“The Carrier Environmental Leadership Awards recognize companies that have invested in energy-efficient projects, which provide innovative, environmentally sound design solutions for their commercial buildings,” said Mary Milmoe, Carrier vice president of commercial marketing.
The Art Institute provided a unique challenge, according to William Caddick, the executive director of facilities for the building. “To properly maintain so many valuable works of art requires that humidity and temperature be kept at precise levels,” he said. “Adding to the challenge is a varied building design that includes multiple layers and high ceilings, as well as many skylights and revolving glass doors which add to the heat load.”
“The Art Institute of Chicago was a ‘win’ for both Carrier and our customer,” said Mike Bordes, regional general manager for Carrier Commercial Services. “The project was a perfect example of Carrier Commercial Service’s teamwork approach to providing customers with complete HVAC solutions.”
