The following report is the examination of the Medical Office Building and potential design alternatives. The Medical Office Building is located in the North-East United States and has a footprint of about 72,000 SF. For the mechanical depth, the option of both a horizontal and vertical well ground coupled system was examined. It was found that both systems would be possible to install but the horizontal well system was the most cost effective. Two breadths were also done on the building; a electrical breadth and a structural breadth. For the electrical breadth, the current system was analyzed and redesigned to better accommodate the changes in the electrical system from the mechanical redesign. The structural breadth analyzed the current roof system and it was found that a redesign of the roof could save a significant amount of money.
