ProjectsHere is a quick glance at some of our projects.
Albertsons Market Street
As their flagship store, the Market Street store in Meridian, Idaho, is the largest Albertsons store ever built. The 110,000 square foot store is designed to their premium store concept and is 40,000 square feet larger than the similar Broadway store. Petersen Staggs Architects retained Engineering Consultants to design the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems for this next-generation grocery store. Albertsons was one of our first customers back in 1976, and we are currently working on other innovative stores, including mixed-use properties and automated micro-fulfillment centers.
The U.S. Postal Service Processing and Distribution Center and Vehicle Maintenance Facility in Portland, Oregon, is an 818,000 square foot facility adjacent to the Portland International Airport. Design-build contractor The Korte Company contracted Engineering Consultants to provide construction documents for electrical distribution, power, lighting, fire alarm, and network services. The $92.5 million project stayed on time and budget, despite an aggressive 18-month schedule and extremely foul weather conditions. We have assisted Korte with remodel projects at 20 other USPS facilities, including Boise, Houston, Miami, New Orleans, and Phoenix.
Haymakers at the Fields
Located in Champaign, Illinois, Haymakers at the Fields is a 5,000 square-foot convenience store with a gas station and carwash. The store was designed as the “future of convenience stores” and constructed in 10 months for the employee-owned, family-run grocery store operator, Niemann Foods. Design-build contractor DBS Group brought Engineering Consultants on board for the $1.2 million project as the engineering design firm responsible for the mechanical, electrical, plumbing, refrigeration, and fire alarm systems. Engineering Consultants has also designed Haymakers stores in Macon, Missouri; Pittsfield, Illinois; and Macomb, Illinois.
St. Luke’s 27th Street Development
The St. Luke’s 27th Street Development project includes a 223,704 square-foot medical center and a 170,050 square-foot parking garage. The medical center comprises a three-story hospital wing, and a four-story medical office building/clinic wing. Engineering Consultants was retained by St. Luke’s health system to provide BIM coordination between the architects, engineers, and contractors for the medical center. Our efforts resulted in a coordinated three-dimensional model between the piping (hydronic, steam, water, wastewater, medical gas, and vent), HVAC equipment and ductwork, electrical conduit, and communications cabling. The $11.25 million medical center is currently under construction.
Identity Moscow Student Living
Located near downtown Moscow and the University of Idaho campus, Identity provides modern living solutions for young professionals and students. Living options include 1 to 5 bedroom apartments and townhomes. Residents enjoy the state-of-the-art fitness center, computer labs, outdoor resident courtyards, and rooftop decks with stunning views. Engineering Consultants utilized our extensive multifamily housing experience to provide cost-effective design solutions for Identity’s six buildings and over 160,000 square feet of living and support spaces. Engineering Consultants also provided engineering services for the Identity Boise project located near the Boise State University campus.
Valley Regional Transit Bus Maintenance Facility
This project includes ventilation and electrical safety upgrades for the existing Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) environment. This project also included a new state-of-the-art CNG leak detection and alarm system. Our design approach prioritized comfort for the building’s occupants. Radiant tube heaters were incorporated to provide sustained heat for the mechanics as overhead doors are opened and closed throughout the workday. Engineering Consultants was pleased to provide safety and comfort solutions to improve the Valley Regional Transit staff’s daily lives.
