Kappa Kappa Gamma

Fayetteville, AR

The University of Arkansas’ chapter of the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority recently renovated and expanded upon their 60-year-old chapter house. The 33,000-square-foot existing facility was gutted down to the structure and 14,000 square feet was added to provide updated assembly areas, a new commercial kitchen, and modern sleeping quarters. The three story building is conditioned using chilled-water fan coil units with electric heat, providing localized temperature control and increased occupant comfort. This system also provides flexibility and increased energy efficiency due to the large amount of assembly spaces that have varying loads throughout the day. The high occupant density requires large amounts of ventilation air, for which a dedicated outdoor air unit is provided. The 60-ton, air-cooled chiller is a significant upgrade with respect to energy efficiency over the existing system and has excellent turndown capabilities to match space load diversity. A fully integrated building management system controls all system components
