It was conclude that all air handling units that serve building B334 with the exception of AC-11 located in the basement mechanical room, needed to be replaced. ADC performed load calculation, designed ductwork modification for each department in order to meet current VA requirements, coordination with vendors to identify electrical capacity and selection options for air handling units.
