Gannett Fleming placed No. 48 on Consulting-Specifying Engineer’s 2018 MEP Giants list, advancing two spots from last year. The list includes the country’s top 100 mechanical, electrical, plumbing (MEP), and fire protection engineering firms.
“Gannett Fleming is making an impact on the community through MEP renovations and new construction projects,” said Brian Seip, PE, Gannett Fleming’s Facilities Business Line area manager for Pennsylvania. “In the past year, our team has enhanced recreational and wellness options for college students, expanded the maternity ward at a local hospital, and consolidated equipment and materials for an entire state agency into one centralized warehouse and distribution facility.”
Several successful MEP projects contributed to this ranking, including:
- Sollenberger Sports Center and Eisenhower Dining Hall Additions and Renovations – Gannett Fleming’s MEP, structural, and geotechnical teams partnered to design a combined cooling, heating, and power (CCHP) plant at Messiah College in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. Projected energy savings allowed the college to fund facility expansions, improving student and employee fitness.
- UPMC Pinnacle Hospital Renovation – Gannett Fleming is providing MEP design services as a subconsultant for renovations to UPMC Pinnacle’s maternity center in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The $23 million project encompasses 72,000 square feet of renovations and 57,000 square feet of new construction.
- Backup Traffic and Data Management Center and Central Inventory Facility Design Services – This first-of-its-kind facility located in Woodbridge, New Jersey, provides a centralized warehouse to store and distribute 4 million pieces of equipment and materials for the New Jersey Turnpike Authority. Key MEP design and construction components include the implementation of a fully redundant heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) system, a sanitary pump station, and lighting design.
- Mani Bhaumik Centennial Collaboratory Renovation – Located at UCLA, this renovation includes the creation of a lecture hall, private meeting rooms, and a fully equipped study lounge. The HVAC system features a multi-zone, triple-deck air-handling unit to service the entire 10,000-square-foot space in accordance with state energy efficiency requirements.
