McKenney’s upgraded the air handlers feeding the offices of a major
broadcasting campus in Atlanta, Georgia.
The customer needed to double its HVAC capacity to accommodate a
change in floorplan from existing office space to a broadcasting studio.
There was limited shut down time and the project required expert
management of logistics and scheduling during demolition of existing air
handling units (AHUs) and installation of replacement systems.
McKenney’s collaborated extensively with its field personnel, the
customer’s staff and the project engineer to preplan and schedule the
many moving parts and people for the job. The team shut down each of
the four existing AHUs in the mechanical room one at a time and
removed each unit in pieces while the other AHUs remained connected.
Then, a new custom-fabricated AHU was installed piece-by-piece and

Due to McKenney’s meticulous scheduling and planning—along with a
staged AHU installation approach—the HVAC update was completed on
time and under budget for the broadcasting and studio space.
