Town Hall Construction

The Town Hall roof has had leaks for many years and has needed full replacement for the last ten years plus. However, funding was limited so triage repairs have been completed in the meantime. The heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) for Town Hall is approximately 50 years old. The leaking roof has continued to cause damage to the ceiling in Town Hall offices and the HVAC system has continued to breakdown during critical times such as heat waves or cold spells requiring ongoing emergency maintenance.

The new roofing system will have a 30-year guarantee against leaks. The HVAC system is a Heat Pump system which will be all electric and eliminate the existing gas furnaces. The new heat pump system will also have significant energy savings as well as reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The system is known as a Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) with heat recovery and will reduce energy usage by approximately 25%. Because of the heat recovery it can recover and redirect heat from zones in cooling mode to zones requiring heating and vice versa which significantly increases efficiency. This repurposes would-be wasted heat into "free" heat for the building, reducing the outdoor unit's energy usage and delivering operational savings.
