Salt River Project, a public power utility serving central Arizona, is renovating and expanding its Project Administration Building (PAB), a three-story building housing approximately 1,100 employees. To accommodate an additional 300 employees and to modernize the space, the building is undergoing a complete interior renovation—including all of its building systems—along with an 84,337-square-foot, five-story infill addition.
When completed, the PAB will encompass approximately 431,000 square feet of general office space, along with a domestic water pump area, a main distribution frame area, mechanical and electrical space, telecom rooms, restroom facilities, a front lobby, vertical and horizontal circulation space, a café/eatery, men’s and women’s locker rooms, break rooms, janitors’ closets, O&M closets, storage, mothers’ rooms, and future (flex) space.
As part of the project team, Fisher Engineering, Inc. (FEI) is responsible for fire/life safety code compliance and the design of fire protection systems, including sprinklers, standpipe, and fire pump. FEI is undertaking these efforts concurrently with the five-phased renovation of the building. Construction improvements will bring the building into compliance with the 2012 International Building Code® and its incorporated sub-categories. The project is targeting LEED Gold certification.
The project will be implemented in five phases, with construction spanning a three-year period.
