Real Matters, Second Floor Tenant Improvement

Project Description

MEP Engineering was selected by the Colorado State Land Board in conjunction with Real Matters Real Estate to provide mechanical and electrical engineering services for the Dodge Brothers Showroom building, located in Denver, CO. This two-story brick building included 25,000 square feet with a 6,400 square foot basement. Elsy Studios and Waring Associates were the selected architects for this project with Coda Construction as the preferred General Contractor. MEP services were completed in 2017 and construction for the building is ongoing.

This project included the following upgrades: new HVAC (VAV System) with hydronic heat, new electrical distribution, and main switchgear, and new core restrooms. The second floor was built out for Real Matters with Elsy Studios and the first floor, basement, exterior, and the core was built out with Waring Associates.

 

Mikron Office, Core and Shell, Tenant Improvement

Project Description

In partnership with Mountain Aire Mechanical, MEP provided plumbing engineering services for both the landlord and tenant in this new Build-To Suite office/industrial building. Our design included a centralized compressed air system with over 65 tool drops throughout the various areas of production within the shop side of the building.

The Englewood location allows Mikron to increase their USA presence and strengths their capacity by 30% with additional land for future growth. The new building layout and design fosters process improvement and supports flexibility which are key components that allows Mikron to continue to services their clients for years to come.

Recent code changes require water extending beyond 25 linear feet from a hot water heater be recirculated to reduce water and energy waste. MEP Engineering provided design for the complete single-zone domestic hot water re-circulation loop for the office portion of this project.

 

Urological Associates, Tenant Improvement

Project Description

MEP was selected by the Urological Associates clinic to provide mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering services for their new office at the Medical Center Point office complex, located in Colorado Springs, CO. The project included 7,000 SF of medical office space, with YOW Architects as the lead architect. MEP services were completed December of 2014.

Due to the age of this facility, the design team encountered a variety of existing conditions during their initial survey including varying ceiling heights throughout the 7,000 SF space. The medical office suite required replacement of (3) constant volume RTU’s, all new plumbing and complete LED lighting upgrades. The combination of the new systems and upgrading of the lights really brought this medical office to a completely new beautiful suite.

 

Pickard and Ross Tenant Improvement

We provide engineering design services for the renovation of Pickard and Ross Law’s existing office space in conjunction with Intergroup Architects. The suite is 6,000 square feet and includes private offices, open offices, conference rooms, copy/break room, reception/waiting area, secure IT room, existing group restrooms and new shower. Our team paid special attention to the mechanical systems ensuring each office meets the strict sound masking needs of a law office.

4600 S. Syracuse

This “Class A” office building in the Denver Technology Center offers tenants a state-of-the-art fitness center, conference room, on-site security seven days a week, airy nine-foot ceilings and plentiful mountain and city views.

Since 2009, we have completed many tenant improvement projects in this 13-floor building. In 2014, we finished two floors for Transamerica, an insurance and investment firm and two floors for Black and Veatch, a global engineering, and consulting and construction company

4600 S Syracuse

Crescent Buildings 4, 5, 6, 7, 8

We are the engineer on record for this CB Richard Ellis managed, “Class A” Crescent office building complex within the Crescent Town Center. The center was created as a master-planned development comprised of five office buildings, a hotel and two first-class restaurants.

We provide on-going mechanical, electrical, and plumbing design for various tenant finish spaces. Some Tenants include: Equis, BTE Technologies, Beecher Carlson, and Weyerhaeuser. We also completed additional work including multi-building system assessments and reviews.

Suncor Refinery Business Center

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) sets standards for design and performance in five key areas of human and environmental health, including sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environment quality. From the beginning, we set our sights high and wanted to achieve LEED Silver Certification for this project. We partnered with the local firm, Intergroup Architects to make it happen.

This 75,000-square-foot facility is designed to accommodate approximately 275 employees and contractors required a robust system for ventilation. To accommodate this need, we designed an Under Floor Air Distribution (UFAD) System. This system was based on the use of the raised access floor to provide ASHRAE 62.1-2004 required minimum outdoor air ventilation rates to the building occupants and also to provide cooling airflow to the interior portions of the building.

We designed thermostatic zoning of the system in accordance with Suncor Corporate Standards. The under floor air head end mechanical equipment included three 30% outdoor air, air handlers (70% recirculation), each with direct expansion (DX) Cooling and indirect gas fired heating.

To increase the overall efficiency of the system and reduce connected compressor tonnage of the system, an energy recovery heat pipe was provided in each air handler. After the heat, the air was either cooled or heated (depending on operating state and conditions) with either a cooling coil or indirect fired gas heat exchanger and then is delivered to the under floor air distribution system.

The under-floor air distribution system interior to the building, included ductwork distribution under the raised access floor, round air floor devices, under-floor-fan-powered variable air volume terminal devices with and without electric reheat, differential pressure sensors, sheet metal air highways and/or sheet metal ductwork, and sheet metal air dams for security purposes and/or pressure control of specific areas.

Sherman Street Office

Architects across the Denver metro area want to incorporate Sustainable Design concepts into their projects. This three-story office building with one, approximately 24,927 square foot level of partially below-grade parking, was no exception. We focused on Sustainable Design every step of the way and achieved LEED certification.

Gateway Office Building

This three-story, multi-colored brick and metal mixed-use office and retail building has evolved into a popular hub for workers and shoppers in community-oriented Englewood.

The first floor became retail space with the second and third floor used as standard office space.

We provided engineering services to assist in attaining a LEED Gold Certified building. This support included the “Fundamental Commissioning” process and energy modeling using the Trane Trace program.

The mechanical system incorporated an under-floor (UFAD) air distribution system, high efficiency domestic hot water heaters. The electrical system used a photovoltaic panel system to assist with electrical load shedding for the building.

 

 

Grandview

Historic Olde Town Arvada welcomed this series of three buildings in 2008. The site now houses the popular Grandview Tavern and is surrounded by several other well-patronized pubs, eateries and specialty shops. The Grandview is just two blocks from the planned Gold Line light rail station.

We provided mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering design services for three buildings to core-shell only. The project was built out in two phases.

  • Building 1: a 2-story 13,192 square foot space planned for mixed use office/retail and restaurant.
  • Building 2: a 2-story 17,184 square foot space planned for mixed use office/retail.
  • Building 3: a single-story 2,900 square foot space planned for a future restaurant.
