Abstract

The goal of this project was to assess the current conditions of the heating, ventilation and air conditioning system in Goddard Hall and determine ways that it could be improved. Due to current conditions, Goddard Hall is overly negatively pressurized, resulting in uncomfortable classrooms and hallways as well as making the front door extremely difficult to open. After analysis of the mechanical drawings, as well as walkthroughs to observe current conditions and record temperature data and system deficiencies, the research team was able to determine multiple possible solutions of various scope and cost impact, to improve the overall building comfort.
