Each year, the Radiant Professionals Alliance (RPA) invites its members to submit their best radiant heating and cooling projects as entries in the System Design Showcase contest for a chance at awards and recognition. Entries in six different categories are screened and narrowed down to a select list. Then, the RPA Technical Committee determines which projects are chosen as winners.
REHAU is proud to announce that two of our customers placed in this year’s System Design Showcase with their outstanding entries. They include:
Reid Heating & Energy, Inc., San Rafael, CA
This customer received a second place award in the Cooling category for Sweetwater Spectrum, a housing facility in Sonoma, CA designed for adults living with autism. The project uses 22,000 feet (6,600 meters) of RAUPEX® O2 barrier pipe in facility-wide radiant heating and cooling systems. Read more.
