Client: ArSed Engineering
Location: Cochiti, NM
The Cochiti Wellness Center, a medical / dental clinic building, is located in Cochiti, New Mexico. The building consists of exam rooms, a pharmacy, a medical laboratory room, a dental laboratory room, a darkroom, open dental operatories, and dental equipment (i.e. Air and Vacuum).
The total square footage for the building is 3,880 square feet. Lopez Engineering, Inc. was sub-contracted by ArSed Engineering Group, a mechanical engineering firm, to provide electrical design services that were required for permit and construction documents. The project was under a strict budget which Lopez Engineering efficiently met.
Electrical service to the building was provided from a new pad mounted transformer with underground feeders to a main 208Y/120V 3-phase electrical distribution panelboard, with utility meter and main building disconnect on the building exterior. This panel provided power to all electrical loads within the building as well as parking lot and building exterior lighting.
Interior lighting was designed to meet IESNA design recommendations with T8 fluorescent fixtures with control from dual toggle switches in each space.
