The desired outcome is to provide the school with an efficient and economical HVAC system offering both heating and cooling functions.
The school was rebuilt in 2012 at which stage the heating system comprised ceiling mounted electric radiant panels, which satisfied MoE design guidelines at the time.
The current radiant panel system draws sufficient electrical current to cause disruption to other parts of the school’s electrical infrastructure. The system is functionally limited in that it offers heating but has no cooling function; MoE guidelines have changed in the meantime and now require that air conditioning be provided in warm climates. Gisborne falls within the North Island 2B – Warm zone which has the greatest number of allowable hours above 28OC in the country. The proposed system includes ducted supply and return fresh air; currently when teachers open windows to provide fresh air ventilation, the rooms immediately start accumulating dust from passing logging trucks.
