63,000 SF new construction
Building Project Summary:
R.E. Dimond was proud to be selected to join the design team for Liberty Fund’s new headquarters in Carmel, Indiana, which centers around a library of special collections.
R.E. Dimond provided the MEP design for an energy-efficient geothermal system utilizing water source heat pumps and energy recovery units. Challenges included discovering an unanticipated quantity of on-site limestone when installing the geothermal well field, while an unusually high water table provided additional heat transfer through the underground system. This system uses an estimated 30% less energy than conventional HVAC systems. In addition, a dry chemical fire suppression system protects Liberty Fund’s historical archive of materials.
Electrical services included the design of LED lighting and control systems throughout the building and incorporating standby power and a complete fire alarm system.
Liberty Fund is a non-profit foundation that promotes a deeper understanding of liberty around the world.
