Municipal Building Renovated for UNT College of Law
Farnsworth Group is providing fundamental commissioning and testing, adjusting, and balance (TAB) services for the interior renovation of approximately 107,000 GSF to the Dallas Municipal Building to provide permanent accommodations for the University of North Texas Dallas College of Law. The renovation will include integration of historically significant elements into the project.
Commissioned systems for this project include mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection, building automation and TAB. Commissioning tasks include design reviews, creating pre-functional checklists, defining readiness criteria for testing, and creating and witnessing functional performance testing on site.
This facility is expected to accommodate an enrollment of 500 students. Renovation will provide state-of-the-art flexible classrooms, seminar rooms, instructional laboratory spaces, an expanded law library, on-site clinic resource center, faculty and administration offices, and other support areas for students, faculty, and staff.
Farnsworth Group has become an integral part of the design and construction team to carefully coordinate the MEP decisions that may affect the shell and/or the historical nature of the project.
