As a complement to the new production studios, Turner Entertainment Group added two new buildings to the main campus on the 1-75/85 corridor in downtown Atlanta. The new facilities were built to house all network operations previously located at the Old Turner Mansion.
As with the production studios, sound levels were a primary concern. TBCo sales engineers worked closely with the consulting engineer to select the optimum combination of fan wheel sizes, discharge openings, and sound attenuation components to meet the acoustical requirements of the facility.
Temtrol Custom Air Handling Units were selected for the project, and TBCo sales staff coordinated with McKenneys Inc, the mechanical contractor, on final configuration and fabrication of the units. Prior to shipment the CES Lab was utilized for leakage, airflow, and sound testing.
The final result was an installation of twelve Temtrol air handling units, of three different designs, delivering a total of 515,000 cfm.
