The New School

OVERVIEW

Award-winning architect Roger Duffy of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill is pursuing a LEED Gold certification for New School’s new University Center. The 16-story, 375,000 square foot addition will feature student dormitories, design studios, class space, a cafeteria, library, and state of the art-auditorium. Designed to have the smallest environmental footprint possible, the center features a demand ventilation control system, cogeneration plant, ice storage tanks, a highly efficient chilled water system, as well as black and gray water recycling systems.

Only TEC was trusted to create a fully synchronize system, operating the multiple mechanisms needed for this facility’s diverse use. By construction’s completion, TEC will have installed a Honeywell EBI with 60 XL1000 controllers and over 250 Spyder controllers connected by a single Ethernet network. To meet the specifications for demand-control ventilation, TEC is installing Inncom devices throughout the dormitory, to ensure each room is ventilated with pristine quality air in a cost-efficient manner. Finally, the Honeywell symmetrE front end will maximize ease-of-access and efficiency to all key system information. This is building automation made simple, for everyone. The University Center aims to become the hub of New School’s activity — activity made possible by TEC Systems.
