Precise Planning, Staged Installation

McKenney’s upgraded the air handlers feeding the offices of a major broadcasting campus in Atlanta, Georgia.

THE CHALLENGE

The customer needed to double its HVAC capacity to accommodate a change in floorplan from existing office space to a broadcasting studio. There was limited shut down time and the project required expert management of logistics and scheduling during demolition of existing air handling units (AHUs) and installation of replacement systems.

THE SOLUTION

McKenney’s collaborated extensively with its field personnel, the customer’s staff and the project engineer to preplan and schedule the many moving parts and people for the job. The team shut down each of the four existing AHUs in the mechanical room one at a time and removed each unit in pieces while the other AHUs remained connected. Then, a new custom-fabricated AHU was installed piece-by-piece and brought online.

THE RESULTS

Due to McKenney’s meticulous scheduling and planning—along with a staged AHU installation approach—the HVAC update was completed on time and under budget for the broadcasting and studio space.
