Their challenge

Our client needed a partner who could provide excellent engineering schematic designs and design assistance services for this two-tower apartment complex. These luxury rental units required designs that could accommodate one to three bedroom apartments, three bedroom townhomes, and a base structure with parking and amenities. In addition, our client wanted to pursue LEED certification, so they needed modern, high efficiency systems design.

Our solution

Meeting the challenge, Salas O’Brien provided schematic designs and design assistance  for the mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection systems for this 350,000-square-foot project. Our design included high efficiency fixtures and landscaping, a new waste water output, a minimized storm water runoff, and several electric car charging stations. We also specified the use of  renewable, recycled, and regionally-sourced building materials throughout the new spaces.
