Trautman Associates is providing mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection engineering as well as site/civil design for the redevelopment of the former Buffalo Police Precinct on 74 Franklin St.
The four-story, 130,000+ SF building will be turned into an apartment complex with interior parking lots. Over 100 apartments will be built inside. Units will include studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments.
We provided the client with permit drawings and designed individual VRF split systems for each HVAC unit. The condensers were roof mounted and the indoor units were wall mounted. A roof mounted ERV was designed to distribute air into the corridors and exhausted air from the unit bathrooms and kitchens.
Parking garages were designed to meet the proper ventilation rates for both CO and NO2 monitoring.
