Loyola University Cudahy Science Building
Loyola University Chicago
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.
