University of the Sciences Griffith Hall HVAC and Wilson Hall Fire Alarm
Arora Engineers, Inc. (Arora) provided professional engineering services to the University of the Sciences on an on-call task-order basis. The projects have included assessments of existing conditions, troubleshooting and identification of problems as well as recommendations to correct problems and code deficiencies.
SCOPE OF WORK INCLUDED:
Griffith Hall Excessive Humidity Conditions Assessment and Corrections
In the first phase of the project, Arora provided professional engineering evaluation services associated with an assessment to determine the cause of excessive humidity conditions present primarily during the summer months in portions of the first and second floors of Griffith Hall. A complete report was prepared and submitted to the University for review. The second phase of the project featured mechanical design services to upgrade and modify the university’s HVAC equipment to better control humidity in accordance with Arora’s recommendations.
Wilson Hall Fire Alarm System Assessment
Arora’s Fire/Life Safety staff performed an assessment at Wilson Hall to determine the cause of unclear alarm notifications associated with the existing duct detection, and whether the system has met or exceeded its life cycle. The results of the evaluation were presented to the university for review.
