eorgia Tech built a 45,000-square-foot facility to research energy efficient technologies with a goal of minimizing net energy usage of the building.

THE CHALLENGE

McKenney’s was responsible for a tight project schedule, which required management of several major subcontractors performing work concurrently and coordination of material storage at a congested job site.

THE SOLUTION

A pre-planning and batching effort was implemented. Many energy efficient technologies were utilized, including: dual energy recovery wheels, an under-floor air distribution system with individual zone controls, a prefabricated chiller plant with a magnetic bearing compressor, natural ventilation with automatically controlled windows and louvers, radiant under-slab heating systems, coil condensate recovery, and an underground

rainwater recovery system for the toilets and HVAC systems. McKenney’s was able to keep minimal amounts of material on the jobsite and worked effectively with other contractors.

THE RESULTS

McKenney’s successfully completed the job on schedule and on budget and helped the laboratory earn LEED® Platinum certification.
