New Hampshire Estates Elementary School – Systemic Replacement
Project Quick Facts
The scope of work for New Hampshire Estates Elementary School includes the replacement of all existing mechanical equipment and the associated electrical and structural requirements to support this work. The project included two phases occurring during the summer of 2016 and the summer of 2017.
The scope of work included the replacement of the central hot water heating plant and chilled water plant serving the 2-pipe dual temperature system. High efficiency boilers and air cooled chillers replaced the old inefficient equipment. The entire mechanical room piping was replaced to allow for the use of variable flow pumping systems.
All air handing equipment and classroom fan coil units were replaced in their entirety. Several split type air handling units (indoor air handling units with remote air cooled condensing units) were replaced with packaged cooling rooftop units since the preexisting indoor air handling units were located above ceiling making service and maintenance difficult.
The building had comfort problems as a result of old and failing equipment as well as a failing pneumatic temperature control system. As part of this project all preexisting automatic temperature control systems throughout the building were replaced in their entirety with direct digital controls electric/electronic actuation tied into the county energy management system.
Structural modifications were required to support new rooftop units.
Electrical upgrades included power distribution systems for new/replacement mechanical equipment and modifications to lighting and fire alarm systems.
