E Cube provided LEED commissioning services for the Student Life Center located on the campus of the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, UT. The Student Life Center is the heart of campus social life. It is a place where students connect with each other as well as faculty and staff. The Student Life Center replaced the Einar Nielson Fieldhouse which was constructed nearly 70 years ago when the student population was fewer than 4,000. Today nearly 28,000 students populate the University.
This project brought all physical recreation programs and services together under one roof. The facility (approximately 145,000 square feet) includes gymnasiums, exercise studios, climbing and bouldering walls, running track, outdoor adventure center, cardiovascular and weight spaces, racquetball, squash, natatorium (indoor pool), food services, social spaces, administrative offices, and meeting spaces.
E Cube provided both fundamental and enhanced commissioning services for the Student Life Center. These services were performed throughout the project from the Design Phase through the Construction Phase and concluded with a warranty review and M&V. Commissioned systems included MEP, HVAC, Fire/Life Safety and Daylight/Lighting. E Cube also provided Thermal Comfort Verification as well as Monitoring and Verification (M&V) services for this project. Building Envelope Commissioning was provided by Architectural Testing Inc.
