McKenney’s, Inc. Successfully Completes HVAC Project at a Healthcare Facility Despite Weather Delays

Online PR News – 01-September-2015 – Atlanta, GA – McKenney’s, Inc., the Southeast’s most trusted name in facility construction, operation and maintenance, installed a full-service HVAC system at Polk Medical Center, a new greenfield critical care facility built in Cedartown, Georgia.

Cold, wet, winter weather posed significant challenges for installing the facility’s roof and subsequent interior HVAC rough-ins. The roof required a certain temperature before the installation could begin, which delayed the installation of interior ductwork and piping. With no flexibility in the predetermined completion date, McKenney’s was forced to adjust its schedule to meet the owner’s requirements.

Project Team
* Owner: Polk Medical Center
* General Contractor: Brasfield & Gorrie
* Architect: Earl Swensson Associates, Inc.
* Engineer: Phoenix Design Group
* Contractor: McKenney’s, Inc.

* Design/Assist
* Pipe Shop Prefab
* Sheet Metal Shop Prefab

The team overcame schedule fluctuations through extensive planning, collaboration and expert logistics. With the aid of Trimble GPS technologies, the team planned and sequenced all work with the general contractor and other trade subcontractors to complete the rough-in as quickly as possible. They prefabricated HVAC system materials and coordinated their delivery based on the shifting roof installation schedule.

McKenney’s completed the HVAC installation on time—despite the domino effect created by inclement weather—which assisted the medical center in opening its doors ahead of their original schedule.
