  • Nebraska Furniture Mart (The Colony, Texas)
    The project includes a 560,000 sf retail show building attached to a 1.3 million sf warehouse. Building functions include shipping/receiving, furniture and appliance repair, break rooms and a data center. MEP systems include a total of six 3,000 amp main switchboards with generators for life safety, a 3,000 ton central plant with ice storage for peak-time energy savings and eight 35,000 CFM VAV air handlers. Approximately 75,000 sf of the warehouse is designed with conditioned air, and the remaining warehouse is serviced by radiant heaters, high volume low-speed fans and air rotation units. Specialized repair areas consist of duct collection system humidity controls units.
  • Parkland Hospital Logistics Building (Dallas, Texas)
    The Parkland Logistics Building is an integral piece of the large New Parkland Hospital System.  The three-story Logistics Building will house the police department as well as the main hospital Lab serving Microbiology, Chemistry, and Esoterics.  The Logistics Building has 11 loading docks to accommodate all deliveries to the hospital, and it houses the medical gas farm for the entire hospital.  In addition, the building houses the main TransVac system that disposes of all the trash and waste from the main hospital tower.  This crucial building is completely backed up on generator power to avoid losing any critical activity in the event of a power outage.  It is served by roof-mounted, chilled water fan arrays, and the building is connected to the main Acute Care Hospital through a tunnel on the basement level.
  • Universal Technical Institute (Irving, Texas)
    UTI is an 88,000 sf educational facility for automotive, diesel and high-end vehicular repair. The project consisted of typical classrooms and course labs with operating engines, administration area, computer labs, and large lounge areas. Mechanical systems consisted of about 250 tons of VAV and CAV roof top units coordinated with varying exhaust requirements due to direct connections to vehicle exhaust and code required ventilation exhaust. Air pressurization controls and carbon monoxide sensors were integrated into the mechanical design. A new power distribution from the utility transformer via eight new electrical rooms distributed the power. We designed a lighting control scheme that met code but was also functional for a teaching atmosphere.
