New Roadway Network and Campus-Wide Utility Corridor
As prime consultant, our scope of work included the design of a new roadway network to improve overall traffic circulation and pedestrian connections and a campus-wide utility corridor—including hot and chilled water piping, domestic and fire protection piping, medium voltage electric, telecommunications, sanitary and gas—to improve utility services to existing and future buildings.
We performed a study of campus utilities focused on reconciling conditions, capacity, and green initiatives for each system as specifically related to implementing the campus master plan. As a result, we found several new efficiencies and potential green initiatives, particularly regarding how the central plant relates to each building connection.
We also seamlessly coordinated building loads with the plant operations and maintained high building Delta T’s, using seawater for free condenser water cooling. The project also considered maintainability and reliability through redundant loop-configured systems.
