Abstract

This project is an entry to the 2016 Architectural Engineering Institute Student Design Competition in the Mechanical category. The challenge was to design the mechanical systems for a 17-story mixed-use building at 888 Boylston Street, in Boston, Massachusetts. The team provided a comprehensive design of the HVAC, plumbing, fire protection, resiliency, lighting, and energy-generation systems, including cogeneration and active chilled beams. The design process involved calculations and simulations to optimize the energy and water consumption of each system, each of which was modeled and evaluated, and then integrated with the Bubbledeck structural system that a partner team designed.
