Infinity was engaged to provide mechanical and plumbing engineering services for the new LEED V4 Platinum-certified Grundfos Americas Headquarters office building located on their existing campus in Brookshire, Texas. The two-story, approximately 49,000 SF building will be comprised of conference rooms, restrooms, the main lobby, office space with open offices and a central plant.
The building's HVAC systems include magnetic bearing chillers, energy recovery air handling units, VAV terminal units, fan coil units, diffusers, and full building automation controls. The floor by floor cooling and heating systems integrated both underfloor air and a traditional overhead perimeter system.
The team coordinated plumbing designs with HVAC plans to include a 75,000 gallon underground chilled water storage tank and 100,000-gallon underground rainwater harvesting condensate collection tanks. The system also incorporated designs for fully-fit out restrooms, hot water piping, cold water pipings, sump pumps and storm drainage provided at industry standards.
The MEP team worked in-tandem with HAR-Con Mechanical, PGAL and Harvey to support the design and construction of this project. We look forward to continuing teaming as we progress on the corporate headquarters.
