MUNCIE, Ind. - Trane has won a bid to supply air-handling systems, climate controls, and service to Ball State University (BSU) as it begins construction on a new communications and media building.

BSU serves more than 20,500 graduate and undergraduate students. The 1,035-acre residential campus includes 67 buildings valued at $1.1 billion.

"Trane's efficient and reliable HVAC systems have been keeping BSU students comfortable for 14 years, "said Jim Lowe, director facilities, engineering, and assessment, Ball State University. "Trane experts developed a unique system solution just for us that improves indoor air quality and will help us ensure our continued U.S. Green Building Council Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification."

Trane's Tracer Summitâ„¢ building automation system creates an interface that will align BSU's current buildings and the new building's equipment. In addition to providing an alternative to ultraviolet light in the air-handling units to improve indoor air quality, Trane will provide the BSU campus with the following:

  • Four M-Series Climate Changerâ„¢ air handlers with modular design to control ventilation airflow and allow ease of customization.

  • One hundred sixty VariTraneâ„¢ variable-air-volume (VAV) units to control the flow of supply air and maintain a comfortable room temperature.

  • Nine Force-Floâ„¢ cabinet heaters that provide high-capacity forced air heating for entryways and corridors.

  • Four unit heaters to provide spot heating.

  • Tracer Summit building automation system to provide integrated control of all aspects of the school's climate and lighting systems.

  • A one year all-inclusive parts warranty for the control systems and a one year labor, service, and maintenance agreement.

    "We are pleased to continue our relationship with BSU," said Brian Lohman, Trane account manager. "And we're committed to providing the university with environmentally responsible HVAC products, systems, and services that comply with LEED requirements and exceed the comfort needs of their building occupants."
