PITTSBURGH - Carnegie Mellon University recently received a Carrier Regional Environmental Leadership Award. The award was presented to Carnegie Mellon for the HVAC portion of its recent Henderson House residence hall renovation during the Greenbuild International Conference & Expo. The U.S. Green Building Council hosted the conference at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh from Nov. 12-14.

Henderson House serves as a holistic health promotion model to the traditional resident hall setting. The renovation project - which included a high-efficiency 100-ton Carrier 30GX Ecologicâ„¢ (Eta) chiller (photo above) and a 39M Aero air-handling unit - qualified the building for registration under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating Systemâ„¢.
