Long Island State Veterans Home

Stony Brook, NY

This project involved providing cost estimating services to Kallen & Lamelson for the MEP building systems upgrades. The program for the building was mainly Mechanical and Electrical up grades with some associated general construction work. The fire protection systems were not largely affected by this work.

The scope for this project included new chillers, boilers, chilled and hot water pumps and new ATC (Automatic Temperature Control) and BMS (Building Management System). Since this project replaced existing equipment, the installation of the new equipment had to be installed in phases, at the same time maintaining operation of the existing chilled, hot water and domestic systems. Openings in the building’s exterior were cut and patched to allow the installation of the new equipment and removal of the old.
