Project Name: Reed College ETC & Library Addition

Location: Portland, Oregon

Owner: Reed College

General Contractor: Hoffman Construction

Scope of Work:

  • Air Handlers
  • Ductwork
  • Bacnet Controls from Alerton


Hunter-Davisson was not only the installing contractor of the HVAC systems on the project, we were also commissioned to design the systems for the entire library and ETC addition.  We took the time to understand the needs of the college and provided the appropriate information to enable the college to make the most effective choices for their mechanical needs. We were able to overcome a number of unique challenges specific to the site, including heat loss/gain load calculations in rooms that generate substantial heat, maintaining specific humidity levels to meet long-term archiving criteria, and air conditioning/handling hurdles.
