New Education Building
IMEG provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection engineering design services for the new 88,000-sf Levine III, which houses the Georgia Tucker Fine Arts Hall, health careers and science labs, and classrooms.
IMEG’s design services included the modification of the facility’s chilled water plant to incorporate ice thermal storage. This system allows the owner to take advantage of lower-cost, off-peak utility rates during the evening and early morning to create ice, store it, and then deliver the stored energy to the building during the day to augment or offset chiller cooling.
In addition to the chilled water plant modification, IMEG also provided systems design for extending hot water from existing water boilers, new AHUs, fire dampers, and plumbing.
Central Piedmont’s Levine III building was recognized as an educational project that demonstrates sustainable leadership in facility design, construction, operations, and student/community engagement.
The facility’s 2,300 square-foot fine arts hall is named in memory of Georgia Tucker. The Georgia Tucker Fine Arts Hall is a two-story facility with views of the campus lake.
