Tweet/Garot was chosen for the SPASH project because of our reputation for providing quality workmanship in a timely fashion. Much of this project was completed during the school year so our flexibility to work around the students’ schedule was a factor in the project’s duration.
Our scope of work consisted of replacing 34 AHU’s, 120 VAV boxes, numerous exhaust fans, and installing seven new boilers for providing hot water for the school and its large pool. For the boiler room we were able to scan the room for existing equipment, produce a model which represented what we were installing versus the existing equipment in the space, and prefabricate all the boiler piping resulting in less field labor and overall cutting costs of this installation.
We worked closely with the general contractor, electricians, and plumbers to assure the renovation went as seamless as possible. Our main project challenge was unforeseen conditions with much of this project being a remodel. Over the years of school improvements there was a lot of equipment, piping, ductwork, controls, and electrical added above the ceiling which was unplanned for. Our process consisted of navigating through the existing materials, removing what was not needed, and installing a functional system to perform to the project standards.
This project resulted in zero injuries and the field crew was successful in eliminating as many safety issues as possible before performing work.
