Waller City Hall

  • Project Location: Waller, TX
  • Owner/Client: City of Waller
  • Project Description:

The city of Waller, Texas broke ground on construction for their new City Hall & Civic Plaza in January, 2019. Daikin has been a significant part of the Waller community since 2017, when the Daikin Texas Technology Park brought more than 4 million square feet of  VRV manufacturing space to the city, and began the first production of VRV equipment in the United States.

To support the City of Waller, Daikin donated a VRV HVAC system for the new City Hall construction. DXS was selected as basis of design for the project, and worked closely with Corgan, Welty General Contracting, DerryBerrys LLP, and EMA Engineering & Consulting to provide a system suited to the new facility. The City Hall is expected to be completed in 2019, and will include Daikin ductless cassettes, ducted concealed VRV units, branch selector boxes, and mini-split wall-mounted cooling units.

During the groundbreaking ceremony, Waller Mayor Danny Marburger thanked Daikin for their contributions to the community. DXS and Daikin are proud to be a part of this project, and the continued growth of the local economy.

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
