Nguyen Day Care

  • Project Location: Houston, TX
  • Owner/Client: Nguyen Day Care
  • Project Description:

Nguyen Day Care is on track to complete construction in 2017 and begin providing childcare services in Houston, TX. DXS worked with mechanical contractor FreshSolutions and engineer KME to design an energy efficient HVAC system to service this family-owned business. The day care was equipped with a Daikin VRV heat recovery system and Daikin rooftop unit, which were integrated into a Daikin i-Touch controls system to allow the owners to easily regulate the air conditioning throughout their building.

Education Key Considerations

School district facilities planners and maintenance personnel plus the design team who support them are tasked with developing and maintaining usable, comfortable buildings that promote learning. They must do this across the country under the scrutiny of school districts determined to spend every bond and tax revenue dollar wisely.

The DXS team understands the pressures under which school district personnel operate and we’ve helped alleviate much of that pressure. From our work with facilities planners and architects, we know that energy is one of the largest line items in a school budget. That’s where we can help. We design low-maintenance VRF air conditioning systems that reduce HVAC energy costs 20 to 50 percent.

Key Considerations

  • Systems that reduce HVAC energy costs by 20 to 50 percent
  • Opportunity to reduce overall building construction cost
  • Straightforward maintenance facilities crews can easily manage
  • Reduced maintenance costs compared to split-system or chilled water systems
  • Reduced mechanical space
  • Designs that accommodate space restrictions of prior systems
  • Ability to handle temperature control for dozens of small spaces
  • Energy efficient
  • Robust training program for facilities maintenance personnel
  • 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
