R&W Engineering completed this project for Maxim. It was a two-part project that included both a new office building and a major remodel of the existing computer labs, clean room, and support areas. R&W provided mechanical, electrical, and data/fire alarm design. In Phase I, R&W designed HVAC, plumbing, power, lighting, data, and fire alarm systems for the 93,000 square foot, 3-story office building. The building was designed with an open floor plan that included multiple conference rooms, a 3-story lobby, and a cafeteria with a full kitchen. The HVAC system used large VAV rooftop units serving fan powered VAV boxes for individual zone controls. For the lighting, energy efficient suspended direct-indirect fixtures were chosen and implemented.
Once completed, the building received a LEED Silver rating. In support of the LEED effort, R&W designed eight electric vehicle charging stations, low flow plumbing fixtures, efficient site lighting that did not trespass to adjacent properties, and efficient HVAC systems.
Phase 2 was an approximately 20,000 square foot major remodel of the existing computer labs, clean room, and support areas. This phase was a conversion of existing office spaces into test and design lab spaces, including a 5,000 square foot clean room test lab. R&W provided HVAC, plumbing, power, data, and fire alarm design for all computer labs, electronic workshops, and supporting office areas.
The design also included extensive process piping systems for compressed air, nitrogen, RO/DI water, and other services. The lighting was replaced to match the lighting of the new office building.
