AbstractThe team has been commissioned to design and engineer a 31,500 square foot mixed use innovation center in St. Petersburg, Florida. The completion of the project was split into two phases: the design/architecture of the building as a whole and the engineering of each individual system including the mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and structural systems. There is also a construction management portion, which includes a breakdown of each individual activity that would take place if the building were to actually be constructed. The final design includes a lobby, administration area, open offices, small meeting rooms, classrooms, an auditorium, clean fabrication, Hi-Bay fabrication, outdoor fabrication, secure storage, and seven client lofts. The mechanical system consists of a Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) system coupled with a Dedicated Outdoor Air System (DOAS). The plumbing system consists of sanitary waste, stormwater, hot and cold water, and plumbing fixtures. The electrical system consists of a 480/277V transformer, which supplies power to a service entrance switchboard and has a total demand of 189 kVA. The structural system consists of concrete pier foundations supporting slab on grade beams, a steel frame with lateral force resisting members, and a concrete metal deck with precast along the envelop.
