The University of Kentucky’s Research Building 2 is a state-of-the-art research facility focused on Kentucky health disparities that impact the state. This $265 million dollar building that has an overall design of 300,000 square feet will accommodate over 500 researchers such as Principal Investigators, postdoctoral scholars, graduate and undergraduate students. Thomas J. Dyer’s overall scope of work consisted of installing fourteen air handling units, High-Pressure Steam Systems, Chilled and Hot Water Systems, HVAC Systems and an Energy Recovery System that will help save the university thousands of dollars annually by recovering and reusing energy in the HVAC systems.
