DUTCH KILLS OFFICE BUILDING
A Class A 43,000 SF ground-up commercial office building designed to accommodate a variety of uses, from film production to events spaces. Building’s envelope and mechanical systems were designed to meet NYSERDA commercial building program performance requirements of 15% better than energy code.
To allow for a degree of flexibility in building uses, the project’s heating and cooling source was conceived as a water loop consisting of a 90-ton cooling tower, variable speed pumps and high efficiency condensing boilers. Each floor/space was provided with high efficiency water-source heat pumps. The building was envisioned as ‘cogen-ready’ and was designed with a single master meter to allow future behind the meter tie-in. Each floor was provided with 3-phase 400 amp power.
MEP design and NYSERDA rebate assistance. Full MEP/FP design, special and progress inspections.
