David Ellis – Published in CSE Magazine

CSE LogoDavid Ellis, SVP Allen & Shariff Engineering – Columbia, MD, was published in Consulting-Specifying Engineering Magazine this week.

The article covers Ellis’ experience in K-12 Schools, how the characteristics of schools have changed, what engineers should expect in the future, and how working with K-12 differs from colleges and universities.

David Ellis: “I was involved with the design of a complete renovation of a 330,000-sq-ft high school located in Washington, D.C. This project included a natatorium, performance auditorium, arts center, gymnasium, two kitchens, and academic classrooms, including labs. The high-performance conditioning and ventilation system for this school involved the matching of a hydronic variable refrigerant flow (VRF) system, using a ground coupled approach along with a dedicated outdoor air system (DOAS). Design was performed using a design assist contract, which included a great deal of cost control input from the contractor, as this allowed for an accelerated construction schedule while containing costs. As this was a renovation, BIM software proved valuable for coordination.”
