Allentown Public Library - HVAC Upgrades

This project consisted of HVAC improvements completed in multiple phases to an occupied public library. The scope of work included full mechanical replacement. The project allowed conversion from electric heating to gas, saving building operating costs. Major equipment installed included the replacement of one chiller, 13 air handlers, variable-frequency drives and a boiler housed in a new mechanical penthouse constructed of steel and exterior panels. Roof work and crane lifts had to be closely coordinated to ensure worker and pedestrian safety.

While most of the work took place inside mechanical spaces, close coordination with the owner and communication with building occupants was required, especially when working over occupied spaces. The library remained open and on a full and regular schedule during construction.
