Mechanical systems include: two 130 ton Chillers, Rooftop Air Handlers, Energy Recovery Air Handlers (Labs), Boiler, Domestic Water Booster Pump, Domestic Hot Water Heater, and Fire Protection (dry, wet, and clean agent) systems.


Regional Operations Intelligence Center

Ewing, New Jersey

In order to improve the services provided by the New Jersey State Police Emergency Operations Center during times of emergency, a 12,960 sq ft expansion to the second floor was added for a new 911 Statewide Call Center, Regional Operations Intelligence Center, and office area.

M&E worked hand in hand with Staikos Associates Architects. Scope of work included UPS Systems, Grounding of Motorola Radio Systems (R56), Geothermal Heat Pump Systems, and Fire Protection and Detection Systems. Geothermal modeling and analysis were also performed.


Verizon Chiller Plants
