CMU Administration Building Mechanical Upgrades
CMU Admin Building
This project will make improvements to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Utilities' Administration Building.

What's happened? City staff has been working with engineering consultants PEA, P.A. for the design of new mechanical and lighting systems and other needed interior improvements to the facility.  The work includes the identification and correction of any non-code compliant items encountered.

What's next? The project team continues with construction of the 37,800 square foot facility.  Following construction and upon receipt of certificates of occupancy, employees will move back into their offices and work stations.

An Energy Project

This energy project will remove and replace the HVAC mechanical system throughout the entire facility, replacing grilles, ductwork and controls and installing a new chiller.  All interior light fixtures will be replaced with new energy efficient fixtures.  Other improvements include installation of new carpet, interior painting and a new fire alarm system.  The resulting product will be a much newer, renovated and comfortable building.

  • Replace old, outdated mechanical systems with new energy efficient systems and equipment.
  • Improve lighting throughout the building.
  • Improve in-door air quality and interior aesthetics.
  • Lower energy consumption and costs.

The project is located at 5100 Brookshire Freeway and is part of the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG) Program, funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Click below to learn more:
