The Information Sciences and Technology (IST) Building at Penn State University is a serpentine-shaped, 200,000 square-foot project in State College, Pennsylvania. Formally opened in 2004, the new university building was designed by the Rafael Vinoly Architects, New York, and Perfido Weiskopf Architects, Pittsburgh and includes class- and computer rooms, offices and 28,000 square-foot of laboratories. Active chilled beams where installed in all of the about 300 offices. This $50 million project was one of the first active beam projects of this size in the USA.
 
In this project, TROX USA provided active chilled beams Type DID302 for office and laboratory cooling. This chilled beam system provides a high cooling load and achieves improved energy-efficiency at the same time.
In 2003 TROX USA provided active chilled beams for the IST building at Penn State University. In that time this was one of the first active chilled beams projects of this size in the USA.
 
Active chilled beam systems result in lower energy costs than traditional conditioning systems. In addition these beams yield reduced ductwork and plant room sizes and combine aerodynamic properties of ceiling diffusers with energy benefits of load dissipation using water.
