Their challenge

Our client needed a partner to provide engineering design services and LEED consulting for this two-structure, mixed-use project. The design needed to include 270 luxury apartment homes, 30,000 square feet of retail space, and amenities. The plan included a 28,365-square-foot, four-story north tower with above-ground-floor retail space and a south tower with 20 stories of residential space and a parking garage. In addition, our client planned to pursue LEED certification for this project.

Our solution

Salas O’Brien was engaged to provide engineering design  and LEED consulting for the new project. Our team delivered full plan and spec designs for the mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection systems. To meet our client’s sustainability and environmental requirements, our design included special features such as a roof garden, storm-water collection, and high efficiency building systems. We also supported engineering design for a glass and steel bridge to connect the two towers, as well as a 428-space parking garage.
