Gausman & Moore provided MEP design engineering services for three new picnic shelters and two sanitation buildings at Lake Vermilion State Park. The G&M team included Licia Oligmueller (mechanical), Kalysta Davis (mechanical), and Matt Tisdell (electrical). Our project team collaborated with the Minnesota DNR to meet sustainable design goals. This included reducing overall energy use, incorporating renewable energy systems, and harvesting graywater to reduce water use. Other elements of the project included HVAC and plumbing systems, electrical service (power distribution, branch circuiting), lighting and lighting controls, energy efficient lighting with automatic controls, energy modeling, low-flow and no-flow plumbing fixtures, and solar domestic water heating.
