    The Golf Channel hit a hole in one with the revitalization of part of its Orlando campus. The channel turned to Walker Design LLC to create a high-functioning, multi-use space within a 1,200-square-foot area. The space holds conference and training areas plus a genius bar. It has fully integrated audio/visual technology, integrated writable surfaces for informal gatherings and multiple movable seating options that can house 150 occupants. The floor and ceiling patterns reflect lively, pixelated textures to contrast with and balance the static walls. Photography by Chad Baumer Photography.

    Do football facilities engender championships? Clemson University believes so. The 2016 National Champs invested $55 million in a new 142,500-square-foot facility designed by HOK. The Allen N. Reeves Football Complex further elevates Clemson’s program and promotes the recruitment, training and development of student-athletes. The facility is adjacent to Clemson’s Indoor Football Practice Facility and the existing outdoor practice fields, bringing all football activity into close proximity allowing for more efficient daily operations.

Boston building replaces inefficient water tank with AERCO Innovation 600; expected to reduce fuel consumption by 25-30%

Location: BostonAERCOInnovation600

Industry: Office

AERCO Product installed: Innovation 600

What the Client Needed: For eight years, two gas-fired tank water heaters supplied domestic water to the office building in downtown Boston. Each heater was rated at 83% efficiency, with 540 MBH input and 125 gallons of storage. One heater, however, started losing its coating —supplying rusty water to the building.

AERCO’s Solution: The building’s management hired an engineering firm to tackle the problem. The client wanted a more energy efficient, retrofit solution — without the rigging nightmare. The best choice for the job? The AERCO Innovation 600… tankless, 96% efficient, and lighter and smaller than any competitor: • The Innovation’s design guarantees lighter weight and smaller overall dimensions. It’s small enough to fit through a standard doorway… a huge benefit in a crowded office building with small corridors and a mechanical room on the top floor. • The installing contractor was able to ride the Innovation up the building’s elevator, bringing it to the 35th floor and successfully rigging it through a stairwell to the mechanical room. There, it replaced the bigger, bulkier, less efficient and failed tank heater. • Since the Innovations were easily sidewall vented with PVC, it greatly reduced installation costs.

Return on Investment: The Innovation 600 is currently operating in parallel with the building’s remaining tank heater. When that tank heater inevitably fails, plans are in place to install a second Innovation. With their onboard Water Heater Management (WHM) systems, the office building can expect to reduce fuel consumption by at least 25 to 30%.
