April 14, 2014 energyair Share this post Construction is coming to a close for the latest Adventist Health System building for the Energy Air team. The scope included new construction of the HVAC system for a nine-story, 89,721-square-foot office building shell and 48,084 square feet of buildout space for Adventist Health System’s Florida Division Executive Office near Florida Hospital’s Orlando campus. The project was designed and built according to LEED Silver design standards. The Energy Air team installed a chilled-water mechanical system with 342 tons of cooling. Situated across from the hospital at the intersection of Rollins Street and Alden Road, a tight site for this new building made for logistical challenges. All deliveries were scheduled with a buck hoist and transported through one designated entry and exit point. Sun Rail testing oftentimes caused delays in deliveries due to interrupted access across the intersection. Even with a 30-minute train delay, the gate remained closed to all traffic. The ERV unit was delivered from the factory in five pieces, each of which was lifted with a crane and assembled on the roof (see photos below). Five men worked around the clock for three days to install the air handler and associated equipment in the extremely condensed first floor mechanical room. Duct work in this room was installed vertically, 35 feet up, to the third floor. After 36 hours, installation was complete in time for the finishes to be installed in the first floor lobby. We are currently wrapping up final commissioning of the project. The installed mechanical value was approximately $1.6 million, and the general contractor is Brasfield & Gorrie General Contractors.
