Timbers Kiawah Oceanclub and Residences
Project was for construction of three new luxury condominium buildings, a beach club and a club house on the beach on Kiawah, SC. MECA provided HVAC, plumbing, and fire protection engineering design and construction administration services.
The residential buildings are conditioned using split systems coupled with one dedicated outside air unit (DOAU) per building. Smaller remote spaces will be conditioned using mini-split or ductless split units. Toilets will be exhausted through a chase to the DOAU on the roof allowing energy recovery.

Smaller remote spaces will be conditioned using mini-split or ductless split units.
