In a career marked by design excellence across an array of commercial and industrial projects, this acclaimed architect describes the advantages of using Variable Refrigerant Flow systems (VRF) on several hospitality projects and why he wishes he could use it more often.
VRF zoning is a method of providing precise comfort control to buildings with multiple floors and areas by moving refrigerant through piping to the zone to be cooled or heated.
VRF zoning systems can simultaneously cool some zones while heating others. Regardless of time of day, sun or shade, season of the year or special requirements, VRF zoning systems provide personalized comfort to each zone or space.
This article examines many of the fundamental issues required for the specification and installation of site-cast concrete as it comprises approximately 70% of all U.S. concrete production and is directly influenced by specifier and inspection professionals. This is a companion piece to the Hanley Wood CEU article “Fundamentals of Concrete - Part 1” (Architect Magazine, June 2017), which covers concrete’s ingredients and their influences on quality concrete.
