Glumac provided full-service, LEED enhanced commissioning for this design-build, new construction project. The facility includes a two-story, 121,000 sf Multi-Service Ambulatory Care Center (MACC), a crafts building (5,500 sf) and a material management and central plant building (15,630 sf).
Glumac’s role in commissioning this project extends from the scoping phase through post-occupancy operations and maintenance review. Glumac was involved with the owner throughout the entire construction process. This was a great advantage to the owner because Glumac served as an ally with a strong understanding of the owner’s project goals and intents.
The documents we provide to design-build contractors support the owner, allow less leeway to contractors and ensure the project meets both owner and LEED requirements. The design of this project includes a curtain wall system that allows natural daylight to lessen energy usage and supports LEED certification.
Additionally, heat gain is controlled by a louver system as part of the architectural design. The entire building will be constructed in compliance with OSHPD-3 requirements within a space promoting physical wellness. The mechanical equipment includes four air-handler units and two exhaust fans which are located on the roof and concealed by a perforated mechanical screen with sunshades.
