Sorenson Arts and Education
The University of Utah has a new home for the College of Education and the Tanner Dance Program, the Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts and Education Complex. The 115,000 square foot building is a multidisciplinary collaboration of education, arts, and science, and opened its doors in February.
The HVAC systems include chilled beams with a dedicated outdoor air system for the north offices and VAV reheat serving the south dance studios. The campus central chilled and high temperature water systems are the source of heating and cooling. Chilled beams provide energy savings by meeting space cooling needs with water rather than air, which minimizes the amount of air that needs to be circulated throughout the building. It also makes it easy to provide individual room temperature control.
