UFCU Administrative Center

  • Project Location: Austin, TX
  • Owner/Client: University Federal Credit Union
  • Project Description:

DXS was selected as basis of design for the University Federal Credit Union Austin Administrative Plaza along the Mopac expressway in north central Austin.

The server and electrical rooms posed problems for the project as standard cooling solutions wouldn’t provide the line lengths needed to cool these spaces. However, VRF allows line lengths of up to 3,280 ft, making it the perfect solution for the facility, allowing for climate-control of these two critical areas.

Installed was a 38 ton Daikin heat pump system with wall mounted units and cassettes.

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
