The Fox Building
Henry Adams provided the MEP engineering design supporting the adaptive re-use, mixed-use project.
The Fox Building has transformed into a vibrant community of 95 apartments and artist workspaces. During the renovation, many of the original features were retained and restored to glory such as original maple wood plank flooring, glass block windows, and high ceilings. Situated in Baltimore City’s artistic and dynamic Hampden neighborhood, the building is only a short walking distance to many of the area's best dining and shopping attractions.
The renovation touched every part of the 125,000 SF historic industrial building to convert it into an apartment building. The project includes multiple amenity spaces including on-site parking, a heated swimming pool, state-of-the-art fitness center, resident lounge, game room, and much more.
The HVAC design was based on split system heat pumps and included ducted outdoor air where natural ventilation was not possible. This also included central exhaust and required make-up air as necessary. Mechanical ventilation was provided for the parking garage. Fire protection measures included detail service entrance, performance specification for sprinkler system layout, as well as a fire alarm system. The electrical scope primarily consisted of power and lighting. Design of voice/data and CATV devices and cabling in common areas were provided to a hub panel or termination cabinet in the telecommunication room.
