Abstract:

Bell Hall Building No. 111 at Ft. Leavenworth, constructed in 1957, has undergone one major addition completed in 1986. Bell Hall is primarily used for officer training, which was its original intent. Over the years, equipment loads within the facility have increased, mainly due to increased computer usage. The original construction of this facility did not anticipate the additional computer load and the present mechanical and electrical systems are undersized. The systems are not capable of providing cooling all year which is a requirement for the new computers. Since its implementation, the HVAC systems have had problems maintaining environmental control. Saving energy and improving environmental control at the same time for this facility will be a difficult task. Many of the systems dont maintain the minimum temperature and ventilation levels in the building and are shut down most of the time. Modifying these systems to use less energy will require construction modifications to allow proper operation. This increased the cost of the EGOs and made reasonable paybacks difficult to achieve.
