Dillon Community Church
This project involved design of a 12,600S.F. addition to an existing church for the community of Dillon. This addition consisted of a worship area with seating for 500 people, narthex, four (4) classrooms, student lounge, office space, a kitchenette, and restrooms.
The worship area was served by a heating only, indirect fired make-up air unit with modulating gas burner. Microprocessor based controls were utilized to modulate the firing rate based on supply air and space temperature, and modulate the outside air volume based on the space CO2 level to minimize energy costs.
The narthex, classrooms, student lounge, and kitchen were served by heating only rooftop units with modulating gas burners and stainless steel heat exchangers due to the large quantity of outside air required. Microprocessor based controls were utilized to modulate the firing rate based on space temperature and modulate the outside air volume based on the space CO2 level to minimize energy costs.
The office space was served by a heating and cooling rooftop unit with gas heat and DX cooling due to the daily occupancy requirements of this space.
The restroom groups were ADA compliant and utilized wall mounted fixtures to make cleaning easier. The building addition was fully sprinkled with a wet pipe sprinkler system using quick response sprinkler heads.
