Nassau Community College Student Services Center
LiRo provided full architectural and engineering services for a 30,000 sf renovation to Nassau County Community College's Student Services Center. The design repurposed an existing space below a public plaza to provide a consolidated and expanded "One-stop" Student Services Center. The mechanical design featured two new semicustom air handling units, new VAV reheat and perimeter heating systems, and new chilled water and hot water pumps. Key design challenges included sharing HVAC systems with adjacent existing spaces, interfacing with the central campus hydronic systems, and coordinating exposed ductwork with other services in a tight ceiling. In addition to performing the engineering design work, LiRo performed construction administration services. The project was opened to the public in the summer of 2016.
