Historic - special projects
The Landmark Lowe’s Jersey Theatre
In association with HMR Architects, M&E Engineers performed engineering design for this dramatic 53,000 square foot renovation project.
Designed in conjunction with NJ Smart Start energy program and qualified for energy rebates.
Project included energy modeling, new thermal ice storage system, and integration of the new system with existing infrastructure.
Design challenges included equipment entrance and access to the lower levels of the building while keeping the historic structure intact.
The Stickley House Museum
Museum collection includes numerous wood, leather, and fabric objects that require humidity control.
M&E designed a temperature & humidity control system that adjusts the humidity level according to the outside temperature.
M&E designed a Viking ‘Firecycle’ system, a specialized pre-action system that cycles the system in response to the fire, resulting in a reduction of up to 90% of water discharged.
The piping was carefully concealed in most areas and designed to blend-in with the logs where exposed.
Modern Arc House
Engineering services for modern private residence in central New Jersey.
The site is ringed by mature trees but contains an open clearing in its center.
The 90 degree arc was oriented to take advantage of the sun and views.
Liberty State Park Terminal
Blue Comet Auditorium
Renovation of Blue Comet Auditorium in the CCRNJ Terminal Building.
Required new utilities that would work both as an initial isolated use, and integrate with future central plant systems.
New boilers, chillers, power and sprinkler systems were added and kept concealed.
The stained glass ceiling was artificially lit with programmable controlled lights, and the historic gas chandeliers were replicated using standard light fixture components.
