Project Description:

Rader Engineering was responsible for the design of the MEP systems for this extremely high-end home in Eagle County, which included a main house, pool house and caretaker house. The mechanical systems for the home include hydronic radiant floor heating and forced air heating/cooling throughout. All fan coils have VFD drives which allow for more precise temperature control in the rooms and electrical energy savings. Specific attention was paid to the custom integration of the continuous linear bar grilles into the architecture. Another design priority was minimizing all noise and vibration into the living spaces. This was achieved by mounting all fan coils to the floor of the crawl space with special mounting and by isolating piping and ductwork with commercial grade vibration isolators. The building’s core plant systems consist of two high efficiency boilers and three outdoor chillers. The HVAC systems are controlled by a sophisticated DDC system.
There is a natural gas generator for back-up power. Due to extremely low available water pressure, a dual pump VFD driven pumping system was designed and installed for domestic water service and fire protection.
