The owner of a 350,000 sq. ft. commercial office building needed to upgrade six aging air handling systems, all located in interior mechanical rooms in the 350,000 sq. ft. building.
Like-for-like replacement air handlers or fans would be too large to fit inside the building without extensive demolition and lengthy interruption of business operations.
Six Knockdown Air Handlers utilizing modular FANWALL cubes were used, which allowed the large single fans to be replaced with a multi-fan array and the air handler to be disassembled and reassembled inside each equipment room.
The Ventrol Knockdown Air Handlers and FANWALL cubes — sized to fit through a 36-inch wide door — were carried into the building through conventional doors and installed on weekends with no disruption in service as required by the client. Benefits with the new system included lower acoustic levels, increased airflows, and improved airflow through coil and filters.
