MEP Engineering was selected by Colorado State University to provide mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineering services for two new student housing facilities, located on their Pueblo Campus. These projects included two new 250 bed, three-story student housing facilities of approximately 80,000 square feet each. MEP services were completed in October 2010.
MEP designed the main level student common to accommodate future students’ personal and social needs. We included: private study rooms, great rooms, private conference rooms, a convenient bistro and serving aisles, a cyber lounge, central laundry facilities, mail room, and reception and waiting areas. The mechanical system for the building incorporated a water source heat pump system originally designed with highly-efficient boilers and cooling towers. We planned the boilers and cooling towers to accommodate being transferred to a “Ground Source Geothermal System” which university representatives are considering installing. The project is registered with the USGBC and achieved “LEED GOLD Certification.”
