Located off of I-35/80 in West Des Moines, this 23,500 square foot building is Class A office space owned by Northwest Bank. At the time of completion, there was approximately 12,000 square feet of leasable office space spread throughout the first and second floors of the two story branch bank.

Baker Group provided and installed a VAV rooftop unit that feeds fan powered VAV boxes with electric re-heat throughout the building. Each of the pieces of mechanical equipment are controlled by Invensys/Schneider Electric DDC controls, allowing Northwest Bank to manage the building automation system through web-based graphics.

Baker Group worked closely with the General Contractor, architect and owner to design and install a system that provides comfort to Northwest Bank’s current space, while allowing Northwest Bank HVAC flexibility for future tenants. 

Northwest Bank has a number of architectural features, including a two-story atrium, numerous drywall bulkheads and high ceilings. Baker Group was able to install a plumbing and HVAC system that seamlessly integrated into each of the design features.
