Franklin Park Middle School
Franklin Park Middle School in Salem, Illinois, opened in 1980 and spans 82,398 square feet across two buildings. By 2021, four decades of use left many of the school’s facilities needing major renovations. Improvements would include expanded classroom space, a new parking lot, window replacements and, most significantly, an upgraded heating and cooling system to replace the outdated and inefficient system.
Journey Church International
Journey Church International (JCI) is a contemporary Christian church serving communities within the Kansas City metropolitan area. Their original building initially served staff and worshippers well but with services and activities nearly every day of the week, leadership knew it was time to expand. When planning a 52,000-square-foot addition, JCI wanted to ensure the systems in place would promote efficiency. With hundreds of people in and out of the building each week, their heating and cooling selection was very important. After consulting with the team at PM Contracting, Inc., the choice was clear: CITY MULTI® Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) technology.
Capitol Seniors Housing
Based in Washington, DC, Capitol Seniors Housing (CSH) has developed or acquired more than 120 senior housing communities nationwide and deployed over $2.5 billion of investment capital. The firm specializes in the design, development, financing and operation of state-of-the-art senior living communities and has earned a reputation for comfortable, safe, resident-centered life experiences for older adults. CSH has used CITY MULTI® Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) zoning systems from Mitsubishi Electric to maximize year-round comfort and improve net operating income (NOI) at several facilities since 2016.
Ontonagon Village Housing
After years of enduring expensive and uncomfortable electric-resistance heat, Michigan’s Ontonagon Village Housing, a subsidized housing facility, started the search for an alternative HVAC option. Having considered bringing in a gas pipeline to the town, the housing commission ultimately made the sustainable, comfortable and more cost-effective choice: mini-split heat pump systems from Mitsubishi Electric!
Geo Home
Geo is a net-positive energy home built for health, safety and a sustainable, nature-inspired living experience. Designed by GIGA Construction of Austin, Texas, Geo is the first project in the Houston 610 loop to pair a Tesla solar roof with battery backup for electrical grid independence. The solar-powered residence keeps energy requirements low with an airtight envelope, insulation, LED lighting and highly efficient appliances.
Credit Human Headquarters
San Antonio’s revitalized Pearl development, just two miles from the city’s popular Riverwalk and the famed Alamo, offers some of the Lone Star State’s most desirable real estate. Locally owned shops and boutiques, chef-led restaurants, more than 600 residences, a twice-weekly farmers market and a 5-Diamond hotel (Hotel Emma) can all be found at Pearl, which operated as the Pearl Brewery for over a century before its closure in 2001. Pearl was the ideal place for Steve Hennigan, CEO of Credit Human, to bring his vision for a sustainable, beautiful new headquarters to life.
800 North High Street (Moxy)
When Crawford Hoying purchased a piece of sought-after premium real estate in Columbus, Ohio’s popular Short North Arts District, they had to ensure the building would drive revenue. As a 150,000-square-foot mixed-use development, the vendors include a coworking space, two restaurants, a parking garage and Marriott’s new, modern hotel brand, Moxy. Having had great success with Mitsubishi Electric’s CITY MULTI® Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) systems in other projects, Crawford Hoying leadership knew the technology was well suited for the 800 North High Street Building.
AC Marriott Bridge Park
When Crawford Hoying, LLC and Brackett Builders, a local real estate developer and general contractor, respectively, decided to open a hotel in Dublin, Ohio, they had two main goals: create an energy-efficient hotel with a luxurious, sophisticated atmosphere. After consulting with Mike Machemehl, commercial sales manager, Mitsubishi Electric LLC, Crawford Hoying was sold on the efficiency, system quietness and rebate eligibility of Mitsubishi Electric’s CITY MULTI® Water-Source Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) technology.
Lofts at Empire Yard
When developer Brooks Patterson, owner of Prodigy Woodworks, first came across a 120-year-old former ice and coal warehouse in Macon, Georgia, he saw the opportunity for transformation. He set out to renovate the building’s 65,000 square feet of space into 28 loft-style apartments, adding amenities such as a pool and rooftop patios, while thoughtfully incorporating its historical design elements. But the high ceilings that Patterson knew would be aesthetically appealing to future tenants presented challenges when it came to choosing mechanical systems. Luckily, Zoned Comfort Solutions® from Mitsubishi Electric Trane HVAC US (METUS) offered the right solution.
