PROJECT DESCRIPTION

ACI was awarded the Design Assist for the Mechanical and Plumbing scopes for this 4-story, 102,000 SF academic building. ACI worked with VCU to maintain budget and guide design choices such as key subcontractors, equipment manufacturers and material specifications. This project consisted of installing a complete wet pipe sprinkler system, 560-Ton chilled water plant, and 1,000 GPM cooling towers.
