVAC systems including packaged heating and cooling units and multiple split-system DX cooling systems. The heating and cooling systems are controlled via programmable electronic thermostats. Air distribution systems including ductwork, diffusers, grilles and registers serve the conditioned spaces. Ductwork and piping were concealed above suspended ceilings. Exhaust air systems serve the restroom spaces. Exhaust fans are controlled via room light switches or occupancy sensors for energy conservation. Outside air systems were provided to satisfy the North Carolina Mechanical Code/ASHRAE requirements for ventilation. Outside air systems are controlled by time clocks and/or CO2 sensors for energy conservation. The plumbing systems include plumbing fixtures for restroom spaces (water closets, urinals, lavatories and water coolers). Plumbing fixtures, mounting heights and arrangements meet ADA/North Carolina Accessibility Code requirements. Project includes waste, vent and water piping systems and connection to waste and water systems on the project site (within 5’-0” of proposed building additions). The electrical systems include electrical power distribution systems, general lighting systems, life safety systems, including fire alarm and emergency egress/exit lighting systems, provisions for telecommunication systems, including empty conduit/raceway for telephone and data systems (provided by the Owner or under a separate contract) and provisions for special systems, including empty conduit/raceway for audio/visual (A/V) systems (provided by the Owner or under a separate contract).
