The concept of “Green” building design has existed in various forms since the OPEC oil embargo of the 1970’s. The latest impetus for the approach was the establishment in 1998 by the US Green Building Council of LEED - Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. MDA Engineering, Inc. has long been involved in designs which have incorporated one or more of the following system approaches which qualify for credit under the LEED certification system.

A large percent of the LEED point allocation system comes under the work scope of the M/E/P systems design, making it a vital component in any successful project. Even more important is the engineer’s experience in understanding the client’s economic interests and where green systems are appropriate to the clients needs.

Building Information Modeling Technology (BIM)

MDA Engineering, Inc. has embraced the trend of designing facilities using building information modeling technology (BIM). We recognize the powerful benefits of this tool and have selected Autodesk Revit as our software package. We have designed multiple projects utilizing BIM including:

Angela Center Athletic & Wellness Complex - Notre Dame, IN

Renovation and addition to the Angela facility at St. Mary’s College. This 104,000 sq. ft., $16M project provides new spaces for athletic department staff, golf simulation, strength and cardio, spin and aerobics rooms, running track, locker rooms, multi-court field house and dining area and kitchen.

The Anderson’s Corporate Headquarters - Maumee, OH

The project involved the design of a new 3 story, 140,000 sq. ft. Corporate Headquarters Building.

New Defiance Middle/High School - Defiance, OH

For this project, we were hired by the mechanical and plumbing contractors to provide detailed coordination drawings for a new 250,000 sq. ft. middle school and high school. We served as the lead designer in this effort to coordinate with the general trades, electrical and fire protection contractors and systems.

Dover Air Force Base - Dover, DE

The C-5/C-17 Aircraft Maintenance Training Facility project consists of a 6500 sq. ft. building addition with two high bay portions to contain C-5 and C-17 aircraft engines for maintenance training purposes.

Lakeland Medical - Niles, Michigan

Lakeland Medical Office Building is a three story, 42,000sf facility designed for Lakeland Health Care. The building is home to Hyperbaric, Oncology, Audiology, ENT, OBGYN, Bariatric and general outpatient surgery practices
