The new Adams 12 CTE, Future Forward at Washington Square, building was a new build project which expanded the district’s technical education programs. This allowed Diesel, Welding, Construction, EMT, and other programs from Adams12 Bollman Tech to be moved to CTE once complete.
The heating and cooling to the building is provided by a ground source geothermal system. Water to air heat pumps serve each program space. Finding locations for all of the heat pump equipment posed a problem during design, but this was alleviated in the BIM coordination process.
