For its downtown Kansas City, Missouri Crossroads District retail bank location, Missouri Bank desired to develop an open, airy environment that projects an openness and friendly connection to its neighbors. To help retain the history and character of the neighborhood, Missouri Bank preferred to make use of an existing one-story automotive shop that had been unused for some time. In addition, Missouri Bank desired to use “green” practices in developing the building and if possible, reach a LEED® gold rating. Sys-tek provided mechanical, electrical, and plumbing design services for this project. sys-tek evaluated HVAC system alternatives based on operating cost, and installed cost reliability. In addition, we obtained all necessary site records for utilities, to assist in determining utility requirements for power, sewer, storm and natural gas. The final HVAC design solution utilized an underground cooling loop with 22 wells each at least 225’ deep for circulating cooling water. This approach is estimated to reduce HVAC energy consumption by 60% and have a payback of two to three years. Because the design has an open ceiling, all MEP ductwork, sprinklers, piping, and overhead electrical locations were coordinated closely with the Architect. sys-tek also worked closely with a lighting consultant retained by the Architect to assure that accurate design documents were produced. Sys-tek coordinated closely with the design team to establish budgets, identify methods of installation as well as determining utility requirements and connections. We prepared a comprehensive building MEP development plan that clearly illustrated MEP requirements for this facility. Sys-tek is also serving as the LEED® Commissioning Consultant, to certify energy use and explore renewable energy sources. In this function, we provided continuous LEED® Certification support to the Design/Construction team to insure that reasonably obtainable LEED® points were maximized.
