East Carolina University selected RMF to provide third party commissioning services for the new 210,000 SF Student Union and associated chiller plant on campus. The Student Union includes a Center for Student Activities, Leadership and Involvement; Ledonia Wright Cultural Center; multi-purpose 250-seat theater; event space; bookstore; dining and Sports Grill; and 700-space parking structure.
To support the New Student Union and expand their campus regional chilled water network, the project included the construction of a new chiller plant. The plant will initially house one chiller and associated equipment and will be an integral part of their campus distribution network.
RMF provided formal commissioning services from Advance Planning through post construction phases. Scope of work includes a commissioning plan, design review, performance testing, construction observations, service system review and approval, and O&M equipment review and training.
Additionally, RMF reviewed the LEED specifications developed by the designer to verify all requirements are included to successfully complete the commissioning process. Full LEED consulting services were provided by RMF for LEED prerequisite NC v2.2 commissioning services. The project achieved LEED Silver certification.
