PISCATAWAY, N.J. - Trane announced that it has won a competitive bid process for a $1.8 million contract to supply air-handling and climate control equipment to Mason City Schools, one of Ohio's largest school districts serving more than 9,000 students in seven buildings.

As part of construction on a new Mason City Schools Early Childhood Center and an addition to the Intermediate Campus, Trane will supply 300-ton RTAC chillers, modular air-handling units, variable air volume controllers, and its Tracer Summit building automation system.

"Our existing relationship with Trane made them an ideal choice for the project," said Shelly Benesh Hausman, public information officer, Mason City Schools. "This contract will allow us to integrate all of our different school buildings into one common system operated and maintained by Trane equipment and controls while preserving the level of service we have come to expect from Trane."

"The RTAC chiller is engineered for lower life cycle costs and reliability, through design simplicity which is particularly important for schools," said Gary Luepke, senior systems engineer, Trane. "Our Tracer Summit building automation system combines hardware components and engineering applications into a single, logical, and efficient system that makes it ideal for customers who need to consolidate various processes, even across different buildings."

Trane has supplied Mason City Schools with HVAC equipment and controls since Mason Middle School was built 10 years ago and has maintained a maintenance contract since 1997. In 2002, Mason City Schools built a new high school and community center, the largest of its kind in Ohio, for which Trane provided the equipment and controls and a daily on-site service technician throughout the first year.

"Education facilities across the country are looking for ways to improve learning environments for students and lower operating costs," said Luepke. "In the past 30 years, Trane has become an HVAC industry leader in environmental product research and development and has supplied hundreds of schools with the highest quality HVAC products to address energy efficiency, humidity control, indoor air quality, and acoustics."
