Techtown was originally founded by Wayne State University, Henry Ford Health System, and General Motors in an effort to support tech-based small business from the University. Today, the 5-story building serves a hub driving progress in Detroit.
PBA provided mechanical and electrical engineering design services for the third floor core and shell and fit-up of the building. This is the seventh project PBA has undertaken at Techtown; others include programming for the initial renovations of the former 440 Burroughs Building in the TechOne Business Incubator Facility.
The build out of the 27,770 square foot core/shell area included corridors, rest rooms, mechanical room, electrical room, and telecommunications room. Mechanical design included new HVAC and distribution for the entire floor, plumbing, and fire protection. The electrical design included normal and emergency power, fire alarm, and telecommunications.
