Warren Developmental Learning Center
A uniquely engineered building with an inspiring purpose, the Warren Development Learning Center was built as an education facility for autistic students, as well as a place for assisting and easing them into the world. The center is administered by the Morris-Union Jointure Commission and provides support and services for approximately 250 students with autism.
An extraordinary amount of excavation, piping and construction was required for this 167,000 sq ft, three-story facility. The design took advantage of its natural setting and steeply sloped location to allow for many environmentally conscious features.
One feature Binsky & Snyder installed was the highly-elaborate geothermal heating and cooling system that uses the earth’s natural, constant temperatures to cost-effectively regulate the building’s internal temperature.
Binsky also installed the building’s rooftop energy recovery units, pool dehumidification unit, VAV boxes, and water source heat pumps.
