Transcript

  • 1. Corona Maintenance Shop NYCT First LEED Certification
  • 2. Sustainable Design
    • Photovoltaic System
    • Fuel Cell System
    • Natural Ventilation
    • Daylighting
    • Rain Water Harvesting for Car Washer
    • USGBC Certification
    • Heat Recovery
  • 3. Daylighting Thorough light modeling was needed to ensure adequate lighting levels for workers in the shop
  • 4. Daylighting 95% of natural light during the day comes from skylights
  • 5. Daylighting Natural light during the day augments electric lighting
  • 6. Natural Ventilation No Need For Mechanical Ventilation
  • 7. Natural Ventilation From the lower louvers on the windward side to the louvers under the ceiling on the leeward side air circulates naturally
  • 8. Natural Ventilation On this warm night large roll-up steel mesh doors let the air in while maintaining security
  • 9. Energy Savings: exhaust air Heat Recovery Units
  • 10. Fuel Cell System Designed to Generate up to 200 KW Power Corona Fuel Cell uses natural gas (methane, CH 4 ), which reacts with steam to produce hydrogen. Excess heat resulting from electrochemical reactions is captured and utilized for domestic hot water.
  • 11. Fuel Cell System
  • 12. Photovoltaic System Roof Plan Designed to Generate up to 100 KW Power
  • 13. Photovoltaic System
  • 14. PV System and Fuel Cell connection to the building INVERTER D/C TO A/C BUILDING LOAD SWITCH BUS SWITCH BUS
  • 15. Rain Water Harvesting For Car Wash 40-50% of Car Wash Water is Reclaimed and Reused
  • 16. Rain Water Harvesting For Car Wash White EPDM roof with drains leading to the tank is also reflective to reduce heat-island effect
  • 17. Certified Moving Towards Environmental Excellence
