MEP Engineering Design and Architectural Lighting for Modern NMU Classroom Building

Peter Basso Associates provided MEP design services and architectural lighting design for the NMU Jamrich Hall - a modern classroom building, that includes five large lecture halls, where more than 40 percent of university classes are held. The newly LEED Certified Jamrich Hall also houses academic department offices for sociology, social work and anthropology, the English department, the math and computer science department, and the criminal justice department.

A unique MEP engineering facet of the project includes the cross connection of Jamrich Hall with the new Science and Learning Resource Center chilled water plants to create a distributed primary-secondary chilled water system. The project includes electric centrifugal and steam absorption chillers, and new below ground chilled water piping routed through an existing campus, coordinating with existing utilities.
