McKenney’s completely replaced 16 floors of mechanical systems within
an occupied commercial office building in Atlanta.
The McKenney’s team needed to upgrade the mechanical systems they
had originally installed 25 years ago. The work had to be performed in
phases—vacating occupied floors and relocating employees to newly
renovated floors. Design challenges and a complex schedule resulted in
as many as 10 floors being under construction simultaneously with
varying completion dates.
To minimize installation time, the team created detailed shop and
fabrication drawings to get preassembled pieces to the field.
A comprehensive schedule and delivery log reduced on-site clutter and
allowed just-in-time arrival of materials and equipment. In addition,
several key foremen managed large teams to ensure timely completion
while certifying installation quality and integrity.

The building owner’s goals to minimize disruptions during construction,
occupy newly renovated floors as soon as installations were complete,
and adhere to an aggressive schedule were all successfully met.
