The Bank of Lancaster County Corporate Headquarters houses three floors of executive offices for this regional bank.
Consolidated Engineers provided the design of the HVAC, plumbing, and electrical systems for the project. Since there was no room in the building, all mechanical systems needed to be located on the roof. The system was specially designed to eliminate as much noise as possible since it was located right above the bank executives’ offices on the top floor. This was achieved by locating the units over non-critical areas, running ductwork lined with special sound absorbent material horizontally on the roof and installing sound absorbent material in the curb between the roof and the bottom of the units. In addition, vibration isolation equipment was installed to eliminate any vibration transfer to the structure.
