Innovative Sustainable Design Engineering & Construction
Palm Beach State College
Belle Glades Technical Education Facility and Chiller Plant
The Technical Education Center (TEC) at Palm Beach State College, spanning 33,982 square feet, stands as the
institution's inaugural LEED Platinum Certified Project, consolidating vocational training and certification programs.
Designed by CDE, the building encompasses vocational classrooms, administrative offices, and support services for
programs like Welding, Construction Trades, Law Enforcement, and Cosmetology, with provisions for future
expansions including Heavy Duty Truck and Bus Mechanics. CDE's contributions extend to plumbing, fire protection
systems, electrical distribution, and renewable energy integration, including a greywater system for rainwater
collection and energy-efficient design elements. Moreover, CDE's enhancements to the Belle Glades campus chiller
plant, such as replacing chillers and upgrading cooling towers, have notably reduced campus energy consumption,
showcasing a commitment to sustainability and efficiency.
Daytona State College
Daytona State College Thermal Energy Storage System
CDE was tasked in 2012 with studying a thermal storage system (TES) for Daytona State College's Daytona campus,
aiming to implement a system that produces ice or chilled water during off-peak hours to cool buildings during
peak demand periods. Following a review of options, CDE recommended a 2.5-million gallon chilled water storage
tank based on energy cost savings and lifecycle analysis. Daytona State College secured funding for the $3 million
project estimated by CDE, with construction starting in 2013 under CDE's oversight. The project, commissioned by
CDE in the summer of 2014, achieved annual energy cost savings exceeding $200,000, leading to Florida Power &
Light offering incentives totaling over $1.1 million. The project's success was celebrated with a ribbon-cutting
ceremony on November 20, with praise for Pond and company's architectural design blending the tank's
appearance with the campus aesthetics. Overall, the installation marked another successful TES implementation,
showcasing the collaboration's effectiveness and cost-saving benefits.
NASA / Kennedy Space Center
NASA’s SSPF Science Annex
The SSPF Science Annex, situated near the Kennedy Space Center, functions as a vital science laboratory supporting
manned space missions. Constructed and commissioned by CDE, the building boasts comprehensive design and
construction, ensuring 100% system redundancy and resilience against single-point failures, with all aspects
modeled using BIM. Challenges included maintaining precise temperature and humidity control across diverse
spaces within a constrained area, requiring innovative solutions like a mezzanine to house extensive mechanical
systems. Architecturally, the building had to be airtight and moisture-proof, with pressure relationships maintained
over varying airflow rates. Commissioning involved rigorous testing of systems to address potential failure
scenarios. Energy-saving measures, including chilled water systems, VFD controls, occupancy sensors, demand-
controlled ventilation, and high-efficiency boilers, were incorporated, resulting in a 35% energy savings compared
to conventional designs, with the building achieving LEED Silver Certification.
University of Central Florida
UCF Wayne Densch Expansion Building
CDE contributed design engineering support to this 2017 university athletics project consisting of a new 40,000
square foot building located between the existing Wayne Densch Athletic Offices and the Nicholson Field House.
This two-story building includes training rooms, classrooms, locker rooms, and offices. Constructed in multiple
phases, CDE's design team worked within UCF's budgetary constraints and university design standards with
sustainability in mind. CDE designed the first phase "shell building” with first and second floors, exterior walls,
windows, doors and storefront systems and roof. The design also included interior fire-rated corridors to provide
egress from the Wayne Densch Center to the exterior on the first floor and similar corridors leading to the egress
stairs on the second floor.
Indian River State College
Brown Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship
As preferred structural engineering partner, CDE collaborated with Florida Architects, Inc. to complete the design of
a 65,000 square foot educational facility for Indian River State College in Fort Pierce, FL. Completed in 2012 at a
construction cost of $14M, the building focuses on Alternative Energy and Sustainability, housing technical
facilities, laboratories, offices, and conference rooms within a two-story wing and a three-story administration
area. It serves as a hub for academic, technical, and entrepreneurial learning in green industries like
Nanotechnology and Photonics, featuring open-air classrooms, multimedia classrooms, and laboratories for hands-
on training. The facility earned LEED® Gold certification for its use of green building materials, energy-saving
solutions like photovoltaic roof panels, LED lighting, wind turbines, solar panels, and eco-friendly landscaping.
