Shive-Hattery is the winner of two ASHRAE
Technology Awards from the Iowa Chapter in the Commercial and Education categories. The Iowa Chapter of ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air-Condition Engineers, Inc.) recognized the following Shive-Hattery engineers and projects:
- Mechanical Engineer Chris Nelson, P.E., as winner in the Commercial Category for the Prairie Meadows Race Track and Casino Condensate Harvesting project. This project implemented a piping system and holding tank to collect condensate waste from the air handling units and recycle the water in tanks for processing. As a result, the Casino saved more than 2.3 million gallons of water for a savings of more than $14,000 over a 10 month period last year.
- Mechanical Engineer Doug Sullivan, P.E., LEED AP, QCxP, was the winner in the Educational Category for the Wright Elementary Mechanical Upgrades project. The project included a geothermal conductivity review and design, bid, construction and commissioning services related to the replacement of the Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning systems with a new closed loop geothermal heat pump system. An energy study showed that the energy-saving measures would save the district roughly $14,500 per year.
