Project Name: Barret Traditional Middle School
Location: Louisville, Kentucky
Barret Middle School is a three story traditional school that was in need of HVAC renovation. Like most schools in Jefferson County, repairs of this extent had to take place during summer break, which meant that Hussung Mechanical had approximately 10 weeks to complete this project. With 25 plumbers and pipefitters working 6 days a week, Hussung Mechanical replaced 4 boilers, 7 air handling units and 6 pumps. Also, 67 Fan Coil Units and 39 unit ventilators were installed, in each classroom, for individual temperature control. In order to accommodate the renovation of the HVAC system the electrical scope of work included routing power to all new mechanical equipment along with other associated electrical system renovations.
This challenging project required meticulous planning and coordination, from Hussung Mechanical, of 22 subcontractors and vendors
The 10 week time frame also included asbestos removal, demolition of existing HVAC, plumbing, and electrical systems. Approximately 15,850 feet of piping (3 miles) had to be removed and replaced; the majority of this piping was located in 4-foot high tunnels and crawl spaces underneath the first floor of the building. All electrical switch gears, main transformers, and electrical service to the building had to be replaced. Temporary power was required for 5 weeks.
