HVAC & PLUMBING SERVICES PROJECT SCOPE OF WORK
Three new 4-level buildings were constructed. These buildings will be used for research and development lab spaces as well as offices, totaling 480,000 SF. Also required were two new parking garages and a link to connect the new facility to an existing one. The facility would utilize one central utility plant located in one of the parking garages. Extensive piping was needed to loop the chilled and heating water piping throughout the new facility. To complete the commercial heating and cooling system three - 750 ton chillers, two - 6,695,000 BTU boilers, 26 AHU's (totaling 846,400 CFM), 7,000 feet of baseboard radiation heat, a 3-cell cooling tower and 35 pumps had to be installed. The plumbing systems required extensive underground piping for the buildings and parking garages.
Avaya is a global leader in communication systems, applications and services that design, build, deploy, and manage networks for enterprises.
To continue their commitment to Denver and maintain their leadership in this ever growing technological industry, Avaya needed an aggressive strategy. A new research and development facility was planned to provide: a state-of-the-art workplace for their associates, a grand showcase for their customers and a facility allowing for enormous growth.
MECHANICAL CONSTRUCTION SOLUTIONS
The structure of the garage was not designed to support the mechanical equipment and piping. Trautman & Shreve's engineers designed and strategically located the piping and HVAC equipment to accommodate all requirements. The weight of the equipment and the piping was supported by combining the parking garage pre-stress structure and specially designed steel support structure. The second support structure had to be built around and through the existing pre-stress columns and shear walls. This effort required extensive design, coordination and welding capabilities provided by Trautman & Shreve's mechanical construction services experts.
