NYU Graduate Center Air Design
Facilities Management is working with facilities representatives from NYU to install supplemental air-conditioning units for the NYU graduate center located in the Social Sciences building. During various seasonal periods when the campus central chiller plant is not in operation, these classrooms will have back-up Air Conditioning.
Since this particular group of SMART classrooms have a westerly (direct sun exposure) exposure in the afternoon, the solar load is made greater by the fact of the large amount of glazing. The new air-conditioning units will alleviate this problem.
