Major Expansion Highlighted by MEP Engineering Services and Architectural Lighting Design

The 63,000 GSF Crisler Center renovation project at The University of Michigan was awared LEED Gold for its extensive energy efficient features, including MEP engineering and architectural lighting design services. 

Phase I of the renovation focused on making high-priority infrastructure improvements to the existing facility including electrical, mechanical and plumbing system improvements. Mechanical infrastructure upgrades included replacement of the arena air handling units, improved locker room ventilation, and the addition of an emergency smoke purge system in the concourse area.

Serving a capacity of over 12,700 building occupants necessitated water efficiency, and the overhaul of the arena’s plumbing system was crucial. New restrooms are equipped with waterless urinals, dual flush water closets with automatic flush valves, and automatic low-flow lavatory faucets. Kitchen areas feature low-flow sinks, while locker rooms highlight low-flow showerheads. Lighting also played a major role in both energy efficiency and enhancing the attendees experience.

Through the combined efforts of the team members, the project earned a LEED® Gold rating from the U.S. Green Building Council.
