The Beauty of Designing with VRF Zoning Systems

In the most recent edition of our Architect newsletter, we addressed the dilemma architects often face when combining innovation with comfort in their designs. The solution: Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) zoning systems. VRF zoning technology opens the doors to limitless design possibilities and allows architects to strike that perfect balance between extraordinary design and optimal comfort. Here are some of the reasons why:

Turner Construction Company decided our VRF zoning system was ideally suited for its 13,000-square-foot office, which had been retrofitted from an old mattress factory built before air conditioning existed.

Engineered to Handle Any Job: Whether the space is large or small, a single floor or an entire building, VRF zoning systems can meet almost any design need. For instance, our systems have been used in all types of buildings, from the 9,212-square-foot LeyVa Middle School Administration Building to the luxurious Hotel Wilshire, a 74-room boutique hotel that incorporated our system into its design as it strived to achieve a LEED® Silver certification. In both these applications, the buildings benefitted from energy efficiency and exceptional zoned comfort.

Outdoor Aesthetics: The outdoor units of the VRF zoning systems have a small footprint and are lightweight. They can be placed in various locations depending on available space and visibility requirements. For the historic Muscatine County Courthouse, our compact VRF zoning system helped preserve the classic lines and grandeur of this 1907 Beaux Arts style courthouse.
