Phoenix Convention Center, Phase I & II

public project 1

publickworks-North-building-(Phase-I)-during-construction.The Phoenix Convention Center Renovation and Expansion was an immense two-phase project encompassing over 2.1 million square feet of new convention spaces, meeting rooms, ballrooms, offices, and kitchens.  The project’s phases required the installation of 77 large custom air handlers and over 2.15 million pounds of ductwork, in addition to 11 miles of hydronic piping, 41 miles of plumbing, 606 water closets, 208 urinals, and 350 lavatories.

Phase I & Phase II were both constructed to LEED® Standards, with Phase I being awarded the LEED® Silver Certification.  Some of the technology installed by IMCOR used to meet these standards included fan walls, energy recovery units, and a condensate harvesting system.

For both phases of construction, IMCOR was instrumental in the pre-construction phase with value engineering and constructability reviews.  During the preconstruction process for Phase I of the project, IMCOR’s detailed payback analysis, of fan wall technology versus a traditional single fan Air Handling Unit, was a major deciding factor in the decision to go with fan walls.
