Recently, ATS’ MEP department manager, David Mitchell P.E., had the honor of presenting his MEP design for the Zach Topfer Theater to the Audio Engineering Society of Central Texas. His HVAC design provided a nearly silent and highly energy efficient system with optimal air quality. The overall MEP design greatly contributed toward the achievement of LEED Silver Certification from the United States Green Building Council; among one of the first performance theaters to achieve that rating in Texas. David’s MEP design earned him the 2014 ACEC Texas Engineering Excellence Award – Gold Medal Winner for overall MEP design. We are fortunate to have David on our team.
