University of Michigan – Leinweber Building
Location: Ann Arbor, Michigan
Date of Completion: Summer 2025
Griswold Controls Products Used: QuickSet Coil Piping Packages (CPPs) with Hoses
For those who don’t know: The University of Michigan is renowned for its leadership in public research, particularly in computer science and information studies. In the spirit of keeping that reputation, the U of M is on the verge of a groundbreaking development. Take this quote from their website:
“Computer, data, and information science are quickly becoming the backbone of systems that connect society. Creating a space where top scholars in computing and information can come together to help solve some of the greatest challenges in modern medicine, transportation, smart infrastructure, and more, will help the University of Michigan remain at the forefront of advances in computer science and information.”
The university is crafting the Leinweber Computer Science and Information Building, a cutting-edge facility spanning 163,000 square feet. This architectural marvel will house the School of Information and offer expansion room for the Computer Science and Engineering Division of Michigan Engineering, uniting these two entities under one roof for the first time. The structure is set to boast active learning classrooms, adaptable research labs, student services areas, offices, and an array of collaborative spaces. Anticipated completion is set for Summer 2025.
At the heart of this contribution lies the enhancement of heating and cooling systems in the Leinweber Computer Science and Information Building.
Key Product: Griswold Controls QuickSet Coil Piping Packages (CPPs) with Hoses
The university chose RL Deppmann, a distinguished representative in HVAC and plumbing systems across Michigan and Ohio. A cornerstone of RL Deppmann’s contribution is the
incorporation of Griswold Controls’ QuickSet Coil Piping Packages (CPPs) with hoses. These pre-assembled piping systems are comprehensive, including flow control valves, isolators, ball valves, unions, Y-strainers, temperature control valves, stainless steel hoses, insulated hoses, air vents, pressure/temperature test valves, and drain valves. The advantages are manifold, from streamlining installation to eliminating field assembly errors, reducing labor costs, saving energy, and minimizing maintenance expenses.
What sets QuickSet CPPs with hoses apart is the use of the QuickSet manual balance valve, featuring a brass venturi insert and graduated memory stop. This valve allows precise flow adjustment and measurement, offering low-pressure drop, exceptional accuracy, and impeccable sealing. The QuickSet valve, with a union end connection, facilitates easy installation and removal, available in various end styles and sizes ranging from 2.5″ to 20.” Tailored for air handling units, chillers, towers, and pumps, these valves epitomize reliability and efficiency.
Through the University of Michigan’s unwavering dedication to excellence, the Leinweber Computer Science and Information Building now guarantees peak performance and efficiency in its heating and cooling systems. This translates into a commitment to comfort and convenience for the faculty, staff, and students who will inhabit this pioneering facility. Griswold Controls takes immense pride in contributing to this historic investment, fortifying Michigan’s education and research infrastructure.
