SAPP Design Associates


RTM was hired as the MEP engineer and commissioning agent for the multi-phased project at Waynesville High School. The scope of work included both renovations and additions to the existing high school building in order to better reconfigure spaces and suit the changing needs of the school.

A new 9th grade wing was added onto existing building and designed for approximately 20 wireless access points. Existing classroom spaces were upgraded and designed to reduce energy consumption by approximately 15-20%. Renovations and new construction was done for the wrestling/mat rooms, locker rooms, batting cage area, and crossfit/weight room. A new HVAC system was designed for these spaces as an energy recovery unit, consisting of a VRV system with DX split units with electric heat and remote heat pumps. The cafeteria space was expanded and a new lighting system was designed to accommodate the new space.

In addition, a new athletic field and complex were added to the north side of the high school. The new system components and general approach were designed to match the existing facility. A combination of rooftop units and VRV DX systems was provided for the field house building so that all spaces would be air conditioned and heated.
