Building Mechanical and Energy Systems Laboratory

The Building Mechanical and Energy Systems (BMES) Laboratory, 2410 Learned Hall, is a flexible teaching and applied-research space.  The western portion has workbenches, tools, instruments, and storage for hands-on projects.  The eastern portion is for teaching HVAC, energy, solar, plumbing/piping, controls, and fire protection courses using multimedia electronics as well as practical demonstrations. ASHRAE-funded, student-built benchtop HVAC teaching stations in the lab help students gain a better understanding of the BMES courses' lecture material.  The room's overhead HVAC system was intentionally left exposed for teaching purposes.
