Contract Type: Signed Fixed Price

Project Date: April 2008

The St Johns College campus is about 350 years old and historically preserved. ACI's Electric Division was utilized to perform the electric on this project.

ACI was awarded the project as a prime contractor. The project consisted of the removal of a high pressure steam plant, and distribution underground piping to 11 buildings which were replaced with a hydronic system. ACI installed over 6000 feet of heating supply and return underground piping and the installation of new HW boilers, pumps, water heaters and storage tank system, including all electrical upgrades. This was a fully active and occupied educational campus.

In three campus buildings, new hydronic terminal equipment was installed throughout the buildings. The other nine buildings steam heat exchangers were removed and new hydronic systems installed. ACI self performed the majority of the project. A new Trane DDC system was installed to control and monitor the entire campus locally and remotely. ACI subcontracted asbestos and insulation, controls, minor GC building structure repairs, balancing, and chimney installation.

Work performed at an active educational facility with no disruption to the facility and no facility downtime.
