Edgewater Elementary School – Renovation/ Addition
Project Quick Facts
Alban Engineering, Inc. performed this work as a sub-consultant. The scope of work included renovating approximately 52,000 sq. ft. of existing facility and approximately 41,000 sq. ft. of additions. Construction will be phased while occupied. The existing building has a crawl space and consists of two (2) double loaded corridor classroom wings located behind the office and gym/cafeteria. The existing mechanical systems being replaced in their entirety consist of steam boilers and classroom unit ventilators. New mechanical generation equipment includes a high efficiency air cooled glycol chiller decoupled from the new dual temperature system via a flat plate and frame heat exchanger & multiple high efficiency condensing boilers. Classrooms will be heated and cooled by Unit Ventilators which are also equipped with controls for outside air economizer cycle while decoupled Dedicated Outdoor Air System (DOAS) units will provide the minimum ventilation air to meet code requirements. Plumbing systems will be replaced including all potable water, storm water and sanitary collection piping systems, high efficiency domestic water heater(s) and low flow plumbing fixtures. Gross building area is approximately 90,000 sq. ft.
All new power distribution, interior and exterior lighting systems, data, security and low voltage special systems were designed to serve the entire building based on the County’s standards. LED lighting with controls were designed to meet State of Maryland standards while still being intuitive for end users to control. All major power and IT equipment were installed under phase 1 to allow for easy extension into future construction phases of work and to minimize temporary requirements
