Social Security Administration

  • Project Location: Dallas, TX
  • Owner/Client: US Government
  • Project Description:

DXS was chosen as basis of design for a new Social Security Administration building in Dallas for its proven ability to provide facilities with energy-saving systems. DXS provided 50 tons of Daikin VRV/VRF heat recovery systems to the 17,500 square-foot building, creating an efficient system and a comfortable environment for occupants. The new system helped the building earn LEED status.

Government Key Considerations

Police stations, county court buildings, city halls, fire stations and libraries – these are just some of the structures city, county and federal governments build, operate and maintain.  And more often than not, local municipalities expect these buildings to last for decades, if not a century or more.  Faced with retrofitting these aging buildings, engineers and architects working on local government projects today are increasingly turning to VRF air conditioning systems.

DXS provides engineers and architects with VRF designs that cater to the tight confines of older buildings while also meeting new energy efficiency and ventilation standards.  On top of that, VRF systems make it possible to give tighter temperature control over multiple small zones.  Making dozens of office workers happy at the same time with the same system – now that’s a maintenance manager’s dream.

Key Considerations

  • Small mechanical footprint makes VRF systems ideal for retrofit projects
  • High energy-efficiency meets more stringent energy conservation guidelines
  • Opportunity to reduce overall building construction cost
  • Individual temperature control of smaller zones accommodates the needs of multiple users
  • Robust training program provided for maintenance managers and personnel
  • 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 provided after installation
  • Complete inventory of parts and equipment
