UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO BOULDER CAMPUS
SSR provided MEP engineering design and technology consulting services to renovate the Old Health Center building on the University of Arkansas Campus. The 20,000 SF renovation, and 19,000 SF addition, was necessary to covert the building into the new School of Nursing and Speech and Hearing Clinic. SSR submitted several different mechanical design options for the facility, including geothermal, VAV, and variable refrigerant flow (VRF). The University elected to pursue the VRF system for this project. Our scope of work also included energy modeling of the building to set a base line for performance measurements in the future.
SSR provided MEP engineering design services for several buildings on the University of Colorado Boulder campus. The preliminary design of a new heating and cooling system was installed at the Engineering Center Office Tower. The Benson Earth Sciences building was recently renovated to the specifications of the new faculty research and grants needs, including any new equipment. The Speech Language and Hearing Services HVAC system was also recently renovated.
TEXAS TECH UNIVERSITY HEALTH SCIENCES CENTER LUBBOCK, TX The Clinical Tower Research Center at the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center unifies the existing buildings and creates a focal point for the campus. The project consisted of approximately 165,000 SF of construction and 25,000 SF of renovated space in the existing Health Sciences Center.
ST. LOUIS UNIVERSITY EDWARD A. DOISY RESEARCH CENTER ST. LOUIS, MO
This modern glass and steel building houses 80 highly secure, state-of-the-art research labs, and is central to the Saint Louis Medical Center. Researchers in five areas including cancer and molecular biology, liver and cardiovascular disease, neurosciences, and aging and vaccine development, conduct their work in an open floor plan allowing for collaboration. The building lies at the eastern edge of the Center of Research Technology and Entrepreneurial Exchange (CORTEX), a life sciences industry corridor. SSR provided commissioning services for this new research facility.
COLLEGE OF EDUCATION MURFREESBORO, TN This 82,500 SF building serves as the home of the College of Education and Behavioral Sciences at Middle Tennessee State University. The completion of this building marks the first time the College has been united under one roof since its founding in 1911. The facility includes new classrooms, class labs, auditoriums, and administrative facilities. SSR was responsible for mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection design. The project design was completed in accordance with the requirements of the 2012 State of Tennessee Sustainable Design Guidelines, in lieu of LEEDÂŽ or other green building rating system. These Sustainable Design Guidelines were co-authored by SSR for use on every new construction and renovation project for state-owned facilities. The guidelines are based largely on the principals and requirements of LEED.
