Aircuity to Begin Installation at Virginia Commonwealth University
Aircuity will be installed in three laboratory research buildings at the Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) School of Medicine starting this month. Aircuity is acting as the turnkey contractor for the installation of Aircuity’s intelligent building platform along with upgrades to controls and exhaust systems.
Part of an $18 million performance contract between the university and Schneider Electric, the Aircuity system will decrease the energy usage in Sanger Hall, Kontos Hall, and Robert Blackwell Smith Hall. The energy savings from Aircuity will be used to address deferred maintenance projects in two of the buildings, including controls upgrades and consolidation of rooftop exhaust fans.
