BKM provided m/e/p design services for the occupied renovation of a library/media center, including a complete upgrade to the building’s mechanical source equipment.
The existing chilled water system was replaced with a new water cooled modular chiller installed in sections to minimize potential disruption, demolition, and costs associated with the replacement of the preexisting chiller. Existing air handling units were replaced as well with minimal disruption to the occupants, allowing the facility to continue operation throughout the construction’s duration. Additional zone control was provided throughout the distribution system, and the existing pneumatic controls were upgraded to direct digital control type. In addition, a complete upgrade to the lighting system was included throughout the library facility.
