Removed and properly disposed of one existing faulty split system AC unit, including 150’ of suction and liquid copper piping, originally used with R-22 refrigerant. Freon was recovered in accordance with EPA regulations. Provided and installed 150’ of new suction and liquid copper piping, compatible with the new ozone friendly refrigerant, complete with insulation and interconnecting wiring from the wall mount location to the outside compressor location. A new 1.5 ton wall mount ductless system, straight AC was also provided and installed.
The existing 110 volt power supply with a new 220 volt power supply was replaced and removed, and it was wired to the outside compressor. A new seven-day, programmable thermostat was provided and installed. Test and start-up services were also provided.
Installed an additional industrial compressor, receiver tanks, and high-pressure booster equipment to an overtaxed compressor system in B149 (Hangar 3) at Lakehurst Maxfield Field that was reaching the end of its service life. Additionally, leaks throughout the building were located and repaired, and the hanger’s garage door was replaced with a mechanical roll up entrance.
Replaced pumps, shafts, couplings, bearings, column pipe, and other components of a 1,000 ft. deep well on McGuire Air Force Base (pumps were set at 300 ft). Upon completion of repairs, all components were tested for two hours and the results of the inspection were submitted for review.
Removed approximately 500 linear feet of deteriorated asbestos insulation from Buildings 356 and 360 at Lakehurst Maxfield Field. In accordance with current code, roughly 4,200 linear feet of new 2”- 4” pipe insulation was supplied and installed to prevent exterior moisture penetration.
Dismantled and disposed of an inoperable 250-ton chiller unit and installed a new, matching replacement. Electrical power was locked and tagged out, and the old unit was isolated from chilled water distribution piping using existing valves. The new chiller was rewired, reconnected to water lines, filled, and the initial start-up procedures and operational checks were performed to bring the unit online.
Removed and replaced a chiller unit at Building 5 at Lakehurst Maxfield Field. The project included installing new, in-kind temperature and pressure gauges on chilled water lines, as well as a new manufacturer-recommended flow switch. Electrical and water lines were isolated, and chilled water and heating pumps were replaced (with new pressure gauges installed). All chilled water temperature sensors were extracted, replaced in-kind, and connected to a digital data control (DDC) system. The water in the chiller and the entire chilled water circuit was then balanced in accordance with current standards.
An existing air handling unit at Building 5 was also removed and replaced. Electrical utilities connected to the unit were isolated, additional filters were supplied, and all connected ductwork and ductwork insulation was replaced in-kind.
All ceiling-mounted supply and return grilles were removed and replaced with new hardware. The central thermostat was replaced, and air balancing was performed to ensure all zones connected to the air handler meet current standards. An operational functional check of the entire system was conducted to audit performance and provide training for 87 CESHVAC/R shop personnel.
40 half glass, metal sliding doors and associated tracks and hardware were uninstalled from classrooms in Building 657 at Lakehurst Maxfield Field. An additional 24 half glass, metal doors with side light windows and metal frames were dismantled and removed from classroom corridor entrances.
New, fire-rated doors and metal frames were provided. 40 solid wood, half glass sliding closet doors and 24 solid wood, half glass corridor doors were installed. New locksets, door closers, kickplates, and child finger protection hardware was installed. All work was completed after facility operational hours (6:00pm – 5:30am).
A suspended ceiling (143.5 inches above the floor) was installed with appropriate ceiling tiles in a 2x4 grid. Sprinkler heads were relocated to the appropriate level, and six light fixtures were removed and replaced with new four-foot T5 (four lamp) units. Lamp units were fully housed with lenses and appropriate ballast and mounted flush with the new ceiling grid. A 6x12 ft gym mirror was centered and installed on the north wall, 24 inches above the floor. An extra large ceiling fan was mounted in the center of the room.
Replaced deteriorated fume hood ductwork and associated exhaust fans from Building 5904, a mission critical facility at Fort Dix. Additionally, a catwalk was installed to allow inspection personnel to examine the ductwork from inside the attic space.
Demolished all existing boilers and associated electrical components and piping in Buildings 194, 264, and 485 at Lakehurst Maxfield Field. Provided all personnel, equipment, tools, supervision, and other necessary items. New boilers, electrical components, and piping were installed, and start-up operations were performed to ensure boilers were in good working order.
Repaired the HVAC control system in Building 1835 at McGuire Air Force Base and replaced the existing equipment with a BACnet IP system. Start-up operations were performed, and training was provided to government personnel that directly interface with the system on a daily basis.
Removed the entire Aircraft Wash system at McGuire Air Force Base. Provided and installed new booster pumps, tanks, boilers, water heaters, piping, and electrical components in the mechanical room and mezzanine as specified / required. All piping was insulated per code with factory-applied white vapor barrier all service jackets. Start-up and training was performed for all key government personnel.
