ABOUT THIS PROJECT
This three-story, 39,000 SF administration building serves as the hub of a power plant.
The first floor houses employee facilities including locker rooms and showers for over 120 employees, an exercise room, a large cafeteria with vending and dining facilities, large meeting/training room, and a records room. The second floor includes individual offices around the perimeter, several open work stations in the interior open space, a large records room, several meeting rooms, and auxiliary spaces. The third floor includes executive offices, conference rooms, and auxiliary administrative spaces.
The exterior of the building features glass and metal panels to provide a modern appearance. The interior finishes include very durable surfaces such as resinous flooring, tiles, and other high-grade finishes that can withstand industrial foot traffic and still maintain the high-level finish.
Luckett & Farley designed the HVAC system using a chilled beam system. This provides a very tightly controlled temperature and humidity environment using a very sophisticated air distribution system. The system provides a high-level of energy efficiency using water (hot and cold) for distributing energy with minimal energy losses. The system also reduces the air distribution noise to a negligible level, creating a very quiet environment.
