MCPS HVAC Renovations

Keller Construction Management provided Construction Management as Advisor Services to Montgomery County Public Schools on the school system's Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning Replacement Program totaling $28 Million for Fiscal Year 2015 and $18 Million for FY 2016. The program provides for the systematic replacement of heating, ventilating, air conditioning, automated temperature controls, and plumbing systems for MCPS facilities. This replacement approach is based on indoor environmental quality (IEQ), energy performance, maintenance data, and the school system's modernization schedule. Qualifying systems and/or components are selected based on the above criteria and are prioritized within the CIP through a rating system formula. MCPS is participating in interagency planning and review to share successful and cost effective approaches. For projects on the revitalization/expansion schedule, the scope is reduced to the minimum necessary to maintain the operation of the existing mechanical system. Any new equipment installations will be salvaged at the time of the revitalization/expansion project and will be re-used.

The pre-construction services Keller Construction Management provided included constructability reviews, value management, cost estimates and the development of the construction implementation schedule for each individual project. Services also included coordinating design and necessary permit/bid documents with engineers, soliciting bids for all sub trades of required scope of work and coordinating construction activities to complete all projects.
