It is often taken for granted by educators, students, and support staff that their campus buildings and facilities will be healthy, safe, and productive environments in which to work and learn. Keeping the facilities comfortable for occupants while maintaining peak system performance requires both comprehensive strategies and efficient operations. Large campuses with aging mechanical systems spread over a number of buildings can be a challenge to manage. McKenney’s offers retrocommissioning services for educational clients. We can partner with facilities managers to maximize the value of the campus investment and keep things running smoothly.
Since mechanical systems are constantly in use, they must be regularly maintained. Aging systems need attention to prevent breakdowns. Newer systems need to be routinely inspected and serviced to keep them operating at peak efficiency. McKenney’s has knowledgeable teams that can identify potential issues before they become big problems. Technicians perform onsite analysis to help prioritize items that need to be addressed and will recommend strategic solutions. Identifying areas that have the potential to cause problems helps reduce repair costs and minimize downtime. Comprehensive system analysis can allow for budgeting decisions to be made so that equipment can be replaced as necessary.
McKenney’s helps clients plan for the future by developing a capital improvement plan with a list of long-term and short-term projects. These can be implemented at times when they will cause the least disruption, such as over a summer break. Careful planning of the implementation phase allows project management to coordinate with all contractors for optimal scheduling. This ensures projects are completed on time and on budget with minimal interruption to the educational process.
