HHB Engineers (HHB) announces LEED Silver certification of the 18,500 SF Fuel Cell and Corrosion Control Facility at Dannelly Field for the Alabama Air National Guard. The project was certified using LEED v2.2. Included in the design is a ground source heat pump (geothermal) vertical bore closed loop system, consisting of six 250 ft deep wells, to condition the office area only. The main high bays, paint booth, and maintenance bays are equipped with exhaust systems and heating only system. Daylight harvesting was used to dim the lights in the high bay, reducing energy consumption in the building. Low flow plumbing fixtures were also used. The new facility is used for daily operation and maintenance of fuel cells and the control of corrosion in aircraft and tanks. The design provides a functional plan to allow for efficient and safe maintenance of the F-16 aircraft. Click the PDF download link above to view the full LEED Scorecard.
HHB Engineers (HHB) served as the Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, Design and Fire Protection Engineering consultants for the Facility, and was responsible for all aspects of the new Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning (HVAC) system electrical systems, fire detection & alarm systems, plumbing and fire protection systems.
