McKenney's, Inc. Develops Energy Conservation Measures for Domestic Water Decentralization

Online PR News – 21-January-2015 – Atlanta, GA – McKenney’s, Inc., the Southeast’s most trusted name in facility construction, operation and maintenance, provided a new decentralized domestic water system at a maximum-security correctional facility in Bessemer, Alabama.

With no up-to-date drawings to indicate current service and systems locations, McKenney's developed the energy conservation measures (ECM) to decentralize the existing hot and cold domestic water system and installed new distribution piping. The facility remained active throughout the project, requiring detailed planning, maximum prefabrication, and minimal disruptions to water service.

The McKenney's team leveraged its knowledge of correctional facility operations, along with its turnkey design/build delivery methods to meet NORESCO’s ROI requirements. McKenney's also conducted detailed site surveys, built full-scale mock-ups, maximized off-site prefabrications, and minimized outages to reduce operational disruptions.
