Dr. Samuel A. Mudd Elementary School – Renovation/ Addition
Project Quick Facts
AEI performed this work as a sub-consultant. The scope of work included demolishing approximately 10,000 sq. ft., renovating approximately 35,000 sq. ft. and includes approximately 40,000 sq. ft. of additions. The building is single story and consists of two (2) double loaded corridor classroom wings behind and adjacent to the main office suite and gymnasium/cafeteria. The existing mechanical systems were replaced in their entirety, consisting of hot water boilers and direct expansion type unit ventilators. New mechanical systems included a geothermal system including an earth heat exchanger, supplemental gas fired high efficiency boilers, vertical water to air heat pumps in closets, a water cooled VRF system for the office admin suite, water cooled rooftop dedicated outdoor air system units providing ventilation air to classrooms and water cooled roof mounted Air Handling Units serving assembly spaces. All outside air was preconditioned using heat recovery wheels.
The entire school’s infrastructure systems were replaced to meet State of Maryland requirements. All new power distribution, lighting, lighting controls, fire alarm, security and IT infrastructure was designed throughout the building based on the Counties standards for schools. LED lighting fixtures with local controls for scene control were designed to be intuitive to the end user.
All plumbing systems (piping, equipment, fixtures) were replaced in their entirety. The building will now be protected by a wet pipe sprinkler system.
