Bernhard TME provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection design services and construction administration for a new municipal courts facility in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The 65,000 square foot building houses office and administrative space and six courtrooms.
The scope for electrical design included a 480/277 Volt service entrance provided to the building from a utility transformer in the nearby utility courtyard. Steam and chilled water is provided to the facility from Veolia energy services. The incoming steam is controlled through pressure reducing valves then flows to two plate and frame heat exchangers which create hot water for heating water distribution.
The building’s HVAC design includes roof-mounted air handling units that provide outside air into and exhaust air from the entire building. Chilled beams heat and cool the majority of the building with fan coil units in high volume spaces where chilled beams are not efficient. The entire facility is equipped with direct digital controls that are tied to a building automation system in order to allow for energy efficient control.
