Design Program: The Ferris State University, Student Recreation Center was built in 1962 to provide recreational services for the students of Ferris State University and the community it resides in. In 1998, the building was renovated and a majority of the architectural facilities were upgraded. The facility had the same mechanical, electrical, and plumbing system that the building was given at construction.
Byce & Associates, Inc. provided Architectural and Engineering Services relating to the renovation of the Student Recreation Center (SRC) Mechanical System for the improvement of the Heating, Ventilating, and Air Conditioning (HVAC). Changes were made to the HVAC system, which included floor plan reconfiguration and space conditioning verification and balancing for the areas that had the existing air conditioning systems. Major features were the air condition for the gym and fitness areas along with new Air Handling Unit’s for the locker rooms in the facility.
