Washington Elementary School

Hanover, Pennsylvania

The project included a complete renovation of the existing two story 29,000 sf building plus a 9,000 sf gym, library and office additions designed to accommodate seven phases. HVAC design services included a feasibility study and life cycle cost analysis preceding design of a variable refrigerant system (VRV) heat pump system with energy recovery ventilators and rooftop units for the gymnasium. a new 1200 amp, 277/480 volt, 3 phase electrical service was installed. new high efficiency lighting and automatic lighting control, power circuits for receptacles and equipment were installed throughout the school. Plumbing upgrades including new low flow fixtures, a full service kitchen, and new sanitary piping and existing domestic water piping remained.

We had a less than .5% change order rate—which is unheard of. Standard budgeted is 5% to 10%!
