PBA Provides Lighting Design / MEP Design Services for MSU

PBA provided mechanical, electrical and lighting design services for Michigan State University’s Wilson Hall Creative Commons. 

Renovations of the center core of Wilson Hall to create a Creative Commons space nicknamed "The Hive" was a collaborative effort of MSU's Residential and Hospitality Services, the College of Engineering, College of Communication Arts and Sciences, and the Broad College of Business. The new tech-centric space is meant to inspire students to pursue their entrepreneurial passions, utilizing the many resources the State of Michigan has to offer students that are about to enter the workforce.

The Hive features high-performance linear LED lighting both recessed and direct throughout, which provided an efficient, longlasting luminaire for the collaborative space.  Dimmable LED track lighting in select locations allows for illumination down to 15%. PBA also provided design services for LED emergency lighting.

The project also included new mechanical, electrical systems, demolition of existing interior walls, fire protection for the center section of the building, A/V technology, collaboration areas and meeting locations, the replacement of the existing kitchen drainage piping and the relocation of the existing Sparty’s Store.
