The JCTC AMIT project is a 55,000 SF advanced manufacturing training facility located in the heart of downtown Louisville.
The HVAC system for the project is a chilled water VAV Air Handling Unit system with hot water reheat and variable speed pumping. Stratification was re-mediated in 2 story spaces with HVLV fans. A solar domestic hot water heating system was designed to reduce electrical consumption when free heat is available. Process equipment included a centralized dust collector and infrastructure for Compressed Air, Argon, and Mixed Gases. A robust data backbone, energy-efficient lighting and controls, strategically located busbars, and electrical cable drops were also provided.
The new building is scheduled to teach Machines, Robotics, Motor Controls, Pneumatics, Hydraulics, Industrial Electronics, and PLC controls. All systems and spaces were designed with the intention to provide for flexibility in the event the instructional requirements change.
