Serving over 30,000 travelers a day

An 11,000-ton chiller plant and its 240 million BTU per hour, 150-PSI steam plant and the delivery of those services to more than 3 million square feet of conditioned space present engineering challenges unique to facilities of this scale and magnitude. Since 2000, MCE became a Continuing Consultant at the MSP MAC, providing a direct working relationship alongside architects and civil engineers on all MAC facility projects.

Besides conventional design work, MCE serves the MAC in ways that are unique among consulting engineers, providing system surveys and record documents, performance analysis and troubleshooting, operations and maintenance advice and assistance in administering many of their on-going maintenance contracts. Owner training, performance analysis and system calibration are part of any good commissioning program, but MCE’s operating engineers and master electricians go far beyond convention by acting as an expert extension of the MAC Facilities Department.
