Brimﬁeld Grade School : Brimﬁeld, Illinois
57,180 square feet | $1 million
Brimfield Grade School needed to add air conditioning to its building, as well as upgrade its existing, aging heating system. However, the school’s existing electrical service could not provide enough power to support new HVAC equipment. Also, the facility was not designed to house air conditioning elements, adding additional complexity to the design. All construction work needed to be completed within the summer, creating a tight timeframe for completion as well.
KED SOLUTION : Working within Ceiling Space Constraints
We completed our designs prior to summer, allowing all construction to be completed over the school’s summer break, avoiding disruption to classes. We overcame ceiling space constraints and ductwork routing challenges with extensive sitework and detailed coordination. The existing steam boiler was removed and replaced with a variable refrigerant flow (VRF) system, providing both heating and cooling to the school. The electrical service was upgraded to support the new HVAC equipment as well. As a result, Brimfield Grade School now has a modernized HVAC system, creating a controlled temperature environment for improved learning conditions.
