Fort Wayne Public Safety Academy

Complete Range. Recirculation Air with Heat and Cool

Public Safety Fort Wayne Range is LEED certified in all areas. The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System, developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), provides a suite of standards for environmentally sustainable construction. Individuals recognized for their knowledge of the LEED rating system are permitted to use the LEED Accredited Professional (AP) acronym after their name, indicating they have passed the accreditation exam given by the USGBC.

The range has a recirculation air system; which is based on the original NIOSH 76-130, ( HEW Publication NIOSH 76-130 ) range criteria. In this example, the Public Safety Academy took energy efficiency to the next level. The Fort Wayne Public Safety Academy has engineered in additional operational efficiencies, which include solar boiler, solar passive heating, GTDX cooling, and additional air-to-air energy exchangers.

Patriot designed this range from the ground up. Constructed with our Envirostop rubber bullet trap and our Independence target system, this facility will be on the cutting edge of advanced for years to come.

The range was designed to meet the LEED silver level standard expectations of the public safety commission. Our approach was to implement a recirculating air system with stage control ducting for tactical range capabilities. The system utilizes air to air energy exchangers, gas fired heat exchangers, solar boiler, Geo thermal exchangers, solar electric passive chiller as well as standard boiler & chiller systems. The operational energy efficiencies rate at over 78%. The combined system further reduces the need for fossil fuel consumption by 12 to 14% by comparison.

In 2008, the finished range became the first L.E.E.D silver certified range HVAC in America.
