ADC’s design services included, an option phase, schematic, design development, construction drawings and construction administration. The scope of work included whole building site survey, which yielded a complete set of HVAC as built drawings (since no drawings were available) for all mechanical rooms, ductwork distribution, as well as the entire building Architectural layout. It was conclude that all air handling units that serve building B334 with the exception of AC-11 located in the basement mechanical room, needed to be replaced. ADC performed load calculation, designed ductwork modification for each department in order to meet current VA requirements, coordination with vendors to identify electrical capacity and selection options for air handling units. Internally ADC utilizing Revit and CAD files in order to prepare the construction drawings for delivery in BIM.

Construction cost estimates were provided at each stage to assist with capital planning for construction and to remain within budget (Air Handling Units Replacement) as well as next phase upgrades of CHW, HHW, CW, VAV Terminal units, Ductwork system and controls. Extensive construction phasing documents we provided since the entire building needed to remain operational during construction.
