211 Ervay

  • Project Location: Dallas, TX
  • Owner/Client: Alterra
  • Project Description:

The goal of the renovation of this historic, 18 floor building was to provide a cost effective, retro-fit HVAC system. The small roof footprint, existing pipe chases, and low startup and operating costs made VRV the perfect choice. A 500 ton Daikin VRV heat recovery system was installed, with horizontal ducted FCUs and Daikin enthalpic plate ERVs for ventilation air requirements. DXS worked with the owner to install the units floor by floor as they gained tenants, further saving them money, and avoiding the extra time and expense of replacing the building’s existing chiller.

Retail & Office Key Considerations

Architects and engineers working in the retail and professional office building markets consistently face the same scenario:  the ever-changing need to reconfigure tenant space.  As businesses change, their space requirements can fluctuate wildly.  They move, they expand, they downsize.  And because they do, DXS works alongside architects, engineers and owners to design VRF systems that can be configured – and reconfigured – to meet on-going and changing tenant HVAC requirements.

Key Considerations

  • Opportunity to reduce overall building construction cost
  • Designed as a modular system to any specifications required by the project
  • System is easily reconfigured after installation
  • Tight temperature controls of multiple zones for multiple tenants
  • Experienced staff and products that have the ability to interface with a wide variety of control systems
  • DXS onsite at five key junctures:  onsite training prior to installation, quality control checks during installation, during start-up, 30 days after commissioning for building owner verification, and ongoing training for staff
  • Fast, dependable service and maintenance support after installation
  • Complete inventory of parts and equipment locally stocked
