cKenney’s provided a new decentralized domestic water system at a maximum-security correctional facility in Bessemer, Alabama.

THE CHALLENGE

With no up-to-date drawings to indicate current service and systems locations, McKenney's developed the energy conservation measures (ECM) to decentralize the existing hot and cold domestic water system and installed new

distribution piping. The facility remained active throughout the project, requiring detailed planning, maximum prefabrication, and minimal disruptions to water service.

THE SOLUTION

The McKenney's team leveraged its knowledge of correctional facility operations, along with its turnkey design/build delivery methods to meet NORESCO’s ROI requirements. McKenney's also conducted detailed site

surveys, built full-scale mock-ups, maximized off-site prefabrications, and minimized outages to reduce operational disruptions.

THE RESULTS

Precise planning, prefabrication and onsite coordination minimized installation time. Overall, McKenney's was able to develop the ECM and meet the ROI goals of NORESCO while replacing both the hot and cold domestic water systems with no service disruption.
