HiMEC Mechanical was awarded the mechanical contract for the construction of the new Voxman Music Building in December 2013 and will be providing plumbing, piping, HVAC, and BIM modeling and detailing.  One of the most striking features of this five-story building is its large glass exterior designed to make the facility more open to the public and highlight its new location in the downtown area.  It will also feature various noise reduction and environmental design elements and materials in the design and construction to meet the requirements for LEED certification.

The new music building will include a 700-seat concert hall, a 200-seat recital hall, an organ performance hall, classrooms, faculty studios, and numerous rehearsal spaces of various sizes, and is due to be completed in 2016.
