Bradford White Training Facility Raises the Bar
Heat sources include five dedicated Laars NeoTherm boilers with an input of 1.7 million BTUs.
â€śEach and every operating mechanical component of the buildingâ€™s mechanical system serves as a training tool. Thereâ€™s no substitute for seeing these components in operation and seeing how they interconnect; itâ€™s hands-on training in the best sense,â€ť said Dustin Bowerman, director of technical services, who â€“ along with Mike Gordon, senior VP of engineering – designed much of the system. â€ś
Building layout and design was the result of customer feedback and the goal of creating a comfortable, ultra-efficient learning center â€“ a working laboratory to serve for generations, allowing easy introduction of emerging technology as they see fit.

There are two interwoven mechanical systems in the building, both installed by Quality Air, a Comfort System USA company. First, the actual system to heat and cool the structure, and second, the live-fire lab. Heat sources include five dedicated Laars NeoTherm boilers with an input of 1.7 million BTUs; these are located in the mechanical room. The live fire lab has 10 working hands-on stations, each with a variety of equipment chosen to match course curriculum. The heating capacity of the lab is up to 5 million BTUs.
