Emcor Services Fagan has received an award for its work on an HVAC installation the Harry S. Truman Presidential Library and Museum in Independence, Missouri.
The Kansas City chapter of the Mechanical Contractors Association gave the company an award for outstanding mechanical installation over $2 million in value.
“We are extremely honored to be recognized by our peers for the work performed on the Harry S. Truman Presidential Library and Museum,” said Michael Crabtree, president of Emcor Services Fagan. “The project presented a number of complex challenges requiring innovative solutions.”
Emcor replaced two chillers and air-handling units with dehumidification systems, but faced a number of challenges in the process, including the need to provide continuous chilled water and cooling comfort during the summer months while also keeping the humidity in archive rooms at stable level.
“Emcor Services Fagan was required to provide continuous chilled water throughout the project’s first phase. We provided a 300-ton temporary air-cooled chiller, hydronic pump and piping to existing building tie-in points to provide temporary chilled water,” Crabtree said. “After temporary chiller startup and prove out, we removed the existing chillers and piping. Due to space constraints with path of travel for the new equipment, we designed and fabricated custom chiller barrel cradles to allow for the new equipment to be installed without demolition to the building.”
