Mall Expansion Provides More Shopping Options
The Simon Property Group (SPG) Houston Galleria is a high-end retail mall in a fast growing area west of downtown Houston, TX. SPG is working to convert a three-story space, once previously occupied by a large tenant, into space for multiple retail tenants and restaurants.Gausman & Moore is providing HVAC, plumbing, fire protection, and electrical design services for this project.Performance-based design services are also being provided for fire alarm, fire sprinkler, and energy management/temperature control systems.Once completed, the remodeling project will feature a large skylight with large custom luminaries (chandeliers and fabric cubes) that will brighten views of two-story concourses.Existing utilities from a former anchor tenant and existing mall services (central chillers, central fire pump, existing parking structures) will be used to support the remodeling effort. The building’s envelope is being largely reused.The project was designed in shared M&E Revit model. Conduit, ductwork, and piping coordination has been largely accomplished prior to installation. The restaurant tenants on the lower levels needed HVAC access to the roof, and multiple shafts were coordinated to minimize the impact on the tenants above.
Exceptional client service, intelligent engineering.
