Heartland Community College Agricultural Complex

Baumann Consulting is providing Enhanced Commissioning, Energy Consulting, and Sustainability Review services for Heartland Community College’s new Agricultural Complex in Normal, IL.

Heartland Community College’s new Agricultural Complex in Normal, IL will open in Fall 2023 and features classrooms, offices, flexible lab space, and an indoor greenhouse. The complex is designed to achieve the IFLI Net Zero Energy certification and includes high-performance systems including low-temperature radiant slabs, triple-pane glazing, ground-source heat recovery chillers, and roof-mounted photovoltaic systems.

The site program consists of a stormwater retention pond, parking and service areas, hoop houses and gardens, test plots, an orchard, and an outdoor classroom.

Baumann reviewed the MEP engineer’s energy model, and output throughout the design process, and developed a second energy model to validate the engineer’s model. Baumann was responsible for IFLI net zero performance verification, and full scope envelope and MEP systems commissioning including operation trend diagnostics.
