Project Highlights

The Wells Fargo Downtown East complex is a mixed-use development near the US Bank Stadium, redefining the East Town neighborhood. This development encompassed the Wells Fargo Downtown East Campus which includes 1.2 Million square feet of office space in two 17-story towers.

Michaud Cooley Erickson (MCE) provided design-assist MEP engineering services for this project through a design development level, assisting Wells Fargo in obtaining a LEED Platinum certification. Both buildings are fully lit with LED lighting and control systems, daylight harvesting and systemic energy conservation measures with a two-story mechanical penthouse. Building automation systems and high-efficiency HVAC equipment closely monitor energy use. Water saving plumbing fixtures and control devices reduce water intake throughout the facility. The energy performance of this building is 52% better than the energy code in place at the time of the design.
