Incorporated LEED & WELL Initiatives

Our team provided the MEP engineering services for the original 1 million square foot high rise tower housing this project in the year 2000. Furthermore, the Tech Agile project offered a fresh opportunity to explore the latest high value, sustainable designs. Such design innovations included a new lighting control system that employed occupancy sensor, daylight control, and advanced time scheduling of lighting zones.

The project also included a smart diffuser system that created many more HVAC zones than a typical office space to greatly improve space temperature control while saving over $250,000 from the building standard VAV box design. New perimeter diffusers that harvest ambient light to power electronics that automatically change the airflow direction to provide optimal comfort were also included in the design. We were integral in collaborating with the architect and owner to select various LEED and WELL initiatives to further optimize the overall wellbeing of the space while further pushing the envelope of sustainability and resiliency with Ameriprise Financial. Our healthy building initiative was also executed to focus on pathogen related mitigation strategies such as increased ventilation, better filtration, and an evaluation of various supplemental systems such as Bi-Polar Ionization (BPI).
