This project involved the complete renovation and expansion of the 125,000 square foot Marrs McLean building on the campus of Baylor University in Waco, Texas. This building houses the Baylor School of Education and includes computer and science labs, classrooms, lecture halls and offices. The design was completed in 2011 and construction began in 2012. The completed project was certified under the US Green Building Council’s LEED program.
The renovation included total replacement of the building’s mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems. The mechanical system utilizes chilled water and steam from the campus utility system. The HVAC system comprises multiple variable air volume chilled water air handling units serving primary duct systems with variable air volume terminal units and multiple constant volume fan coil units. Heating was through hot water piped to heating coils in the terminal units and fan coil units. The science labs were provided with modern, energy-efficient ventilation systems.
The electrical system, both power, and lighting were replaced with state of the art equipment and fixtures designed to comply with the current codes and energy efficiency standards.
