The Center for Hearing & Speech

Houston, TX

 

Infinity MEP was engaged to provide Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing engineering services for the new Center for Hearing and Speech. The Center for Hearing and Speech has been a resource for pediatric hearing loss for over 70 years, and this new location will make it possible to serve the community and offer health services and language education for years to come. 


Our MEP team worked closely with the architect and the end-users and was responsible for coordinating all MEP requirements and designs with them for this comprehensive project. The project design services were inclusive of core and shell build-out of the offices and classroom, multiple clinical exam rooms, an IT room, and site lighting.

The approximately 50,000 SF medical and educational building is conditioned with HVAC systems that incorporate ductwork, air devices, fans, and rooftop units. One design challenge was to ensure that all noise-sensitive and vibration-sensitive areas within the project scope were isolated from the MEP systems provided. 

The team was very honored to have the opportunity to work on a project that will make such a positive impact on the local Houston community.
