CASE STUDY

Modernizing City Of Commerce Public Library with MEP Excellence

PROJECT OVERVIEW

LOCATION:

City Of Commerce Public Library

CLIENT:

John G. Cataldo, A.I.A.

PROJECT TYPE:

Tenant Improvement (TI) – Public Library Transformation

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Pro Engineering Consulting spearheaded the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) engineering design for the Tenant Improvement (TI) project at the City Of Commerce Public Library. The renovation aimed to breathe new life into the library, considering approximately 7000 SF of transformation, encompassing various aspects such as architectural enhancements, updated finishes, lighting, and equipment.

EXISTING FEATURES

  • The existing library presented unique challenges, including coordination between ducting and lighting in exposed ceiling areas.
  • The design needed to minimize impact and downtime for the library, necessitating careful planning.
  • Coordination with numerous stakeholders, including city personnel, added an additional layer of complexity.

CHALLENGES FACED

COORDINATION BETWEEN DUCTING AND LIGHTING:

Challenge: Ensuring seamless coordination between ducting and lighting in exposed ceiling areas, requiring precision in design and implementation.

Solution: Our team executed meticulous coordination, integrating ducting and lighting seamlessly to maintain the aesthetic integrity of exposed ceiling areas.

DESIGN FOR MINIMAL IMPACT AND DOWNTIME:

Challenge: The design needed to consider the least impact and downtime for the functioning library during the renovation.

Solution: Pro Engineering Consulting developed a strategic design plan to minimize disruptions, allowing the library to operate with minimal impact.

MULTI-STAKEHOLDER COORDINATION:

Challenge: Coordinating with a diverse group of stakeholders, including city personnel, to ensure alignment with project goals and community expectations.

Solution: Our team implemented effective communication strategies, fostering collaboration among all stakeholders to achieve a unified vision for the library transformation.

SCOPE OF WORK

Electrical and Plumbing Design:

Addressing changes required in the electrical and plumbing layout to seamlessly integrate the new design while minimizing impact.

Ventilation System Design:

Optimizing the ventilation system design to enhance air quality and ensure efficient coordination with other elements.

Mechanical System Design:

Ensuring the seamless incorporation of mechanical systems, including ducting, while minimizing disruption to library operations.

Strategic Planning for Minimal Impact:

Developing a strategic plan to execute the design with the least impact and downtime for the functioning library.

CONCLUSION

Pro Engineering Consulting successfully executed the MEP design for the transformation of the City Of Commerce Public Library. Overcoming challenges such as coordination between ducting and lighting, minimizing impact on library operations, and managing multi-stakeholder collaboration, our team delivered a design that aligns with the library’s vision for a modernized and efficient space.

We value the collaboration with John G. Cataldo, A.I.A., and all stakeholders involved, and eagerly anticipate future opportunities for innovation.
