Given its unique look, the design team for the Stage Pavilion at the proposed Grand Junction Park in Westfield, Ind., questioned how the facade would perform acoustically. However, due to the large number and small size of the structure's stone facets, direct computer modeling was felt to be unreliable. This video shows how IMEG Senior Acoustics and Vibration Engineer Jon Mooney conducted the testing using a 1/12th scale model consisting of 2,800 wood pieces.
The LEED Platinum renovation of the University of Illinois' 100-year-old Lincoln Hall illustrates how outdated yet iconic university buildings can attain high sustainability while preserving historical and architectural integrity. This video by IMEG Engineering Consultants provides a look at the engineering design of the renovation, led by Cannon Design, on the Champaign-Urbana, Ill., campus.
In this video by IMEG Engineering Consultants, Medical Equipment Planning Manager Steve Gulock and National Technology Director Jeff Carpenter discuss the benefits, which include maximized functionality, interoperability between systems, and ease of adaptability for the future.
Lincoln Pearce, a principal with IMEG Engineering Consultants, discusses the engineering design of the LEED Gold U.S. District Courthouse for the Northern District of Iowa in Cedar Rapids. The facility meets the GSA’s criteria for both energy efficiency and anti-terrorism security design.
IMEG provided engineering design and services for Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center's new Center for Advanced Care in Chicago.
