Oak Brook Public LibraryOak Brook Public LibraryOak Brook Public LibraryThe design of MEP systems for this project was optimized to improve occupant comfort, conserve energy, and provide suitable temperature and humidity levels for book storage zones.

All of this was accomplished while keeping project costs in line with more traditional HVAC systems for this 24,000 sq. ft. library.

CCJM designed a unique underfloor dual-duct system to maximize flexibility in the use of floor space, allowing distribution of computer, telephone, and electrical lines to any point in the building, and 100% fresh air supply throughout the building. The design included the elimination of hydronic systems and an external overhang was designed to maximize shading and improve air quality.
