Peace River Electric Co-Op – Headquarters


MCA designed Peace River's headquarters to meet LEED Silver certification requirements and be hurricane resistant in order to accommodate the cooperative's Emergency Management Center (EMC). This facility also houses the administration, finance, engineering and customer service call center functions. In addition, there is an emergency generator, building UPS system and dedicated HVAC computer room units, as well as a raised floor system with underfloor cable management and air delivery for the Server Room and EMC.

The exterior envelope meets strict Miami-Dade hurricane force wind load requirements. The amount of rooftop equipment was minimized to reduce wind damage and the roof is coated with a highly reflective white coating to minimize roof heat island effect.
