Ross & Baruzzini engineered the mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection systems as well as the IT, Communications, and Security systems for four new buildings that are part of a mixed-use development in the Delmar “Loop” District of University City, north of the Washington University Danforth Campus. The four buildings total roughly 200,000sf and house approximately 450 students in a mixture of single, double, and triple apartment units. Two of the buildings located on Delmar Avenue house a mix of retail tenants at the street level, including a grocery store, cafe and diner. The project also included an underground parking structure under two of the buildings.

Project Results:

  • LEED Platinum Certification
  • 47% energy cost savings compared to ASHRAE 90.1-2007 baseline requirements
  • $162,000 annual energy cost savings compared to baseline
  • <10 year overall life cycle cost payback
  • Verified energy savings with actual measured data July 2015 – June 2016
