Transcript

  1. The new network communicationsbuilding at Fort Gillem near Atlanta,Georgia houses complex networkservers and conduit racks and is thehub for all communications on thebase.The building contains a network room, office, restroom andunderground vault. Space is at a premium.As a result, McKenney’s Team of automation and controls expertsworked closely with the general contractor and the U.S. Army Corpsof Engineers (USACE) to establish an optimal environment for peakmechanical equipment performance.
  2. McKenney’s devised a strategy, involvingseveral controllers, to regulate temperature,humidity and other environmental setpoints for the space.Four factory controllers were installed for theindividual NRAC units and the team alsodeployed a programmable, interoperableMicroNet 800 Series master controller to providerotation sequencing and to ensure failure/backupoperation for the NRACs.
  3. USACE team members were ecstaticwhen it was revealed that the controllerwas selfsustaining. It is programmed toautomatically activate additional NRACunits as required to accommodateincreased capacity and is prepped forintegration with future remote accessvia military communications networks.
  4. McKenney’s accommodated the manyductwork redesigns by providing andincorporating isolation dampers for installationdirectly on air units to more effectively controlair flow as required.As a result, if additional reconfiguration isnecessary, the isolation dampers will minimizeits effect on the entire system.Controllers only work if ductwork isconfigured properly.
  5. As with any military project, securitywas a critical element.McKenney’s deployed ananti-terrorism switch to isolate thebuilding from outside threats.With the push of a button, intake andexhaust fans stop and the building’senvironmental controls are handledcompletely from within the structure.
  6. Thanks to McKenney’sinnovations and a concertedteam effort with the generalcontractor and USACE team,vital NRAC equipment in theFort Gillem networkcommunications building nowoperates at peak energyefficiency.The content of this document is not intended as an endorsement.
