Emory University Donna and Marvin Schwartz Center for Performing Arts Commissioning

Commissioning of the Donna and Marvin Schwartz Center for Performing Arts. The building includes an 825 seat world class concert hall, a black box theatre, a dance studio, classrooms, practice rooms, offices, libraries, recording studios, and rehearsal studios. The commissioning scope includes a review of, and comments on, the Owner’s project requirements, the design team’s Basis of Design, and review of the design team’s design development and construction documents. The commissioning effort also includes complete functional testing of the installed mechanical systems, including the innovative underfloor conditioning system for the main performance hall, and validation and verification of the building’s direct digital control (DDC) system and its incorporation into the campus-wide automation network. Sustainable features incorporated into the building include occupancy sensors for variable ventilation air control, automatic optimization of supply air temperatures, and active pressurization control.
