System Design Highlights:

  • HVAC system design included a central water-source heat pump loop system with rooftop, closed-loop evaporative fluid coolers and indoor spray-water storage tanks on the lower level of the building.

Unique Project Challenges:

  • Our MEP design process required close coordination between the project architect, owner and construction manager to maximize leasable floor area on the upper levels of the building while still maintaining pathways for future tenants on the lower retail levels of the building.
