EP Completes MEP Design on Bronx Project’s Second Phase
EP Engineering has completed the MEP design of two high-rise residential buildings which will be a part of phase two for The Peninsula, a mixed-use project rising on the site of the former Spofford Juvenile Detention Center in the Bronx. The firm provided mechanical, electrical and plumbing design for Building 2A and 2B, which will be 13 stories and 16 stories tall, respectively.
EP was also able to ensure compliance with Enterprise Green Communities Criteria and LEED Silver requirements, by providing variable refrigerant flow heat pump systems, and developing a separate cogeneration system for each building to utilize waste heat from a microturbine for domestic hot water production.
“These two high rises will not only adhere to meet Enterprise Green Communities Criteria and LEED Silver requirements, but the site will also encompass the redevelopment’s goal of transforming the community’s character,” said Chris Burgess, partner, EP Engineering.
