Project Scope:

The Health Care REIT acquired the former headquarters of the Dana Corporation in Toledo sited on 166 acres of mature landscape and gently rolling terrain.  The original 1970’s era structure has been transformed into a modern state-of-the-art facility designed to embody the goals of the Corporation by creating a comfortable workplace conductive to creative thinking and collaboration.

This building is only one of nine LEED Platinum Buildings, out of 212 LEED Certified buildings in the state.  The colonial façade complete with Doric columns, welcome visitors to the energy-saving complex.   The building’s energy consumption is monitored and controlled through real-time metering and automatic controls.  Combined, these features greatly reduce the overall energy, water, and electricity consumption – in addition to a 78% reduction of construction waste and a 100% reduction of potable water for irrigation. IPS was the mechanical contractor that performed all mechanical system upgrades including HVAC, piping, boiler work and all plumbing.

Challenges:

IPS accommodated the owner’s aggressive time line to have new offices fully functional by coordinating with other contractors with minimal interruptions to the daily operations for staff.

Project Scope:

IPS was contracted by BGSU for this Central Heat Plant to Shatzel Hall Tunnel Restoration project. This included the replacement of the deteriorated Heat Plant Tunnel tunnel top below Thurstin Street and tunnel vault wall, pipe anchoring, and top where the secondary backup steam line enters the tunnel as it turns to the east under the parking lot heading towards Shatzel Hall, replacement of several deteriorated pipe rack supports in various locations throughout the entire tunnel, removal and replacement of up to five tunnel top expansion joints, insulating the pumped and high pressure condensate lines, plus installation of new LED lights and tunnel ventilation kiosks, etc. The utilities were contained within the tunnel system. The high pressure steam and the condensate lines were active during the construction of the tunnel renovation. IPS protected the piping located under Thurstin Ave during the replacement of the tunnel top and the walls in this area when the tunnel top was removed. IPS secured this area from accidental entry with proper protection (i.e. fencing, barricades, and signage) for the duration of the tunnel top replacement.

Challenges:

IPS dealt with the water infiltration and uninsulated piping issues before making any repairs to the tunnel structures. IPS replaced the section of the Heating Plant Tunnel for the portion under Thurstin Street. This tunnel top replacement required the removal of the roadway surface and the subbase located over the tunnel. This work was planned to be done for half of the tunnel at time to limit the disruption to traffic flow and locations and waterproofing to prevent future water infiltration from occurring.
