Sageville Elementary School, Dubuque, Iowa
MEP was contracted directly by the Dubuque school district and subcontracted the architectural and structural design. MEP designed the HVAC and electrical systems for this $1.3M mechanical renovation.
Systems included water-cooled heat pumps with integral energy recovery, CO2 demand control ventilation, roof-top energy recovery unit, boiler conversion to hot water, new cooling tower, new piping and circulation pumps. The design was sized to be easily converted to a future closed-loop geothermal system.
