  • 2. McKenney’s implemented a design/build approach to upgrade the HVAC and plumbing systems at the training barracks of a Georgia military installation.
  • 3. The Challenge To stay within the original design/build budget and complete the renovation project on time, the McKenney’s needed to address a myriad of obstacles including mechanical chase limitations, serviceability and scheduling. The Solution To overcome installation constraints, a modular rack system for the HVAC and plumbing components was developed by McKenney’s and built at their fabrication facility. Six trades, including sheet metal, piping, plumbing, electrical, controls and insulation were involved in the fabrication. This design increased serviceability by providing maintenance access to all critical parts. It also reduced costs by minimizing field install time. The content of this document is not intended as an endorsement.
  • 4. The Results Use of the rack system, cost-effective prefabrication methods and completing the project on time and on budget made the project an overall success. The government was so pleased with the rack system it was included as a requirement in the next Request for Proposals (RFP) issued for similar work.
