Purdue University

North Central Campus
Student Services and Activities Complex

This project provides the mechanical (HVAC, plumbing and fire protection) and telecommunications (including voice/data, CATV and CCTV) engineering to build a new Student Services and Activities Complex on the Purdue University – North Central campus in Westville, Indiana. The building is being designed by Design Organization. Applied will provide the mechanical systems design and the design for communications systems. Loftus Engineering, in a teaming arrangement with Applied, will design the building’s electrical systems.

The building includes 104,000 square feet and will house student athletics/fitness and assembly spaces. The student athletics/fitness area includes the campus spectator gymnasium, fitness area and running track, a locker room, student organization spaces, multi-purpose rooms and faculty office spaces. The assembly space consists of a Great Hall that can hold 1,000 people and contains a satellite kitchen/serving space. This will be used for assembly and performance purposes.

The building will be connected to campus utilities for steam/condensate, chilled water, domestic/fire water, primary electrical and telecommunications. These extensions will be designed by Applied Engineering; Loftus Engineering will assist with the electrical portion.

The project has a projected construction cost of approximately $24.3 million. The design work has been completed through Design Development.
