Installation of HVAC system for pre-K annex at Peter A. Reinberg Elementary School

Chicago, IL, August 2021

Project
Install two RTUs with accompanying VAVs, sound attenuators, split systems and exhaust fans.

Challenges
Due to the LEED certification goals on this project, EOS Mechanical worked closely with the owner’s commissioning agent to ensure the HVAC performance stayed on track to meet the LEED goals. Additionally, the controls on the project incorporated items such as a return air economizer and airflow measuring stations, all designed to meet a specific LEED requirements.

The location of Reinberg Elementary School in the residential neighborhood imposed significant limitations on the crane’s size and location. The easiest option was to remove a tree. However, that option didn’t feel right to us given the LEED nature of this job. In partnership with K.R. Miller Contractors and La Grange Crane Service, we were able to install the RTUs thanks to detailed coordination and a smaller crane with multiple setpoints.
