IMEG-designed lab moves on to national ASHRAE awards

Argonne National Laboratory’s new Materials Design Laboratory (MDL) has won an ASHRAE Region VI 2022 Excellence in Engineering Award and will now move on to compete at the society or national level.

 The MDL is a state-of-the-art laboratory and office facility that enables Argonne to maintain a leadership position in energy science research. The highly sustainable design led to its LEED Gold certification and compliance with the U.S. Department of Energy’s High Performance and Sustainable Buildings requirements. IMEG provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection, and technology engineering as well as architectural lighting and building performance analysis services for the lab.

The project also was previously awarded an ASHRAE Illinois Chapter 2021 Excellence in Engineering Award.
