When the City of Naples, located on the southwest coast of Florida, experienced significant temperature and humidity issues with its existing air conditioning system, it contacted Advanced Air Systems (AAS), a full-service HVAC contractor and a division of Advanced Roofing, Inc. to provide a solution that would overcome the lack of cooling and zoning and deliver a controlled cooling solution throughout the building.

To remedy the airport’s air conditioning issues, Advanced Air Systems installed a Daikin variable refrigerant volume (VRV) system along with Daikin rooftop units (RTUs). The VRV technology was a perfect fit as it delivers individualized comfort control with substantial energy savings.

Working in an operational airport posed a challenge for the AAS crew as the building was 100% occupied throughout the project. Safety was the top priority for the team as well, along with the comfort of the airport’s employees and passengers. The AAS crew had to ensure the existing air conditioning system remained fully-operational while they were installing the new Daikin systems. The temperature inside the airport could not rise above 75 degrees for longer than eight hours, which was the amount of time allotted to install the new RTUs.

To overcome these job site challenges and to ensure successful project completion, the AAS team carefully coordinated and planned of all aspects of the installation with the airport staff. A significant component of the overall project plan was the scheduled site plan created by AAS to detail where and when the crew would be working. This plan was flawlessly executed which kept the project on track and allowed the client to adjust their operations accordingly.

The Naples GA Airport project was completed on time and within budget to the satisfaction of the City of Naples.
