Government Experience

General Office Building - Secondary Complex

The project consisted of upgrading the mechanical and electrical infrastructure for the three-story 255,000 square foot building.  The HVAC system consisted of replacing and rezoning 175,000 square feet of office space with new VAV boxes to match the new floor layout.  The heating system central equipment was completely replaced, control valves were replaced in both the heating and chilled water systems and new air handlers were installed.  The HVAC system was also installed to eliminate the pressure problems that were occurring in the building.  Matrix responsibilities also included plumbing, fire protection, lighting, power, fire alarm, and data.

State of Michigan - Operations Center - Secondary Complex

The project consisted of converting an existing warehouse into a two-story 340,000 square foot office building.  HVAC systems consisted of VAV boxes with 12 air handlers utilizing central plant chilled water and high-pressure steam.  The building was designed with an 8,000 square foot computer room and provisions for future mainframe computer room of up to 24,000 square feet.  Matrix responsibilities included all HVAC, plumbing, fire protection, lighting, power, fire alarm, and raceway systems for data, security, and telecom systems.

USPFO Readiness Center

120,000 square foot project which completely retrofits the mechanical and electrical systems of an existing three-story state office building into a multi-military unit readiness center for the Michigan Air National Guard and Homeland Security.  HVAC systems consist of four VAV air handlers utilizing central chilled water from a salvaged centrifugal chiller and new high efficiency condensing boilers for heating and domestic hot water.  Six design alternates were included in the project to allow conformance to a strict budget.  Matrix responsibilities included all HVAC, plumbing, fire protection, lighting, power, fire alarm, technology, and raceway systems for data, security, telecom systems, and data wiring.

State of Michigan - Mason Hall

The Steven T Mason Building project consists of renovating an eight story building plus basement area that is approximately 253,000 square feet gross area.  The HVAC, plumbing, electrical, and fire protection design consisted of evaluating the existing systems to determine the condition of the associated equipment. The mechanical and electrical systems were replaced and upgraded both due to condition, age, and also to assist in achieving LEED silver.  Throughout the project Matrix helped with value engineering ideas to keep the project in budget.

Ionia Prison Energy Project

The project consisted of Mechanical and Electrical energy upgrades to the facilities including new lighting, plumbing upgrades, two new water boiler plants, two new high pressure steam boiler plants, equipment and controls upgrades.
