Anderson Collection at Stanford University

33,000 sf facility comprised of a uniquely designed HVAC system paired with lighting, blinds and shade control.
- Project was a mix of complex HVAC system and blend of integration to third party systems
- Hybrid Mechanical system comprised of campus controlled heating and chilled water loops with a dual duct fan system and stringent temperature, relative humidity, and CO2 level control at the zone level
WHAT SUNBELT CONTROLS DELIVERED
The job took approximately 18 months to complete and Sunbelt played an important role in assisting with the coordination of the building controls. The cooling fans, heating fans, pumps and heat exchangers are controlled by Stanford’s Delta V control system while the Dual Duct VAV zones are controlled by Distech/Tridium DDC system.
Additionally, integration into the third party ETC Lighting System and Embedia Shade/Blind control system was critical due to the sensitive artwork displayed in the building. The integration of those systems was ultimately combined into a Dashboard by Sunbelt for the Museum Docents giving them the ability to modify the lighting levels and lighting modes as well as adjusting the shades and blinds from a single interface.
While both third parties were familiar with BACnet integration, it required a great deal of time by Sunbelt related to the coordination, testing and custom programming to achieve the level of controls that was required by the University.
