Allied Engineering was hired by the Architect to provide mechanical, electrical (including lighting design), plumbing, and fire protection design services for this modern, two-story office building. The building has an abundance of natural lighting, flexible meeting spaces of all sizes, open offices on the second floor, kitchen and dining spaces, and a fitness area with lockers and showers.
The building was located on the site to take advantage of the nature around the building as well as solar orientation. The high-performance building was designed to exceed the current energy codes by 30% and has a photovoltaic array on the roof to provide 35-40% of the electricity needed to power the building’s electrical and mechanical systems.
The project has received the 2018 AIA Maine Citation Award and the 2018 AIA Maine People’s Choice Award.
