The existing HVAC system, which was originally constructed over 47 years prior, included seven mechanical rooms all housing the original boilers and air handling equipment – most of which were long passed their lifespans, out of code, and in desperate need of replacement. Additionally, several areas of the existing 233,000 s.f. facility, such as the gymnasium, industrial arts wing, and locker rooms were only heated and not air-conditioned, and not performing to modern efficiency standards. Through a collaborative design process with Russell and the design team, we were able to identify over $244,000 in cost savings to keep the project budget in tact. Additionally, Actual construction work began on April 30th, 2018 in select areas, and substantial completion of the project was completed by August 15th, 2018 with final boiler finishes completed by October 2nd, 2018. This equates to just under $7,000,000 worth of work executed in four months.
