Engineering challenges

  • Working with extremely dated existing mechanical cooling & heating systems
  • Low ceilings in the basement made it challenging to fit equipment and ductwork

Engineering outcomes

  • A dedicated cooling, heating and humidifying split system was designed for the wine cellar, divorced from the existing base building systems. This system conditions the environment where the wine resides within specific tolerances to ensure its preservation.
  • Through meticulous coordination and survey work, we identified feasible locations for all mechanical equipment, ductwork and piping
