McKenney's, Inc. Takes the Lead for Hospital Mechanical Systems

McKenney's conducted a comprehensive analysis to identify mechanical system components and work plan modifications to align with significant budget constraints.

Atlanta, Georgia (I-Newswire) January 18, 2013 - A large healthcare organization in the Southeast wanted to expand operations with the addition of an acute-care hospital with around-the-clock emergency services. The project stalled for two years until a team of contractors-including McKenney's, Inc.-re-engaged and completed construction in about 10 months.

McKenney's conducted a comprehensive analysis to identify mechanical system components and work plan modifications to align with significant budget constraints. McKenney's also assisted with several initiatives in pursuit of LEED® certification.

Project Team
* Owner: Piedmont Healthcare
* Contractor: KBR Building Group
* Architect: Perkins+Will
* Engineer: HPD Engineers, LLC

The solution was to:
* Analyze original construction estimates to identify savings
* Manage the trade construction schedule to facilitate trade sequencing
* Use Building Information Modeling (BIM) to coordinate all prefabrication, regulate costs and maintain timelines
* Prefabricate piping in-house

The Results
* Construction of HVAC system, plumbing and automated controls completed in 10 months
* Adhered to revised budgets
* Supported LEED certification

McKenney's coordinated their entire effort, facilitating communication between team members to ensure schedules and budgets were met. The massive project included more than 75,000 hours dedicated to plumbing, nearly 50,000 hours for pipefitting and 41,000 hours for sheetmetal.
