MEP Associates provided Professional Engineering Design Services for Northlandâ€™s Dexter Library building renovations and Geothermal Bore field design.
The project included:
â€¢ Thirty (30) geothermal Bores extending 230 feet into the earth producing plenty of heating/cooling and no carbon dioxide.
â€¢ 14kW Photovoltaic Solar Array on the roof producing energy for the building.
â€¢ Forty-eight occupant light sensors saving energy and reducing electricity bills by turning lights off when not in use
â€¢ 500 SF of new window area including a skylight increasing natural day-lighting and reducing the need of artificial lighting
â€¢ Increased roof insulation increasing energy efficiency
â€¢ Low-flow plumbing fixtures reducing the burden on municipal water supply and waste water systems
In addition, MEP provided fundamental commissioning services to verify the buildingâ€™s energy related systems were installed, calibrated, and performed according to project requirements, basis of design, and construction documents for LEEDÂ® Gold certification for the remodeling of the Dexter Library.
