The National Ice Laboratory is responsible for the safe storage and curation of ice cores collected primarily by National Science Foundation sponsored projects. MDP provided mechanical, electrical, and plumbing design for the 8,000 sq. ft. retrofit of this expansive walk-in freezer storage facility. The main archive maintains a constant temperature of -36°C. A second room for examination of ice cores is held at -25°C and is contiguous with the archive area. There is also a Class-100 HEPA-filtered, cold clean-room and space outside for material fabrication, storage, changing areas, and offices.
MDP’s scope on this project includes modifications to existing electrical and lighting systems, reconfiguration of locker rooms, and replacement of existing HVAC system. Plumbing design is for existing lap pool, plus a new recreation pool with current channel and play features, as well as additions to the pool mechanical and electrical rooms and natatorium. Design for the new space includes a warming kitchen to accommodate the large multipurpose room, along with new locker rooms and restrooms to accommodate the variety of fitness areas.
MDP provided mechanical and plumbing design services for a new CDOT facility containing 2 indoor wash bays and 10 vehicle storage bays. Design for the main building included heating, ventilation, and plumbing systems throughout, as well as cooling for two office areas within the building. Design was also provided for an attached sand shed, ten-tank magnesium chloride pad with secondary containment structure, and a manual fresh air/exhaust switch allowing CDOT employees to proactively address CO2 buildup.
