Our client needed an engineering partner for a new corporate building for American College of Chest Physicians. The project design included office space, an educational and simulation training center, and an additional shell and core space that the college could use for future build-out. Our client also wanted to pursue LEED certification.
Salas O’Brien rose to the challenge and created a design plan to meet our client’s goals for the new, mixed-use corporate building. Our design included two new stories comprising 55,000 square feet, with 33,000 square feet allotted to be office space and 15,000 square feet designated as training facilities featuring six ICU simulation training rooms, six breakout seminar rooms, and a large auditorium. Finally, we designed a 10,000-square-foot shell and core space for the college to use for future build-out. Our team then provided full mechanical, electrical, plumbing, life safety, fire protection, and telecommunications design services for the building, including energy modeling. As our client desired to achieve LEED Silver certification, our team focused on energy efficiency and optimization of system performance in the new space.
Thanks to our engineering and consulting services, installation all went according to plan, and the client successfully achieved their goals for the project. The new ACCP headquarters and innovation center is operating safely and efficiently, with capacity to expand in the future.
