The Mountaineer is a retail complex building know under this name since 1885.
The existing building on the site was a protected historic building. It was therefore a requirement that the front façade was to remain, and the rest of the building was designed to accommodate this.
The developer had originally hoped to use water sourced condensers to minimise plant space requirements. However, unfortunately the low lying water table of the nearby lake caused huge issues at the time of construction and soaked up a lot of time and money.
Being a retail complex housing a lot of individual retail spaces, it also meant that control had to be thought out carefully and limited to certain areas.
The developer eventually had to choose air sourced condensers as an alternative to water. These were placed on the roof of the building. While not being able to use the water sourced units was a disappointment, the air sourced units are doing a great job.
The Mountaineer had two central control systems installed which communicate back to a TG2000A for proportioning the power to each tenant. There is also a BACnet interface computer to the main building BMS.
