MEP Engineering was selected by Air Training Support to provide mechanical and electrical engineering services for a Training Flight Simulator, located in Centennial, CO. Intergroup Architects was the selected architect for this project. MEP services were completed in March 2016, and construction for the project was completed in early 2017.
Services included removing and relocating the flight simulator and providing the design for a dedicated room for the computer equipment with 24/7 cooling and a raised floor. MEP also provided the design for another dedicated room for the hydraulic pumps and control equipment. We completed HVAC design for the warehouse the simulator resides in, which also included a custom HVAC unit ducted into the flight simulator to maintain a comfortable temperature for the pilots.
Built in the late 1970’s, this flight simulator has been used to train pilots for numerous scientific studies for over 40 years. Its new home is now the Stapleton Airport, located in Denver, CO.
