cKenney’s replaced four
multi-zone air handlers at an art
museum on the campus of one
of the world’s leading research universities.
The McKenney’s team had to devise innova-
tive strategies to perform the HVAC work
without compromising the integrity of the
museum’s artwork, artifacts and day-to-day
operations. Maintaining temperature and
humidity control in the museum was critical
along with addressing worker comfort in a
hot, congested attic—the location designated
for the new air handlers.
The team used small fan coil units to tempo-
rarily cool vital areas of the museum and the
attic space. To avoid any possible damage to
museum displays, the four new air handler
units were lifted by crane to the roof where
workers brought them into the attic. In addition,
the team included variable air volume capabil-
ity and robust filtration to the HVAC system.
The museum stayed open during the entire
HVAC installation. Museum displays were
protected and staff and visitors now enjoy
a consistent, comfortable environment.
