Matrix evaluated the physical condition of the sanitary, vent and domestic water piping for eight existing bathrooms and surrounding areas to bring them up to code. Matrix evaluated the plumbing system and determined the best way to modify the piping while maintaining part of the bathrooms in operation. A design was provided to replace the existing domestic water, vent and sanitary piping from the basement up to the penthouse through the rest of the building while also changing the plumbing fixtures.
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 condition age and also to assist in achieving LEED silver. The design was performed in Revit with clash detection performed and adjusted as needed.
