In May of 2015, Bell BCI Company, LLC was selected to perform the $4.5 MM mechanical and plumbing component of Under Armour’s 173,000 SF Finance and IT office building project in Baltimore, MD. This fast-paced project required an innovative approach and a highly skilled team to complete the renovation and build-out of the former big box store within its tight six-month schedule. During the BIM process, our team created a model of the existing structure from 2D “as-built” drawings in an effort to coordinate new mechanical, plumbing, sheetmetal and electrical components. This model enabled us to identify areas of missing design and offer timely solutions to the design team, which helped keep the project moving on schedule. In addition, Bell prefabricated pipe assemblies off-site and shipped them to the site for expedited installation. Bell’s scope of work on this project included:
(2) Air cooled chillers totaling 450 Tons
(14) Air Handling Units totaling 140,000 cfm
(9) Ductless Split AC Units
HVAC Pumps, Fans, and associated equipment
The building, designed by architecture firm Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, was completed on time and within budget. The facility features a 350-person auditorium; 29 conference rooms with audiovisual technology; IT help desk; open stairwells; collaborative workspaces, and double-height perimeter event spaces.
The Bell Company successfully out ran (and out walked) the sun in a race against Melanoma.
Bell was selected by M.B. Kahn Construction as the Mechanical and Plumbing Design-Assist subcontractor for the MUSC Health – West Campus. The recently completed project was a two-story 122,000 SF renovation and re-purpose of a former JC Penney store at the Citadel Mall in the West Ashley area of Charleston, South Carolina.
