Baltimore Jewelry Center
Henry Adams provided the MEP engineering design for the tenant fit-out for the 3,510 SF Baltimore Jewelry Center. The center is an educational non-profit housing a creative workspace for artists in the fields of metalwork, fabrication, and jewelry. The space houses artistic essentials such as studio and gallery areas, fabrication torches, metalsmithing tools, kilns, presses, mills, saws, buffing machines, bench grinders, bead blasters, spray booth, tumblers, and cleaners.
The Baltimore Jewelry Center occupies the ground floor of a historic theater, the Centre, which was recently renovated into office space for various clients and film viewing for the Maryland Institute College of Art.
The mechanical engineering scope included design for the HVAC, associated building controls, and plumbing system inclusive of sanitary, vent, water, gas, and fire suppression.
The electrical engineering scope included power, lighting, fire alarm, and voice/data communications.
The fire protection scope included detailing connection to existing sprinkler zone piping and performance specification for sprinkler head layout. The base-building fire alarm system was also modified to accommodate requirements for this fit-out.
The project was named as an honorable mention in the AIA Baltimore Excellence in Design Awards.
