NV5 provided MEP and fire protection engineering for the shell and core and fit up of Schneider Electric’s new 235,943 SF headquarters building. Space consisted of offices, open work stations, interior electronic dry labs, conference rooms, technology, document production space, conference center, training fitness center, storage, and other business-related spaces. Work included a cooking kitchen and cafeteria, 24×7 supplemental cooling for the server room with UPS and on-grade generator with enclosure, chilled beams, and a new building DDC control system.
The client emphasized energy efficiency in designing the building. The energy metropolis will save and reduce their energy consumption by 4% each year. The client is running their own controls, and everything the do as a company was utilized in construction. Ultimately, the facility serves as a showcase that represents exactly what Schneider is capable of producing from an energy perspective.
The building is targeting LEED certification, and features upgrades to a natural gas service and a chilled beam mechanical system. An energy model was developed to determine building envelope and HVAC systems options. NV5 designed this project using Revit software. We also provided fundamental commissioning services on this project.
