Johnson County Community College: Galileo’s Pavilion

Coupling passive design features with VRF – one of the most advanced mechanical system out there – not only provides an extremely efficient means of cooling and heating, but also saves the owner operating costs as well as extends the life of the building.

A commitment to environmental responsibility has affected every building project on the Johnson County Community College campus including Galileo’s Pavilion, a new 3,000-square-foot academic building. Through a host of super-efficient practices and products, including Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) technology from Mitsubishi Electric Cooling & Heating, Galileo’s Pavilion has become a LEED® Platinum certified showcase of sustainability. Download the PDF below to read more.
