Calvin Engineering Geothermal Design and Monitoring Project


The goals of this project include designing an efficient sustainable HVAC system for a suite in Calvin's new dorm wing, designing a method to educate the Calvin Community about sustainable HVAC, and having both designs approved and constructed in the new residence hall addition to the Kalsbeek-Huizenga dorm.

This project is intended to provide support for the "Living and Learning" environment that is currently encouraged in each of the dorms through a data collection and display system which will allow students to study how a Geothermal HVAC system operates in comparison to Calvin's current HVAC system (a network of boilers and chillers). An informational kiosk will be constructed in the main lobby of the dorm wing entrance where students can learn how these systems operate and see live performance data compairing the different HVAC systems.
