CNM Westside Phase III
WINNER OF THE 2014 ASSOCIATED GENERAL CONTRACTORS NEW MEXICO BEST BUILDINGS AWARD IN THE BIM CATEGORY
The CNM Westside Phase III project is a 62,000 SF building on Central New Mexico Community College’s Westside campus in Albuquerque, NM. The building was delivered under a Construction Manager at Risk contract.
The building is a two-story, split level, steel framed construction. A forty-five foot high concrete core structure has integral color and fluted form liners. The architect selected concrete polish floors throughout the interior. The exterior walls of the building have a high-end appearance with an extensive use of storefront and glazing, shaded by stainless steel perforated scrim panels, and metal wall panels.
A highly efficient ground source heat pump system for the HVAC system incorporates a geothermal well system. Over 150 bore holes were drilled to a depth of 300 feet, and water will be circulated through the piping to provide a source of heat during the winter, and cooling during the summer. The project is a LEED 2009 NC project, and is expected to achieve a USGBC LEED Silver Certification.
