Boeing Maintenance Facility

  • Project Location: San Antonio, TX
  • Owner/Client: Boeing
  • Project Description:

Energy efficiency was a primary goal for Boeing in choosing an air conditioning system for their new maintenance facility in San Antonio. Boeing was initially looking for a chilled water system, but the prominent use of VRF technology by Boeing in other countries led them to compare the systems and choose VRF based on cost, energy efficiency and ease of maintenance.

DXS was chosen as basis of design for this project based on their superior warranty, part availability, training and local support staff. DXS provided two Daikin VRV III systems with a mixture of heat recovery and heat pump totaling 92 tons. Both systems also incorporated Daikin dedicated outdoor air systems and BACnet controls.

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
