    The 95,000-square-foot William Roberts School located in Denver’s new Stapleton neighborhood serves as a model for high-performance schools in the area. The architecture, mechanical systems, electrical/lighting systems, and site development for this K-5 school were collaboratively designed to create a comfortable, environmentally conscious learning environment. As the mechanical engineer, RMH was responsible for design of resource-conserving HVAC and plumbing systems. The HVAC system is built around a ground source heat pump system that utilizes the relatively constant temperature of soil under the school to provide efficient building heating and cooling. Additional energy savings are realized through the use of dedicated heat recovery units. Integrated building automation keeps building systems operating in harmony, with lighting, heating, and cooling optimized in response to one another.
