Brown-Heatly Building 18-19 DM Upgrades (Phase 1)



MEP Engineering, Inc. served as the Prime Consultant on this TFC 18-19DM project to implement deferred maintenance upgrades at the Brown-Heatly State Office Building, now home to the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS).  The project scope included the development of a multidiscipline facility assessment report to identify existing building maintenance deficiencies and prioritize recommendations and corrective actions.

Major scope of work items for the project design included replacement of 27 central-station air handling units, 179 VAV air terminals across four floors, life safety control dampers throughout the building, and BAS controls upgrades for improved indoor air quality.  Interior architectural renovations were also designed to bring the main entrance vertical openings in compliance with current life safety codes.  Finally, this project also included minor deferred maintenance items at the adjacent Robert D. Moreton Building (RDM) and DSHS Services Building (DHSB).
