September 24, 2013 energyair Share this post The 80,000 square-foot new building in partnership with the UCF Army and Air Force ROTC departments is now complete at UCF. Energy Air was contracted as the mechanical subcontractor and also provided BIM modeling and coordination services for the mechanical, electrical and plumbing. Our team overcame many challenges over the course of this project. Check out the tight overhead conditions in the photos below. The mechanical system included custom chilled-water air handling units ranging from five to 50 tons. They’re painted black and will later have the UCF logo placed on them – a pretty slick look for a mechanical room! With no laydown area, we needed multiple men to unload material and supplies from the semitrucks- this included five-and-a-half truckloads full of ductwork per mechanical room for the first and second floors alone. The coordination efforts of the BIM team produced an MEP model that attributed to a more productive and efficient installation in the field. A photo below shows the one continuous louvre installed in the circulation hallways of both floors. Clancy & Theys Construction Company was the general contractor for the project, and the installed mechanical value is more than $2 million. The project was designed and built according to LEED Silver design standards.
