Southern Union State Community College

Wadley, AL
New Resource Center, Southern Union State CC

HHB serves as the MPFP engineers of record on the new Resource Center at Southern Union State Community College in Wadley Alabama.  The 20,000 SF building will serve many functions for the students including the library and meeting spaces.  The building is being constructed adjacent to a small lake on the Community College campus.  A closed-loop lake source heat pump system consisting of approximately 30,000 feet of pipe in bundles of 500 ft each will be installed in the lake as the heat source/sink for the geothermal heating and cooling system.  Water-source heat pumps are designed throughout the building and are connected to the lake system with central pumps.  Dedicated outside air units are provided for the entire building, with CO2 control in densely occupied spaces.

The project was completed in 2016.
