Scheeser Buckley Mayfield LLC designed the HVAC, plumbing, and fire protection systems for a new education building. This building will have several different areas including animal exhibits, a full service kitchen, and conference areas. Also, this building was designed and constructed to be a LEED certified green building via several design elements. One major element is the HVAC system, which is a ground source heat pump system. Other ‘green’ elements will include displacement ventilation and waterless urinals. This building is currently occupied and in the LEED certification phase. A part of this new 35,000 square-foot building was the Komodo Kingdom education center at the Akron Zoo. Total construction costs were approximately $9.3 million, and the building was designed and constructed with many environmentally conscious materials and practices. SBM performed the LEED required commissioning on the project as well.
