The City Center, formally known as the Sibley’s Building sat vacant for many years. A developer engaged IPD in 2014 to perform a building conditions survey/study of the MEP, FP and Structural systems for the purposes of budgeting upgrades to the building that would be necessary to redevelop the building.
As a result of the study, IPD was engaged to design infrastructure upgrades to the building’s central systems, including new cooling towers, boilers, loop water pumps, controls, make-up air (energy recovery) unit, snow melt system, electric service, electrical distribution, gang toilet rooms and more. Additionally, IPD designed upgrades to the building’s basement parking garage including new lighting, ventilation system, fire alarm and transformer vault. IPD recently finished MEP and Structural design for the 30,000+sf Red House Arts Center on the ground floor, which will connect to the building’s planned infrastructure upgrades.
