Hazelwood Weddings New Oxford, PA

Conceived by a local husband and wife team as a premier wedding and event destination, Hazelwood Weddings is situated on a wooded 18-acre site in a historic Adams County borough known for its antique shops and annual antiques and crafts show in June.

The new 6,000-square-foot building’s design reflects the owners’ desire for a modern look, clean lines and a climate-controlled environment. The main hall is a bright, open space featuring a high vaulted ceiling. Auxiliary spaces include two private meeting rooms, a catering prep area, an office, storage, and restrooms.

As the project’s plumbing and mechanical engineer, GBE performed meticulous ventilation calculations necessitated by the many different zone types. Acoustics were also a consideration, which led to our review of several different types of HVAC units and system location alternatives. Because the specified electrical system could not handle the power requirements of a standard HVAC system, we designed a twinned air handler and condensing unit arrangement. A jet-slot diffuser was our solution for moving conditioned air down from the high ceiling to the occupancy zone.
