80 Year old facility
St. Anthony Falls Laboratory (SAFL) is an interdisciplinary fluid mechanics research and training facility of the College of Science and Engineering at the University of Minnesota. Their research focuses on environmental, energy and health challenges. The building is over 80 years old and while it has been added to, it has never been renovated.
We were selected to provide mechanical, electrical, lighting, fire alarm and fire protection engineering services for a complete building infrastructure renovation. Some of the more interesting and challenging aspects of this project include: a new chilled water system that utilizes river water for heat rejection, a variable refrigerant flow system with integral heat recovery for office space conditioning, automation of the wind tunnel radiant floor and air-stream heating and cooling systems, integration of a full coverage sprinkler system into the existing facility, complete replacement of the entire electrical distribution system.
