Heapy is currently providing Mechanical-Electrical design services for the major renovation/modernization to the James M. Ashley and Thomas W. L. Ashley U.S. Courthouse located at the north end of Toledo’s Civic Center Mall. The building currently occupies four floors and a basement totaling 91,676 SF of space.
After it’s completion, employees currently working in the 94-year-old courthouse will move into the new annex to begin a two-year renovation of the building.
The project includes upgrades to mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and life safety systems, elevator replacement, accessibility upgrades, tenant improvements, facade repairs, and roof replacement.
The project is on track for a USGBC LEED® certification goal of LEED Version 4 Gold. Heapy is providing all LEED® consulting services required to assist in obtaining the targeted certification level.
Planning for the New Normal
Plumbing Systems Re-Occupancy and Ongoing Operations
Your building may have been shut down these past many months due to WFH/COVID. Minimal use of your building’s water systems creates stagnant water in your plumbing system piping and equipment, which promotes the growth of Legionella and/or other biofilm-associated bacteria. This places your building occupants at risk when re-occupancy occurs. Now is the time to develop and implement a safe and effective Water Management Plan to protect your building occupants, maximizing their health and safety upon re-occupancy.
