This assignment has been provided in an attempt to introduce some ‘real world’ activities into your study of Building Services .It is hoped that by examining various aspects of a ‘semi-real’ building you will become more familiar with the role of the Building Services Engineer and the day to day problems he/she may encounter.

This assignment will focus on the following major aspects of a Services project:

• Heating Systems
• Ventilation Systems
• Environmental Control Systems

Examine the project building provided with this assignment. This is an Art Gallery. Drawings are on Blackboard.

Consider what type(s) of heating and ventilation systems might be appropriate for installation within the rooms.   

1 - Select suitable heating systems for the building and clearly explain why you feel these systems are most appropriate. (3 Pages).
2 - Select suitable ventilation systems for the building and clearly explain why you feel these systems are most appropriate. (2 Pages).
3 - Include manufacturer’s literature for major system components. (1 Page + Manufacturer`s Literature).
4 - Provide a description of the control methods for each of the systems below to achieve comfort conditions regardless of external and internal influences.
• Heating Systems
• Ventilation Systems

5 - Show how you expect heat and air and water to be distributed from the Plantroom to within rooms by using suitably annotated sketches/drawings that clearly illustrate Plant location, pipework and ductwork circuits and the location of heat emitters and ventilation terminals. (Minimum 2 Drawings + Sections).

Heat Source

Ground Source Heat Pumps
An art gallery requires nuanced control of temperature and humidity in its different spaces. The open exhibition hall for example will have different requirements to the closed gallery spaces or the customer café. For occupancy comfort, Building Regulation Standards require the minimum temperature in any art gallery space to be at least 70ºF. Protection of the paintings and sculptures must also be considered, as often materials used are subject to easy wear given the meticulous maintenance requirements. A ground source heat pump is the most sustainable option for this requirement. In particular, a combined geothermal heating and cooling system. This would draw heat out from an underground source and supplement the energy source with natural gas fired boilers. A local water source that is clean and thermally stable can be located for this....
