- Designed layout of HVAC systems to enable the instructor to utilize the equipment as a teaching tool.
- Energy modeling used to assist the Architect in designing the building envelope to minimize energy consumption.
- Utilized high-efficiency suspended fluorescent lighting for classrooms with multiple switching for energy savings.
- Designed wet fire suppression system and compressed air for labs.
- New medium voltage electric service – 15kV.
- Electrical design included bollard and façade site lighting.
- Occupancy sensor lighting system.
