Renton High School

Renton High School

Client: Renton School District
Location: Renton, WA

Located in downtown Renton, WA, the historic Renton High School (RHS) was originally built in 1911. The initial building was later demolished to make room for an updated school with improvements and additional space for the increasing population of the area. Over its 105-year history the high school has been rebuilt and expanded upon many times. The latest improvements began in 2013 with a complete controls retrofit of the RHS Campus, including the entire mechanical system.

A Direct Digital Control (DDC) system was originally installed at RHS in 2000, and then updated in 2010. The District was never completely satisfied with the operation of the system or the support they received from the original installer. Within three months of operation the District switched to manual boiler control due to ongoing issues with the boiler control interface. Although it was being controlled manually, the staff knew the boiler and the rest of the school was operating inefficiently. In order to address the issue, the District, working with a local energy service company (ESCO), approached ATS to perform a complete DDC retrofit at the RHS.
