MEP for 400,000 sq. ft. Building Renovation
Budget: $80 Million
Location: Hartford Connecticut
Architects: Becker + Becker
Scope: LN Consulting was retained by an architect/developer to complete the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing design to convert renovate an existing 400,000 sq. ft. building into a 285 unit apartment building with office/retail space in Hartford, Connecticut.
The building is 26 stories tall and is fitted with a high-efficiency heat pump system with an energy recovery ventilation system. The building is fitted with a fuel cell which provides a bulk of the building heat, domestic water heat, and building electricity.
We worked closely with the design team to incorporate creative energy efficiency methods with respect to heating/heat pump system piping configurations, differential pressure loop controls, and implementation of occupancy and daylight-controlled lighting. We completed the development of a more sustainable electrical distribution system that also accommodated the power supplied by the fuel cell. The project has achieved LEED Platinum certification.
