Project Highlights and Results

  • MEPFP design services for complete interior renovation of 100+ year old historic building that is part of the University’s original quad.
  • Building houses physics-based student laboratories, classrooms, offices and building support spaces.
  • Enhanced energy performance, occupant comfort, and indoor air quality achieved through sustainable systems consistent with previous Elara designs across the LUC campus and the University’s climate action commitments.
  • Services included schematic design, permit/bid/construction document preparation, bidding, construction services and functional testing.
  • Engineering features include:
    • Low energy laboratories with MEP systems suited to individual spaces.
    • High performing, optimized heat recovery wheel design installed in lower cost air handler to maximize value.
    • BIM coordinated mechanical room allowed for maximum space utilization
    • Optimized fan coil design and low temperature DOAS air delivery allow for utilization of campus dual temperature system without sacrificing comfort.
    • Innovative use of neighboring building fire pumps via piping in tunnel and reuse of existing buried pipe allowed for space and cost savings.
    • Project included reinsulating walls and reuse of 100+ year old structure.
