National World War I Memorial at Pershing Park
Henry Adams provided the MEP engineering design for the new World War I Memorial located in DC’s Pershing Park. The memorial park will commemorate the heroism of Americans who served in the Great War and will incorporate parts of the existing memorial on site. The memorial will feature a fountain pool, and ice rink, west terrace, below grade structure, sculpture wall, and kiosk.
The mechanical scope includes HVAC and associated building controls, as well as plumbing including sanitary, venting, heater, and fire suppression. Replacement of the pool and fountain equipment, ice equipment, domestic water heater, plumbing fixtures, damaged pipe insulation, and corroded piping will be incorporated into the design. New domestic water piping will be distributed to the new pool equipment, new hose bibbs, the irrigation system, and any other new plumbing fixtures. New unit heaters will maintain space temperature of 45 degrees F in the mechanical equipment room, electrical room, Zamboni room, and refrigerator room. New exhaust fans will be provided for these rooms as well.
The electrical scope includes power, fire alarm, communications including voice and data, as well as electronic safety and security including access control and video surveillance empty conduit systems. The facility’s electrical distribution system will consist of a main distribution panelboard that will serve mechanical and water feature equipment, as well as lighting and power panelboards. The West Below Grade Structure is illuminated mostly by linear strip industrial turrets and linear lensed vapor-tight luminaries. All luminaires have been retrofitted with T8 LED lamps. Lighting will be zoned to be able to turn on, turn off, or dim certain fixtures for particular events or scenes. A new telecommunications system will be provided and tied into the AV system supporting connections for microphones, speakers, and other equipment requested during the design. A new security alarm panel will feature dual technology motion sensors, balanced magnetic door contacts, and a keypad. The new fire alarm control panel will provide coverage for the all rooms with smoke detectors, manual pull stations, and visible notification devices.
