Edward Jones Bank – one of the largest customer base banks in the USA was planning to open a new branch in an existing commercial building in Kissimmee, Florida. The place was a 3,000 sq. Ft. white box space with existing utilities, and sanitary services provided by the base building.
We had the following challenges while designing this commercial bank project-
We faced 3 main challenges while designing this project-
- The client was looking for a low-cost design by utilizing the existing services and existing rooftop unit provided by the base building.
- Design the MEP system by running the services from the existing service location to the new space, keeping the other existing commercial stores operational.
- To fit the MEP system in a short ceiling space
While going over the architectural floor plans and the building’s electrical power plans, we also realized that the existing electrical and plumbing services were undersized considering the Edward Jones bank’s requirements.
Our team of design experts with vast experience in designing banks like Citizens bank found the best possible routing for the sanitary and domestic water piping without affecting the operations of other stores. Existing ductwork was utilized to save cost.
Domestic water and sewer load were calculated and satisfied within the available existing load in compliance with all local and energy conservation requirements. A compact ceiling-mounted water heater was provided to fit in a small space to avoid additional space requirements. Ductwork routing was designed to fit in a short ceiling space.
We saved the cost and time for the client by providing a quick, low-cost, and clash-free design within 2 weeks resulting in a quick construction of the Edward Jones bank.
