Thursday’s 6pm ET Zoom study session is titled, “Where to put the AHU” You’ll take the first five minutes of class to answer the question alone, but if you would like to get a head-start on that, here is the assignment.
A religious organization has hired an architect to design a free-standing preschool in a mixed climate. The owner’s overriding priority is to create a low-energy building. A portion of the roof is low-sloped, and another portion of the building sits under a steep roof with a ventilated attic. The site has a deep water table. Where should the air handling unit (AHU) be located? Select the best answer.
In the basement
In the ventilated attic
On the low-sloped roof
