Schemmer was selected to conduct a study and subsequently design a geothermal heat pump system for Missouri Valley Public Schools. The study goal was to evaluate the existing mechanical system and explore costs associated with renovating this system to either a geothermal system or a rooftop variable air volume (VAV) system at the Missouri Valley High School.
HVAC renovation included a total indoor air quality upgrade of the facility. These upgrades included additional building envelope insulation and a total exterior window and door replacement. All HVAC equipment was upgraded and air conditioning provided to the entire building. All of the existing ceilings were replaced with new suspended acoustical tile ceilings with new lighting, which included energy efficient ballasts and occupancy sensors used throughout the building.
