HVAC Upgrade


Project Scope

In an effort to reduce energy consumption at R.A. McMath Secondary School,  Rocky Point Engineering was retained to install a solar wall at the school.  We implemented a two-stage solar wall on the expansive gymnasium’s southern wall and linked it to the primary air handling units. By harnessing renewable solar energy, the solar wall effectively warms the incoming ventilation air destined for the gymnasium’s air handling units. Additionally, the DDC controls system enhances the ventilation process by drawing more air from the solar wall whenever it can contribute to heating the gymnasium. This approach not only conserves energy but also enhances the overall indoor air quality.

The project earned the Richmond School District an Efficiency in Action Award from FortisBC in 2022.
