ABSTRACT
The article emphasizes the efficacy of indirect-evaporative air conditioning (A/C) systems in assuring sustainable engineering approach at the Springs Preserve facility in Las Vegas, Nevada. The design is part of the compliance for energy-efficient concepts and equipment for heating and air conditioning the building. Moreover, it also assures effective environmental engineering and sustainable design.
