University of Massachusetts Fine Arts Center Lobby Addition, Amherst, Mass.
Architectural Engineers provided MEP/FP engineering services for the addition of a significant architectural glass enclosed lobby area at the entrance to the theater and gallery space. The lobby’s HVAC system was designed to accommodate 500 people. The building included cast glass that was equipped with thermistors to direct conditioned air against glass preventing condensation, hydronic radiant heating embedded in the topping slab, and fiber optic lighting.
