Peter Basso Associates’ MEP design engineers provided MEP design services for the complete renovation of Gage Products’ Building 821 in Ferndale, Michigan. The renovation included approximately 3,150 sq.ft. of new solvent/fuel lab space and 2,700 sq.ft. of office space.
Gage specializes in what is called a “closed-loop” recycling process for paint solvents it sells that are used by Chrysler, Ford, General Motors and other automobile manufacturers around the world. The project consolidated all of Gage’s existing laboratory and testing facilities into a single building and nearly doubled the existing scientific labs they have. The renovated facility also expanded the capabilities of the company’s in-house research and development.

Some of the most challenging areas confronting the designers of HVAC systems for K-12 schools are the high occupant load areas such as Cafeterias, Gymnasiums and Auditoriums. Code dictates a very high occupant load which must then be accounted for in the heating/cooling calculations, but that occupant load also translates into a code-prescribed outside air ventilation rate.
