General Overview: The Piazza at Schmitt’s Project developed a group of 6 and 7 story buildings on the site of what was formerly the Schmitt’s Brewery. There are three buildings that anchor the site, totaling 386,000 square feet of mixed use residential, commercial retail, office, and restaurant space. This project created 760 residential units atop 30 first floor retail and restaurant space, along with 19 townhomes. All of the buildings are arranged around an outdoor “piazza” plaza with features including cable mounted hanging lights, performance stage, and a 40’ HD LED jumbotron television. The piazza serves as a hub of activity from concerts, to televised ball games, parties, flea markets, and outdoor venues.

Special MEP/FP Features Spanning several phases with multiple architects, AEI was the sole MEP engineer for the duration of the project. HVAC systems include direct expansion, chilled water, packaged rooftop VAV air conditioning, and commercial kitchen exhaust/ makeup air, as required by the needs of each building.

Construction Value: Approximately $70 million.

AEI Services Provided: Mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection design services and construction administration support to deliver this multi-faceted, multi-phase project on time table of the owners.
