The Boston Consulting Group enlisted MCE to provide mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection, and lighting services for their renovated Minneapolis office.
The design intent was to have minimal visible light and utilize indirect light throughout the evenly spaced beams and use visible light only in high traffic hallways. This helped create on open office and airy atmosphere.
One of the challenges MCE was faced with was finding an HVAC solution to keep ceilings high. MCE coordinated with the owner and architect to push existing HVAC to the perimeter to keep the core high traffic areas open. The HVAC system that was pushed to the perimeter was transferred to round ductwork for a more aesthetically pleasing look.
