Century Engineering provided mechanical, electrical and plumbing design services for this 665,000 square foot, 13 story, mixed use building. The project has 3 levels of below grade parking and 45,000 sqft of retail area on the first two levels, with the remainder of the building consisting of 465 apartments and associated support/amenities areas, including several gathering rooms, a gym, and rooftop deck areas. The project is pursing LEED Gold certification and Century Engineering played a prominent role in this process as well. Century acted as the energy modeler, demonstrating an over 30% reduction in energy usage below baseline, thanks to an energy efficient envelope and the use of a high performing HVAC system.
