Greenview Knolls Elementary School, located in Great Mills, Maryland of St. Mary’s County Public Schools, included the replacement of all HVAC equipment, the addition of fire sprinklers in the original section of the building, replacement of electrical systems, and replacement of window and exterior door systems. ADA Modifications to the building included restroom modifications, interior and exterior signage, and the modification of non-compliant doorways, sinks and counters. The HVAC replacement included all 3 air handlers, 14 fan coil units. 6 circulator pumps, 1 boiler and all of the original ductwork, ceiling tiles and some light fixtures. A hazardous material abatement was required in portions of the building. The project addressed the educational program and facility infrastructure needs to ensure appropriate temperature and humidity control. 

An unconventional, engineering-driven, project delivery process was initiated to address the facility’s compelling MEP systemic needs. PBA focused tightly on the building’s circulatory system, how components are integrated into the structure of the whole building, and the precise sequencing to minimize downtime and maximize safety in a phased, facility-occupied renovation.
