PLUS Design | Jungheinrich Qingpu, a 38.000 m2 campus with more than 100 workplaces using Vital-Office furniture
PLUS Design | Jungheinrich Qingpu, a 38.000 m2 campus, heated purely on geothermal energy. Around Shanghai, heating and cooling is usually done by air conditioning. The indoor unit provides (hopefully) the required comfort; while the outdoor unit exchanges heat with the outdoor air. In winter, this outdoor air temperature drops well below 0° in winter, while reaching 40° in summer… What if we have this outdoor unit exchange with water running trough an underground-buried pipe instead? Experience learns this water temperature does not drop below 10°, or go over 30°… sounds better!
