Congratulations to the following 2016 AIA Award Winners!
Sullivant Hall and Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum
(Acock Associates Architects - Merit Award, Columbus AIA)
Heapy Engineering designed the Mechanical-Electrical systems for the renovation of Sullivant Hall. The scope included renovations to existing library space, dance studios, classrooms, office space and finish upgrades to the auditorium. The completed project provides a new home for the Cartoon Research Library (CGA), formerly located in the Wexner Center, and renovated space for the Department of Dance and the College of Arts and Sciences.
Heapy Engineering's energy efficient design including heat recovery, temperature setback control and high efficiency lighting have helped restored this beautiful historic building for a modern use. The archive book storage and art gallery spaces are designed with very tight temperature and humidity control and are served by dedicated HVAC systems.
Northwest Branch Library of the Dayton Metro Library
(Ruetschle Architects - Honorable Mention, Dayton AIA)
At 30,000 SF, it is the largest branch in the system and is the first totally new library to be built in Montgomery County since 2000. The state-of-the-art building has more than replaced the aging and inefficient facilities previously housing three small branches, it features improved and expanded services.
Heapy Engineering performed a life cycle cost analysis to determine the most effective systems to utilize, allowing for an energy efficient and cost effective design approach. The project utilizes high-end rooftop heating and cooling units, condensing natural gas boilers, variable speed fans and pumps to accurately match the heating and cooling loads required and high end distributed lighting control system and LED lighting throughout the building.
Columbus Museum of Art
(DesignGroup - Honor Award, Columbus AIA)
Heapy Engineering designed the Mechanical-Electrical systems for the recently completed renovation and expansion of the Columbus Museum of Art. This phased project includes a 50,000 SF expansion and renovation of the existing 38,000 SF 1974 wing of the Museum. The project enhances the Museum and provides additional gallery and event space to exhibit more of the Museum's vast art collection as well as provide the community with a gorgeous space for events. New lighting comprised entirely of LED fixtures and providing mechanical equipment that allows the building to use much less energy are just a few of the notable energy efficient and sustainability features provided by the Heapy Engineering and DesignGroup project team. The entire design team utilized the REVIT family of products for design coordination and to easily identify interferences or clashes in this rather complex, phased (and stunning) museum upgrade.
