EDCS HIGHLIGHTS PROJECTS
Remove and Replace Polycarbonate Skylight
Project Manager Curtis Russell led a project at the Blocker Building to remove and replace an existing skylight system that had hail storm damage. Replacement included demolition of the existing and installation of new frame and panels.
ADA Accessible Parking
Project Manager Nevin Brown’s project was to provide ADA accessible parking for Nagle Hall, Hart Hall and Psychology. The grading of the lot and sidewalks was changed to provide drainage away from Psychology.
Replace all the Hydronic Piping in the Psychology Building
After many pre-construction planning meetings with the Client, Contractor and SSC the plan was in place to be led by Project Manager Jim Uehlin. From December 13th, 2019 to January 2, 2020 the entire building was shut down/off limits to all Building occupants. Dynamic Systems, Inc.(Mechanical Contractor) had three weeks to demo the existing Hydronic Piping and install new pipe on Levels 2, 3 & 4 along with new Building Controls. It was a great undertaking! DSI worked (6) ten hour shifts with 25 to 30 personnel working those shifts……they ended up working Sundays as well in order to finish on time.
We reinstalled the ceilings that were demo’d after the new pipe was installed, put everything back in order along with a Final Clean by 8:00 am on January 2, 2020 before the occupants returned to work. Our mantra was: “As if it never happened”
It was a true Team Effort!! Many thanks go to Dr. Hether Lench, DSI, Marek Bros., Siemens and Bill Cox.
