To help meet the Green Globes goal, TLC designed two high efficiency 275-ton air cooled chillers with low noise condenser fans to accommodate the needs of the campus. Chilled water air handling units with variable air volume terminal units and electric heat allow for individual temperature control of each classroom. TLC designed the gymnasium and cafeteria to serve as enhanced hurricane protection areas with its mechanical ventilation system connected to the school’s emergency power.
